Abbot


Bookmark and Share

Smaller ranch homes abound on the flat, quiet streets of Ann Arbor's affordable and family-friendly Abbot neighborhood on the northwest side. North and west of M-14, newer rural residential development mixes with farmland between Wagner and Zeeb; these Scio Township lots are typically big enough to require a riding lawn mower.

Around the school itself, the Hollywood Park subdivision is conveniently close to highway access ramps and the commercial strip along Maple and Stadium, which includes 2 groceries: upscale Plum Market and discount ALDI. A major apartment complex, 328-unit Arbor Landings, is discreetly tucked away off Dexter west of Maple. At its westernmost point, Abbot's district dips south of Jackson to take in most of the Scio Farms manufactured home community (a few blocks in this neighborhood are assigned to Haisley School).

Abbot schoolchildren graduate to Forsythe Middle School and Skyline High.
