Slauson Middle School (named after lifelong educator Herbert Slauson) is a school that houses grades 6-8 since 1937. It was opened a year after Herbert Slauson's death. Feeder elementary schools include Eberwhite, Bach, Dicken, and Lawton. Most Slauson students continue on to Pioneer High School, although those in the Bach choice zone are in the Skyline district. Their school mascot is golden bears, and their colors are 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.
- 1937: The school was first opened, named in honor of Herbert Slauson, a former Ann Arbor Superintendent of Schools. The first principal was Rolls B. Finley.
