    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 / Young Fives Round-Up, 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.  

    AAPS has more information about in-district transers here.

    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.
