Ann Arbor Public Schools Reviews

I appreciate how the atmosphere is very diverse not only in the individual schools, but as a community. Speaking of community, everybody intertwines with each other. Personally, I am apart of the elementary play as a high school student. I also know several middle school students who also participate. It creates a more compact community which is reflected into the classroom. In the actual school itself, we are blessed to be one of the higher ranked school districts in Michigan. In my experience, I've read books in the curriculum that I think are essential to read that those in the next town over never heard of. The arts is also such an important part of Ann Arbor Public Schools(AAPS). There are so many options to participate in the arts, and not necessarily in the traditional sense. There are dance clubs and art class, theater club, drum line, choir clubs, jazz band, piano and guitar classes also the traditional music classes.

Overall I've had a good experience with the Ann Arbor Public Schools. I've had mostly good teachers, with a few exceptions. The best part about the Ann Arbor Public Schools, specifically Pioneer High School, is the exceptional music program. The directors are phenomenal and the music we play is incredible. Band has definitely been a highlight throughout my four years at Pioneer. The one thing I would like to see in the Ann Arbor Public Schools is bad teachers getting fired. There are a few that everyone knows are terrible teachers, yet nothing is done to improve their teaching.
Going to a Ann Arbor school makes me feel that my education isn’t valued because I'm a African American. It’s known to have the biggest achievement gap in the nation. I constantly feel like a walking target. For example Last month African American students were physically attacked, our clothes were torn, things were thrown at us, And racist thing were being said and no immediate action was taken. When we tried to protest they took our signs and covered them up just to save the school's image. The Community assistants also target african americans not only is there an achievement but there is also a suspension rate gap as well. I believe Ann arbor seems like It is a great school district but only because They're constantly sweeping things under the rug. I always tell people If you want to get a decent education go to a school in ann arbor but if you want to valued and important and have a good high school experience don't.
