Lakewood Girls HS limited enrollment to elementary division only…is this the beginning or the end?

with one comment

Semgirl had the story and go ahead and read it there.

We feel torn between the following

1) The HS is now only accepting the girls they accepted in elementary…and we believe that if the elementary girls aren’t good enough for the HS they won’t be accepted due to various reasonings that could happen (grades or ‘failing’ entrance exam)

2) If this does work it could force all the other elementary schools to finally open HS divisions or for more HS to be opened up because the Rabbis will finally open their collective eyes and get the financing to get it done.

It all comes down to your position in the community and the money that is in the community. Lakewood needs to figure out if it can actually put the Torah first instead of yichus/money.
