One of the more open-minded, chilled-out high schools in Lakewood, but I still wouldn't call it "modern". More like "out of town"ish. Still not the easiest to get into. By some miracle we did, and we're very happy BH.

I wholeheartedly agree with amother Bronze. My dd's are so happy there, they really care about each student from the top down.

We're extremely happy!
My only complain is that it's not too challenging academically !( my daughter is very smart and enjoys learning!)

the teachers are all very experienced mechanchos, who totally 'get' today's generation. (the staff is very yeshivish but extremely open-minded) and the students are a big mix of yeshivish/less yeshivish

My daughter is entering 8th grade so I need to start thinking of high schools too. I’ve also heard good things about Bais Kaila. I know there’s peer pressure everywhere but compared to the other schools, how does it compare? Are the girls the types who buy tons of clothing and shoes? Or are they from more simple/hardworking families that think before each purchase? Thank you.

There's all kinds. It's really a mixed crowd!(dare I say? Just like everywhere else in life! Wink )
Peer pressure depends mostly on your daughter's personality!

Thanks. My DD unfortunately takes peer pressure very seriously Sad I would love to find her a high school with girls of more simpler tastes if one exists!!!

My girls went to BK. In terms of the peer pressure, it wasn't about people of simpler tastes. It was about being free to express your own personality and have confidence in yourself. Neither of my girls were into having expensive designer briefcases, for instance. However, they did have fun choosing briefcases that reflected their tastes and needs, no label necessary.

I think a little peer pressure and learning to deal with it is not a bad thing for a teen, BTW. As long as it's not out of control.

In terms of academics, I found that 9th grade was pretty easy for my DD, but it kind of ramped up in 10th grade. Plus the school has a voluntary program that those who want more academics can take advantage of - there are plenty of extras.
