Ann Arbor High School Guide for 2020-2021

With my daughter in 8th grade, I realize that I have as many questions about finding a high school as I did for Kindergarten. There are even differences among the 3 Ann Arbor Public Schools comprehensive high schools

School of Choice & In District Transfer

Many of the local school districts offer School of Choice. School of Choice allows students living outside the district to enroll.

In District Transfers are only offered at Ann Arbor Public Schools. The other local districts only have a single high school.

Ann Arbor Public Schools

Enrollment at Community High School is by lottery and only for those living in the Ann Arbor school district. In order to enter the lottery, both a parent and student must attend an Information Session.

In-District Transfer allows district residents to attend Huron, Pioneer, and Skyline if it is not their zoned school. School of choice allows non-district residents to attend Ann Arbor Public Schools.

There are typically several windows for In-District Transfer/School of Choice. At the close of each window, applicants are notified of their assignment. It is always best to apply in the early rounds. My daughter’s guidance counselor warned us that Pioneer was the only one to reach capacity before the last in district transfer/school of choice window.

The first window for In-District Transfer/School of Choice is January 14-February 9.

Other Public School Districts

  • Lincoln – School of Choice Window Open at time of publication
  • Dexter offers limited School of Choice into their IB program. Their website still has 2019-2020 information.
  • Milan – 2019-2020 School of Choice open through January 24. 2020-2021 information will probably be available after that.
  • Saline – 2020-2021 Information not yet available.
  • Whitmore Lake – 2020-2021 Information not yet available
  • Ypsilanti – 2019-2020 School of Choice Window still open through February 12.

High School Information Sessions

Attending an Open House or Information Session is one of the best ways to learn about a high school. Several high schools also offer the opportunity for an 8th grader to shadow a freshman. My friends whose kids have shadowed a student highly recommend it.
