Thurston Elementary is home to 475 proud Thurston Herons in grades Young 5 through fifth.
Located in north Ann Arbor, the school opened in 1964 and was named for Lee Mohrmann Thurston, who served as an Ann Arbor School Board treasurer and AAPS assistant superintendent before later serving as the state’s superintendent of public instruction. In 1953, President Dwight Eisenhower nominated Thurston to become the United States Commissioner of Education.
