Where are there any Jewish high schools my son could go to for a good Hebrew education where he won't be the only person of color? I need to know now.

If it was a “Jewish” school, then it wouldn’t be “diverse”.
“Diverse” means a large, varied mix.
“Jewish school” means focused on or limited to a very, very specific group.

I think the OP means racial diversity. There are Asian, African, and Middle Eastern POC Jewish students. I would try looking at the schools in the suburbs of Detroit, maybe one of the solomon schecheter affiliates. There is also diversity in culture, such as Ashkenazi or Sephardic, which has different languages, foods, music, etc.

The only diverse Yeshivas I can think of would have Ethiopian or Yemeni (Sephardic) Jews. By and large Yeshivas are 99% white Ashkenazi Jews.

Some Jewish high schools in Metro Detroit do have students from an Ethiopian or Yemeni background. Some A.A. kids were originally adopted by their families, too. They aren't all Yeshivas; there are one or two but are less common here.

What am I thinking?! Some Jewish families have children of Asian descent as well. If you are serious about this issue, call the school I mentioned.
