Slauson Middle School (named after lifelong educator Herbert Slauson) was a school that housed grades 6-8, from 1937 through 2015. It was opened a year after Herbert Slauson's death. Feeder elementary schools include Eberwhite, Bach (has a choice zone to go to Forsythe or Slauson), Dicken, and Lawton. Most Slauson students continued on to Pioneer High School, although those in the Bach choice zone are in the Skyline district. Their school mascot was golden bears, and their colors were gold and red.
Ann Arbor middle schools have five sport seasons for students to participate in. Slauson traditionally had very high participation in sports and after-school clubs.
Due to a lack in funding, Slauson closed permanently earlier this year. It is currently used for summer camp programs and occasional usage for the pool during those programs. There are plans to demolish it's structure.
