Pninim is pretty chilled out BY. We were concerned about that though cause chilled out BY could also mean a girl from. A BY family going in the other direction.
On the other hand... Don't necessarily want to send to an MO school where girls are on the way up cause might expose dd to things that she has not been exposed to yet.
as far as I know, TD hanhala is yeshivish. Don't think they are OK with girls hanging with boys. But, they will accept a girl even if she does as long as she is looking to grow. What I was told is, they accept a girl who hangs with boys and that has always been acceptable for her not the BY girl who hangs with boys. Darchei Bina is Definitely has more BY girls than TD. But, I'm afraid there is a "hang with boy" element there also.

My DH teaches at 5 different seminaries. The girls eat by me all the time. Bnos Avigail sounds like it is what you are looking for (my DH doesn't teach there but I have had there girls many times) It is an amazing place. Pninim also sounds like a good option. They are both on Neve's campus so easy to check out both when you are visiting.

Sounds like youre looking for Lahav. It's a half year seminary with the option of continuing on untill Pesach. Not so academic, but super chilled and growth oriented.

It's VERY yeshivish. Smart phones are confiscated the first day. Uniforms ALL the time, even on tiyulim. Very early curfews. NOT chilled out.

Lahav is super jappy, very in towny, and very BY. Doesn't sound like what OP's DD is looking for at all...

I was an out of town chilled and open BY girl and I absolutely adored Darchei Binah! The staff is amazing, there are enough girls there that you will find your group, and it is truly a school of growth.

Hatzlacha! Hard choices!

That was a number of years ago. Then they moved to a really nice building on Yirmiyahu, but I think Bnos Chava is there now.

When checking out a seminary, as important as the fit is, you have to decide if it's a place you would trust with your daughter for a full 10 months. For me, that would be as important as the type.

This, 100%.

(Which is why many people wouldn't send to Pninim... I wouldn't entrust my daughter's wellbeing to a seminary where staff members who are still there covered up abuse...)
