Who We Are 

Our Location and Attendance Boundaries

Why We Exist 

In 2018, Aurora Public Schools in collaboration with the Aurora community began a project called Blueprint APS. The goal was to give families school choice and to streamline the use of each school building to maximize student usage and to save the taxpayers money. One region that was impacted was the Del Mar Park Region.  

Through much collaboration and decision making, Lyn Knoll Elementary, South Middle School and Sixth Avenue would close to utilize those buildings in more efficient ways.  The children in these neighborhoods will consolidate into one, single neighborhood school: This new P8 school, Del Mar Academy.
