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.
