Community High School Reviews

All Categories
Community High School is a place where students can experience a level of autonomy not made available at any of the other high schools in the district. Additionally, the school itself is very informal and few rules are imposed upon the students (no suspension for missing class, etc.). There are some truly amazing teachers that will make for an amazing academic experience (Judith, Matt, Robbie, Chloe, Jon, Jason, Ed, and Moe are really the all-stars), and the open-campus policy does allow for much better meals than those found in AAPS cafeterias (though the surrounding restaurants are NOT cheap). What really hurts Community, however, is the fact that there is a very specific mindset expected of all students who attend the school. That mindset reflects that of most residents of Ann Arbor in general and preaches very quasi-liberal ideals. It seems that to openly drift from said mindset is to remove yourself almost entirely from the rest of the community at Community, staff included.
Review Your School
Community High School prides itself in providing its students with its name, a community. The teachers are all spoken to on a first name basis, and a general feeling of equality between persons is present in every classroom. There is not a feeling of hierarchy attached to our dean or any of the other faculty member in the building. Community maintains a small student population, and due to this fact, not all students who want to attend can. Enrollment is decided via lottery. Transportation is more challenging than that of the other schools, due to a lack of a direct bus route. This leads to many parents driving their children to school, which can be incredibly invasive for their schedules. A bus route, at the very least, would be appreciated.
Community high school is a very inclusive school with so much student support. We have had many tradgedies throughout our school and school district, and our students support each other even if we are not close. Going to community gives me a sense of belonging feeling like I am a part of a closely-knit community. Our teachers are great resources outside of the classroom for extra help and are always willing to give it if it means making your educational experience easier.
