Did she get in? Where did you end up? I feel like kids move around a lot so maybe you can try again.
yes she got in, ended up at HM
Why aren’t you happy at HM?
I just see B might have been a better fit. she's nerdy and at B I didn't get a sense that girls cared about looks/clothes/social media like I see at HM
@Anonymous What grade?
Yeah, nerdy is fairly cool at Brearley.
@Anonymous Apply out for high school?
Brearley is overhauling its curriculum I would carefully investigate before you regret too much!
Overhaul is a bit of an overstatement, no? Do you have a DD there?
@Anonymous No, it's not an overstatement.
@Anonymous "Overhaul" is an overstatement. Adding texts and putting lessons into better context is not an overhaul. But if you'd be happier having your DDs elsewhere, you should make the move.
What is the overhaul/change?
Bringing in diversity consultants to make the curriculum, particularly English and history, more "diverse".
@Anonymous Why would a parent regret that?
I suppose some people might not want western civilization relegated to an afterthought.
HM is a huge school with all types of kids. Yes some of them are the wealthy, high profile and fashionable type but there are also kids who are low key and happy. Plus the school has tons of fresh air, new facilities, and a very nice campus.
NP - Is it a pressure cooker like some people say? DH went there, but things can change over the years.
@Anonymous NP, DF's DC went there, total pressure cooker, although a super bright kid who worked hard. Parents had real regret about sending DC there.
You're lucky you didn't get stuck at Dalton.
