A green carpetea chemistry lab and three new classrooms will be completed for the 1970-71 terra at Ann Arbor's Greenhills School. The private, co-educational day school, located on 33 acres of the Earhart estáte at 850 Greenhills Dr., will extend its enrollment to grade 11 this year. By the fall of 1971 the school will be complete with grades 7 through 12. With 60 students enrolled the first year of operation, the school has continued to increase and 155 are projected for this fall. Headmaster Edward M. Read says 200 students are expected for the following year. "We are aiming for a maximum enrollment of 240." This year will begin a full athletic program with more inter-scholastic activities for both girls and boys. Greenhills completed its construction of a new gymnasium and locker rooms late last spring. Other new facilities at the school will be an exercise room, faculty room, book store, new set of washrooms, a business office and conference rooms. The school is being completed in stages and according to Read there will be five additional classrooms, a biology lab which will include a greenhouse, science lecture room, art room with adjoining court, and dining facilities. These additions are scheduled to be completed within the next three years. Programs in orchestra and chorus will be expanded for this fall with the addition of a part-time music director to the faculty. Spanish will be offered for the first time along with chemistry courses for lOth and llth grade students. The teaching staff, which was 14 last year, will be increased to 18. Tuition for Greenhills is $900 and approximately 20 per cent of the students are on scholarships. Classes are small, usually with a maximum of 20 students, and, according to Read, "We intend to maintain a small pupil-teacher ratio." The first day of classes at the school will be Sept. 10, and there are only a few openings still available.
