     History
    (from the ontario heritage foundation plauque)
    constructed in 1886, the aurora public school is one of the finest remaining examples in ontatio of a public school designed in the high victorian manner. the building features a picturesque or irregular silhouette, a mixture of styles and an abundance of decoration. its prominent architectural details include a belvedere atop a hipped roof, parapet gables with bold finials and an ornamented belfry. these elements are enhanced be the use of elaborate brickwork for the relieving arches and textural panels. although the school's interior has been altered over the years, the exterior remains in its original elegance and it indicative of the importance placed upon education here and throughout the province in the late 19th century.
