The Ann Arbor School System

Ann Arbor, Michigan, is one of the smaller cities in the state with a population of only about 113,000. All the schools in the city are part of the Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS) district. The district is noteworthy for having one of the nation’s leading music programs. The school district serves around 17,000 students in about 35 schools.

When you live in a smaller community, it often feels like all your child’s educational needs can be addressed sufficiently. However, even students in the smallest schools sometimes need a little extra help. Varsity Tutors helps parents connect with professional Ann Arbor tutors who can give children the support they need to pursue academic goals.

Ann Arbor Test Scores

Students throughout the nation begin preparing for their ACT or SAT exam when they enter high school. Ann Arbor students must also prepare for the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-STEP) exams in grades 3-8 and the Michigan Merit Exam (MME) in grade eleven. Students in grades K-2 take the Early Literacy and Mathematics Benchmark Assessments. All these exams test students’ language arts and mathematics skills, with some also testing history and science. A personal tutor can help your child prepare for any of their upcoming assessments.

Because Ann Arbor is such a small school district, there are only a handful of high school choices for parents. Here are recent assessment scores at these schools.

Having a child work with a personal tutor is a logical step for many parents when a standardized exam is inching closer. However, students can benefit from personalized instruction throughout the school year and during summer vacations. Private tutoring can be especially helpful for students who are in classrooms with many other students. In busy classrooms, it can be difficult for the instructor to give each student the type of valuable individualized instruction students need. A personal tutor can provide your child with this one on one support.

It may be surprising for parents to find that while Ann Arbor Public Schools is a relatively small district, class sizes for most area high schools remain relatively large. The student-to-teacher ratio is similar to what you would see in a much larger school district. Consult the table below for more insight.

Session Summaries by Tutors

Tutoring review by Benjamin in Ann Arbor, MI
Today we covered quadratic functions and the various forms they may be expressed. We analyzed the usefulness of each, then went over the methods that would be used to find the principal components of the graph from each form of the equation. The exercise we finished it off with required the use of these concepts to rule out expressions as being distinct from a given abstract parabola graph. The student appreciated the strengths and differences between each form of the equation as we worked through each section.

Tutoring review by Jackson in Ann Arbor, MI
Today was our final chance to work on the current section before all of the work was due. We got through most of it, and what was left was entirely review. I was impressed by the student's performance today; she did much better than she did during our previous sessions. Radicals were initially very difficult, but she seems to have finally grasped them.

Tutoring review by Chloe in Ann Arbor, MI
The student read her book with a lot of focus. There were some words she had to sound out, but other than that she read with fluency. She worked on her spelling words. She did very well with her spelling words. She did a nice job on her math, too.

Tutoring review by Nathan in Ann Arbor, MI
We went over net force problems and how to decompose a vector into the horizontal and vertical components so that we can sum forces in those directions. The student seems to be understanding a lot.

Tutoring review by Kelsey in Ann Arbor, MI
The student and I had a good session today. He pushed through to review two full reading passages. He had forgotten some of the smaller strategies for the reading, but remembered them once we went through a few question sets together. I'm looking forward to seeing him for our last review session next week.
