Ann Arbor Public Schools has long been known for its dedication to the arts. Now theater classes are expanding at every level, right down to two elementary schools. Beginning this school year, AAPS staff includes a theater teacher teaching K-5 theater at Burns Park and Lawton schools. The hope is to expand into more elementary schools in the future.
