Annapolis High School is a high school located in Dearborn Heights, Michigan, United States. Annapolis High School is one of three high schools located in Dearborn Heights, the others being Crestwood High School and Robichaud High School. The school was built in the late 1950s and was known as Best Junior High School. It wasn't until Nov. 29, 1966 at a school board meeting when it was decided that Annapolis High School was to be established. Annapolis opened their doors in Sept. 1967 to approximately 450 students.
In 2002, the high school made headlines when it dropped its football program due to lack of student interest. This happened again in 2012 when the team did not have enough upperclassmen to support a varsity team, and the few varsity players that were left played JV football with the freshmen and sophomores. This resulted in controversy throughout the school's athletic conference, and additional controversy was caused by uncalled penalties on the offensive line in a win at Garden City.
