Auburn is the home of the Wildcats! Our school colors are Midnight Blue, Country Blue, and White. Students, staff, and visitors will see our colors throughout the building--in the floor tile, the lockers, the gym wall padding, and the office carpet, among various other areas.
We educate approximately 570 eager and enthusiastic students each day. Auburn's staff of approximately 65 licensed and classsified members know our purpose is to provide a safe, clean, structured learning environment for our students.
Approximately 10% of our students receive targeted assistance in programs for students with disabilities, and nearly 20% receive enrichment learning in our Gifted and Talented program.
