Hi, I'm moving to Jackson from Brooklyn and I am trying to get my girls into a lakewood school. I heard that it's best to apply to a newer school because older schools dont have slots. Problem is that the new schools only have one 8th grade class if any and I have twins that will be going into 8th. Any advice on newer schools that have at least two parallel 8 grades? (I think it's best for twins to be in separate classes) btw, we are yeshivish but my husband is working

If your daughter will be in 6th next year, you can try Nachlas. They recently split that one class into two , so there are two smaller classes.

Bnos esther malka does not have 2 eighth grades this year. I don't think for next year either.
For sure from 5th and down this year is 2 classes. Primary has 3.

Yes high school classes can be rly big...tho depending on the schools...but elementary tend to be more like 25 approx so 20 is pretty regular.

My daughter is in Nachlas and I never heard of a class there with 20 kids, except, like you're saying, the 6th grade which was the first class they had. Originally was tiny and has swelled very big so had to be split in half.

20 is not normal for Nachlas and I'm sure they will be accepting applications for next year for that grade. Typical at Nachlas is around 27 give or take. Kindergarten has been a hard cap of 25 the last few years .

Most elementary are closer to 28. They want to be at 22-25. But at the last minute the vaad sticks in kids or kids with no schools. It’s often a fight to keep at 28. (When my dd entered primary the principal said it will not be more then 25. First day there was 28. ) And every year new girls are added as ppl move to town. My sons classes grow to 30 kids by 2nd grade

Bais faiga is one of the best at keeping at 25. But newer schools aren’t as good as fighting snd have a hard time not taking in kids that have no place last minute.
