Yes we didn’t get accepted. Not sure if it was the area we live in or the school but definitely a strange experience because we were told there was room. Us and several of my daughter’s classmates.

Same Sad and it left such a horrible taste on my mouth. My daughter will be in primary next year and I did not realize how nasty some people can be (I did call to see why we were rejected)

I gave you some genuine hugs....yikes. That is such a not-good feeling.

B"H there are plenty of wonderful daycamps in Lakewood that accept from all schools, and the diversity is such a good thing. After we moved, it's how my DD got to know girls in the neighborhood from other schools.

They weren’t accepting kids from Bnos Esther Malka. Can I ask what school you sent to?

It's to keep a variety. So they have a quota. Not to be exclusive.

I had the same experience as a nachlas parent. ‘No room’. I think they were overloaded with nachlas girls last year and they are trying to fix the problem. I know someone who sent to Renana from Nachlas last year and is not sending back because her daughter was in camp with her whole class last year.

It’s because Mrs Fischer was a teacher in Nachlas last year lol. Her whole class basically went to Renana with their siblings and then some friends followed those other siblings…

I applied with a few neighbors. Only the Bnos Esther Malka kids got rejected.
When I tried calling they literally told me straight out on the phone that they reject certain schools automatically. Which is just crazy.
I know someone sending to Bnos Esther Malka next year for Primary and she got accepted within a few hours because she didn’t write on the application that she’s sending there.
Their system of acceptance is just messed up.

My daughter is in bnos esther malka and I feel like nachlas is probably a little more to the right.
