high school is not only chassidish there are a lot of litvish girls there too. The girls that I know that are there LOVE IT! Principals are very focused and caring about each girl. I am really impressed. My daughter does not go there but two of her friends do and I regret not sending her there in some ways.
There is a lot of learning and personal growth going on there. Classes are small.

wow, that was the info I was looking for. My biggest issue would be the yiddish as my daughter doesn't know a word of it, totally litvish upbringing. Do they still teach in yiddish? I would love something small and warm for my daughter, and positive with individual attention. It sounds like a dream.

elementary I do not not know, High school does not have yiddish, the girls that I know that are there are litivish without any yiddish in their vocabulary. I know they have chassidish girls in their class, it is a real mix, reminds me of BYHS in BP.

I think it's partially government funded, but they have longer hours so they charge more than most Israeli schools
Something like 500 shekel per month , still a lot less than American schools
I send there and I'm happy to answer any questions

Limudei Kodesh are in Yiddish, mostly American chassidish teachers
Limudei Chol are in English and Hebrew, depending on the subject
Most of my girls' teachers are really warm and caring and amazing teachers bh!

How many classes do they have in the younger elementary grades? How many girls per class?
Is the academics on a decent level compared to tomer devorah in bp? Does a 5 and 8 year old need to know hebrew to fit in?

I don't have any girls in high school yet, but from seeing the girls, I can tell that it's a more Israeli crowd.
The girls are mostly not Yiddish speaking, a lot of them come from other bais yakovs here.
There are 2 classes per grade in elementary, first grade has 3 - to help with kriya
Preschool has 4 classes each, one Yiddish, 3 English, and they have amazing Morahs!
I'll answer the rest after Shabbos, gotta go

My baby decided she wants to nurse again, so I'm back Wink
Academic level is good, I think, probably comparable to American chassidish schools.
There are actually quite a few Tomer Devora graduates teaching there, and Rebetzin Davis is on top of the curriculum.
A 5 year old needs zero Hebrew knowledge, they don't have any Hebrew lessons, they start in Pre 1A, with most girls knowing nothing prior to that.
An 8 year old might need a bit of tutoring for the subjects that are taught in Hebrew, like math... But most girls can't speak Hebrew at that point yet, most teachers speak English as well
Conversations between girls is also only English.
