Ann Arbor Public Schools Reviews

My school experience has not always been normal. I was homeschooled until the fourth grade when I chose to attend a private school for a brief period. I wasn't very happy there and it was too expensive so I switched to a charter school. After completing eighth grade I was privileged enough to get into Community High School. Seeing as I didn't come from the regular middle schools I only recognized about three faces as a walked the halls for the first day. However, I was welcomed by not only the teachers but my peers as well. Looking back as a soon to be graduate I never would of thought I would have built the relationships I have today. I am sad to say goodbye but grateful for all the knowledge I have absorbed and I will forever cherish the relationships I have formed through the years.

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.
