(I assume you mean creating a thread to post about sems and not necessitate hijacking anyone else’s thread. So here goes:)
How come there are all these threads about seminaries and none about high schools? I would think the choice of 4 years’ education is more important than one years’.October 21, 2015 5:47 pm at 5:47 pm #1106268☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
The parents have a lot more input into high school than seminary, and 8th graders have less internet access than 12th graders.October 21, 2015 5:49 pm at 5:49 pm #1106269Little FroggieParticipant

There are also a lot less choices for high schools in most cities and towns than there are Seminaries and Yeshivos in Israel… You go from having 3 or 4 choices (maybe) to having to deal with 20 or 30 choices – and because they’re an ocean away, it’s difficult to get clear exactly what each of the schools “are”October 21, 2015 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #1106272👑RebYidd23Participant

A. Manhattan HS for girls or Prospect
B. Depends on what kind of guy you’re looking for in a few years, which is highly influenced by your HS
C. Bais Yaakov of Boro Park, where there is more fun and less academics than most schools.
I assume you’re not looking for a chassidish one, in which case A. is popularly considered Bais Bracha, B is B or Tomer Devora, and C is BYBP or Vien.
