Kindergarten vs Young 5s

Kindergarten has changed since I was in school. There are more academic expectations and it is now a full-day program. Young 5s offers a transitional program for younger children who are not quite ready for Kindergarten.

The Young 5s program has become increasingly popular in recent years. When my 8th grade started school, there were only a couple of Young 5 programs in AAPS. Now every elementary school offers a Young 5s program.

For Ann Arbor Public Schools, students must be born between May 1 and December 1 to be eligible for the Young 5s Program. Most Young 5s programs are full day programs. There are limited Young 5 slots at each school. If you are interested in this program, plan to enroll at the Roundup.

Lotteries, In-District Transfer & School of Choice

Ann Arbor Public Schools

Lotteries are used for Ann Arbor Open (K-8) and Community High School. Both schools are in high demand. In-District Transfer allows district residents to apply to a school other than their home school. School of choice allows non-district residents to attend Ann Arbor Public Schools.

There are typically several windows for In-District Transfer and 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. I know my daughter’s guidance counselor said that in 2019-2020 Pioneer was the only one of the 3 comprehensive high schools to close to transfers.

The first window is for In-District Transfer only. It runs from January 10 to February 14, 2022. This window is only available for Young 5s, Kindergarten, 9&10 at Pioneer, Skyline, and Huron and 11th grade IB program at Huron.

The second window is February 28-April 1 and will include all of elementary, middle school, the K-8 A2 STEAM, and high school (9th & 10th at Pioneer, Skyline, and Huron plus 11th grade IB at Huron).

A third window is anticipated for May/June 2022.

School of Choice does not have dates announced yet.

Other Public School Districts

  • Lincoln – School of Choice Window Open for current school year (2021-2022)
  • Dexter offers limited School of Choice. The first window will open March 7-18. A second window will be in late July, early August
  • Milan – 2021-2022 School of Choice closed on January 28, 2022. 2022-2023 information not available. The 2021-2022 window opened on April 1. I would expect similar timing.
  • Saline – Tentative window of April 4-May 2
  • Whitmore Lake – Still has 2021-2022 information
  • Ypsilanti – 2021-2022 School of Choice Window still open through February 9. Last year the window opened on February 11. Plan on similar timing

Events from our Sponsors


Young 5s & Kindergarten Roundups, Information Sessions, & Open Houses

Each school/district seems to use a different term – Roundup, Information Session, Open House – and may even offer more than one of these.

Even with the same name each school will run their event a little differently. Some will be parent only, some will include students. You will typically learn about the school, have a tour, and an opportunity to enroll. Each school will operate theirs a little different. I suggest contacting the school to see if your future kindergartener should attend.

With school closures due to the snow on February 26 & 27, roundups on those nights have been postponed. Ann Arbor Public Schools has not yet announced new dates. Stay tuned for details
