) the psychometric test at the
end of sixth grade and was
accepted. But the local coun-
cil forced her to remain in the
neighborhood for "integra-
tion" purposes. (Integration,
mandatory until the end of
junior high school, requires
that each class consist of a
certain percentage of stu-
dents from all socio-economic
backgrounds.)
When she reapplied for
high school, she was accepted
to another highly regarded
academic school. But others
are not so lucky. "We have
neighbors who own a fruit
and vegetable stall in the
souk (market), and who are
upwardly mobile. They were
shattered when their daugh-
ter wasn't accepted to a com-
prehensive high school," says
the other.
School psychologist Colod-
ner, while critical of the high
schools' reliance on psycho-
metric test scores, says the
schools have a very extensive
counseling system. "Long
before the kid gets to ninth
grade, he knows if he's head-
ed for Harvard or junior col-
lege," he says. "If the kid is
suited for academic high
school but blows it on the
psychometric test, the coun-
selor can go to bat for him and
usually wins."
(It's important to note that
attending a vocational school
is not a disgrace in Israel.
Some have sophisticated elec-
tronics programs and their
graduates are much in de-
mand by the army and
industry.)
Once in high school, stu-
dents have one year to declare
a major. They can choose
science, computers, history,
"knowledge of Israel," ac-
counting or business. Stu-
/ dents take some general re-
quirements in their first year;
in 11th and 12th grades, they
concentrate on their major.
Many students say that
school isn't too difficult until
11th grade, when they begin
to take the bagrut, or matric-
ulation exams, that are simi-
lar to the New York State
Regents.
Technically, anyone who
passes his bagrut is automat-
ically accepted into a univer-
sity, but each department has
its own admissions require-
ments. Hebrew University
Medical School has different
requirements than its School
of Social Work. Some schools
require interviews, but most
use two criteria for accept-
ance: the bagrut scores and
psychometric testing.

One of the most important parts of good health is a regular checkup, for everyone,
not just the kids . If it's been "too long" since someone in your family has seen a doctor,
no matter the reason, do something now Maybe just a little reminder and a gentle
nudge are all it will take. But perhaps some help finding the right 'doctor will be
necessary. If that's the case, let our no-charge Physicians Referral Program go to
work for your family.
As close as the phone, our health care professionals are ready to listen and help.
They understand the reasons for needing a referral — new in town; doctor has retired;
never had a doctor; just not comfortable with this doctor. Ask us about office hours and
locations. Give us your preference for male or female doctors. Do you want a Family
Practice physician? Do you need a specialist? Most of our 300 doctors are located
here in the community and throughout Oakland, Livingston and Wayne Counties.
We'll find just the right doctor for you. And when we do, you'll have the comfort of
knowing that if hospitalization is ever necessary, you'll stay in the neighborhood, be-
cause you, your family and your doctor are all part of the same Huron Valley Hospital family.
