Jones School

Jones School was an anchor of Ann Arbor’s historically Black neighborhood (what is now Kerrytown) from the early twentieth century until 1965. Many living Ann Arbor residents remember attending Jones School during the Civil Rights Era. In 1964 the Ann Arbor Board of Education acknowledged that, with over 75% Black students, Jones was a “de facto” segregated school. Jones School closed in 1965, and several years later the building reopened as Community High School.

Second grade pupils at the Jones School have set up a model "health" store as a study project under the guidance of their teacher, Miss Sara Donnelly. Its purpose is to acquaint the youngsters with the business of buying and selling and also to give them practical practice in arithmetic, lettering, and other school subjects. The five pupils pictured are (left to right) Marilyn Jean Kitt of 310 N. Fifth Ave., Charles Bird of 511 N. Fifth Ave., Thomas R. DeVries of 110 N. State St., Annabella Portilla of 119 N. Main St., and James J. Dixon of 515 N. Fifth Ave. Gene D. Maybee, principal of the school, is inspecting the project.
