Why are you asking?
Did your daughter not get accepted into a HS yet?

They’re closing down at some point... so no ninth grade anymore.

Yes, this is really sad, as it's the only school that takes in those that no one else wants;ironically the cream of the crop!

I can't imagine what will happen to these girls now, without Machon. Mainstream schools don't want them because of academics. Kiruv schools aren't for them.

What about Ichud in mainstream schools?

This is so strange how things change.

About 15 years ago it was harder to get into Machon than anywhere else, while Bais Yaakov High School took in almost everyone, as long as it wasnt a huge frumkeit issue.

Is the reason for the Machon downfall the fact that Boro Park became more and more Chassidish, or were there other reasons?

There were only 5 girls that actually registered for ninth grade.

How many 9th graders did Machon have last year? Much more? And why the decrease?

No, definitely other reasons.
BYBP, Mesillas BY, BYHS, Bnos Yaakov, D’Rav Meir have lots of Boro Park clientele and are thriving.

Are the reasons a secret that no one knows?

I’m not finding it sad at all.
This was a long time coming.
They took in all the unwanted girls but it was/is a toxic environment and the administration was incapable of dealing with the issues.
I discussed this on another recent thread where someone opened a thread asking if there was a school like Oz Vehadar in Brooklyn.

There’s no point in discussing in it if the school is closing down, no?

It exists, but not every girl wants to be known as an "ichud kid" and some don't need as much support (but still need some)

You know it for a fact?
I'm sure, there would be more between now and the end of August.
