Who Gets Admitted to Greenhills School? The
largest groups of students enter Greenhills each year in grades 6
and 9, but students are admitted to all grades as space permits
(students are rarely admitted to 12th grade, and usuallyonly
if they are movingto the area).
Greenhills attracts a
student body of approximately 540 students, which is inclusive of
many different interests, abilities, and backgrounds.
represent the racial, economic, religious, and cultural diversity
of Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and the surrounding communities.
increasing number of students coming to Greenhills from Plymouth,
Canton, Northville, Novi, Brighton, South Lyon, Pinckney, Milford,
Dexter, Chelsea, Saline, and other communities demonstrates the
appeal and value of a Greenhills education to a broad range of
students and families.
The Admission Committee works to support
these aspects of the school's inclusiveness.
Fit This is the most
important factor in the Greenhills admission process, and therefore
admission to Greenhills is based on many criteria including essays,
teacher recommendations, the academic transcript, participation in
extracurricular activities, test scores, the Greenhills school
visit, and the interview.
While each piece of the application plays
an important role in assisting the admission committee in making a
decision, no one piece—neither essay nor test scores, for
example—will be the deciding factor.
The admission committee
takes a holistic approach and will read each application in detail,
and each application will be read by at least three people
including the Director of Admission, who reads every application.

until February 13, 2012 and therefore Greenhills will be unable to
give a financial aid decision with admission decisions mailed
However, as noted elsewhere, financial aid priority

by the January deadline.
