Ann Arbor Public Schools has outdone themselves! The schools in this district doesn't just focus on students passing on an academic level, but achieving and striving through life no matter what. The teachers and overall staff is very supportive and makes sure the student has everything they need to succeed in their classes. As a high school student who attends Ann Arbor Pioneer High School, I have many outlets and resources I can go to, to ensure that I have everything I need to focus and do my absolute best in classes. A student's mental health is a key factor to their success and Ann Arbor Public Schools provide many resources for this to make sure that everyone has an equal opportunity no matter what.

I really love this school district. I've been here since fourth grade and I've had a wonderful experience. The teachers are my favorite part! They are always very welcoming and willing to help you learn. I go to Community High School, where we have especially great teachers. The develop impactful relationships with their students and care about each and every one.
School system felt very diverse and provided what I feel to be a good quality education. A large push in academics towards science and mathematics based courses provide most students with necessary skills that they may use throughout their careers. Meanwhile, elective courses provide fun yet challenging opportunities to focus on a students interests and expose them to possible career paths.However, there is a large disconnect between schools admin and teachers and their students. Many teachers are focused on solely teaching a lesson and entirely neglect to see how their class comprehends it. This gap between teachers and students can be quite challenging at times and may lead to academic failure.
