    The Angell PTO is an active and fantastic organization. Please watch for a note from the PTO in the opening packet. They will be sending home a letter asking for an enrichment fee from every student.

    This money will go towards school supplies and field trips for all students. 




    Enrollment at Angell Elementary School 


    We eagerly welcome registration and enrollment of students who live in the Angell attendance area.  Please consult the AAPS website if you have questions about your residency and assigned school. 


    Space available in-district (within the Ann Arbor Public Schools attendance area) transfer requests: 

    Normally, the window for in-district transfer requests is from the third week of February to the third week of March. Based on enrollment numbers, it is very unlikely that Angell will have openings for in-district transfers


    After our Kindergarten Round-Up, February 26, 2019 from 6:00-7:00 PM, we will know if there is a possibility of any in-district transfer requests. Schools with space available are determined annually based upon capacity and projected enrollment. 

    Please note that requests applications are accepted anytime within the application window timeframe. Applications are NOT processed on a first come, first served basis. 

    Mr. Court, principal, welcomes meeting with parents seeking an in-district transfer request once it is determined that there are openings at Angell. 


    Learn more about the space available in-district transfer process here.

    The school was built at a cost of $280,000, including the site.  The school was originally called South University Elementary School." South University Elementary" became "Angell Elementary School" in honor of James B. Angell during the 1920s.
     Angell was the longest serving president of the University of Michigan, from 1871-1909.  
    Forrest G. Averill was the first principal of the school.  
    The school was initially opened as a combination elementary and junior high school, serving students in grades K-8. The enrollment area of the school was expanded in 1974 to include the University of Michigan family and graduate housing near the North Campus. The first major renovation occurred under the direction of Elizabeth B. Michael in 1976. Two classrooms were added in 2007.
