Haisley News

  • Welcome to Haisley Elementary

    Haisley Elementary School is the home of the Huskies! We are located on the Northwest side of Ann Arbor. We focus on high-quality teaching to set up all of our Huskies for success. We offer a range of exciting programs and opportunities for students. A few of the amazing opportunities that our students enjoy are Project Lead the Way (a STEM-based, hands-on, project-based curriculum), Haisley Players, a student theater group that puts on a full-scale, Broadway-style play each year. We are committed to engaging families and building strong community connections to make Haisley feel like home to ALL. Please continue to visit our school’s website for updates and information. Also on our website, you will find district updates about our response to the Coronavirus. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email at watsond@aaps.k12.mi.us or call our school at 734-994-1937.
