going to enroll their children).
This is something that we
will have to explore!'
Ninth-grade enrollment at
Hillel was higher when junior
high schools (seventh through
ninth grades) were the public
school norm. But the switch
to middle schools (sixth
through eighth grade), with
ninth grades moved to the
high schools, has put pressure
on Hillel families. Students
have been forced to choose
between staying at Hillel and
then entering public high
school in the 10th grade, or
starting high school with
other freshmen in the ninth
grade.
Dr. Guyer would like to see
another option for Hillel
students and other Conser-
vative Jews in the Detroit
area: a community Jewish

high school for full-time
students. He has raised the
question with the Jewish
Welfare Federation's educa-
tion task force and the task
force on identity and
affiliation.
"Throughout the communi-
ty there is a lack of high
school options on a day-school
basis," Dr. Guyer said. "Not
everyone is appropriate for
Akiva or the Yeshiva!'
"As class sizes got larger at
Hillel," he said, "we had
hoped that more would stay
(for the ninth grade). But in
fact, peer pressure has forced
the opposite.
"With the immediate class,
10 kids have made a decision
(to stay at Hillel). But 33
others have decided the other
way . . . and we have to deal
with the realities!"
