Anyone know when the answers are going out? My daughter is going nuts


I heard that letters are not going out yet. But (some?) schools have communicated with girls who were not accepted to any of their choices, so that the parents can get involved with any effort/pull they may have.

I heard but have no way of verifying that the entrance exams are used to help "track" girls once they're already in high school.

Maybe it gives the high schools a ballpark guess at a girl's academic level.

HOWEVER.

I personally performed very poorly on my hs entrance exam - it was on material that was on a higher academic level than my elementary school.

I went to a very academic high school (B"H they accepted me anyway, pull, whatever) and I was an A student. I discussed this once with my hs principal, who agreed that the entrance examisn't a good indicator of how a student will perform. It just tells what she's at coming in.


I also found that some of my dds had teacher in 8th grade who prepared them very well for the entrance exam. They really taught them what they need to know for it. Other teachers didn't seem to care much. And one of my dds had as her 8th grade Hebrew teacher someone who was new to Lakewood and she completely ignored the entire concept.

So I'm not sure why they bother. You get a much better idea of where a girl is holding by speaking to her teachers. Which they do.

Someone just told me there are still 100 girls who are not accepted to any schools. And there really isn't enough space for them all.


It seams like every year there are 100 girls not accepted. Every year their is more girls coming out of 8th grade(not counting the ones that move in) yet every year there is 100 seats short. Is this happening because they prepare for last year?

What will be next year when a few newer schools that only go up to 7th grade now will have their first 8th grade graduating class?

I was told the same. If you didn't get a call than you need to be patient until letters come out.

This year Bnos Esther Malka and Bnos Hadassah have their first 8th grade classes. How many new high schools have opened to accommodate them? Moreshes and Meoros are not that far behind, and perhaps other schools.

My dds teacher said we are getting the letter by Monday. So when I saw the letter from the vaad my heart dropped. I was sure they were letting us know she wasn't accepted anywhere.

It's crazy that we have to have this much anxiety over this. I'm so nervous for my dd if she doesn't get accepted anywhere.

True. I guess her teacher got confused. Or someone is confused.

Why is Mrs. Bernfeld school not opening?

If she lost her funding I understand

If the Vaad said not to open that does not make sense because it is not as if schools are fighting over students,and there is a shortage of students to send to a new school.
