My friend was suspended from the high school because one of the administration's "spies" in the community saw her at Tov Pizza with her brother (who happens to not look like her because he's adopted) and thought she was hanging out with boys. They didn't even ask her about it. She was notified by phone call over the weekend. Needless to say, she dropped out.

I love Bais Yaakov School for Girls because I blossomed as a person there. The staff was so caring and dependable. I really felt they were there for me in all regards: emotionally, spiritually, physically. They did everything they could to make sure us students felt we had a place and we could succeed. We had many, many extracurricular activities to offer us opportunities to succeed in areas other than pure academics. There also was a sense of acceptance even though we all came from very different backgrounds and we did not all have the same standards as our teachers. There was never a feeling of being judged. It was a feeling of understanding and helping us work through our issues. This unconditional acceptance is something that has made a lasting impression on me. I am forever greatful.

Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
