Ann Arbor Public Schools Reviews
Review Ann Arbor Public Schools
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.
Having a parent who works for AAPS as while as attending K-12, I have grown up deeply rooted in the AAPS system and I feel I have benefitted greatly. Students like me are provided with several opportunities that prepare us for college, such as a variety of AP classes as well as community resources that utilize the proximity to the University of Michigan. While I think inclusivity, be it racial, socioeconomic, ect. is an issue, I am aware that the schools are taking measures to work against it. AAPS has given me a quality education that challenged my abilities, helped discover my passions, and prepared me for college and beyond.
