Thank you! I have a good mild mannered daughter. She is an honor student but isn’t interested in doing an intensive high pressure year of seminary. She wants a laid back school that will help her grow but not give 20 page reports throughout the year. I want her to have fun but also grow. She is shy and more of an introvert. If the girls are wild (partying, pushing boundaries, boys etc) she will not be comfortable and will likely want to leave. She is a rule follower!

She is very interested in ateres and I was as well until I heard more recent info about boys, troubled girls, drugs etc that have me very worried! I know sweet girls who went but I also know a very very troubled girl (who is also extremely sweet).

If anyone knows any other options we should look into I’d appreciate it. We are considered “just plain frum” she goes to super frum schools but we work, are more open minded not yeshivish.
Thanks for your help!

This is a very good description of me and I loved Ateres. I was there not too long ago, but also not in the past couple of years. So I can't answer about any changes in the past year or two, but the administration is very good at being on top of what is going on. The girls don't usually realize this at the time.
I would want to differentiate between unstable girls and girls from unstable backgrounds. For the former, I don't think that is common in ateres. If girls would acting in a negative way that affected other girls, they would be asked to stop or leave. (depending on what they did.) As for their backgrounds, it's a place that's very accepting of people of different places and families, but they are very strict that all ideas that are taught need to be Emes. (for example, girls are allowed to ask any questions, but if most girls would be "past that" kind of question then they would ask a teacher privately rather than in class.
