Love it! The teachers are absolutely amazing. They are 100% invested in the success of their students. The open campus allows students to assume responsibilty over their actions. Plus, being able to enjoy lunch in downtown Ann Arbor is amazing. I loved being able to leave the stress of school behind for an hour while enjoying a nice, peaceful lunch at my all time favorite, The Slurping Turtle. And with so many amazing places to explore, the hands on learning opportunities never stop. Being able to collect data and specimen directly from the river truly allows students to connect with the material they're learning.

Community High is a lifesaver for me, although there are flaws. Mostly in the lack of communication between administration & students potential or currently enrolled. Reflected in facilities, diversity being the subject I am most concerned with.
Community is a jack-of-trades school, with strong STEAM foundations that fights lack of recourses, continuing to succeed. It doesn't market itself that way, targeting a niche group skewing the diversity numbers by a large margin.
More students with disabilities are enrolling to Community with every year, & if the resources are not available they'll un-enroll. For example, in room 306 a chair that is wheelchair accessible is the same chair that falls over the most.
I know it seems like I am bashing Community I'm not trying to do that. What's listed above are my largest concerns because its necessary that Community continues to be a safe space for students. Without Community I would not be the person I am today. I feel truly ready for anything.
Community is a great school with engaged teachers and a welcoming social environment! There are also lots of fun, quirky traditions.
