What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?


Academic. This stereotype is partially accurate.


There is a stereotype of a Stern girl at Yeshiva. This is not necessarily a bad thing and it doesn't fit everyone in the school. Stern girls are, for the most part, the nicest and most helpful people I've ever met. I don't fit the stereotype because I didn't grow up religious. You can also spot a Stern girl anywhere...something about the skirt she's wearing will tell you. The general stereotype of a Stern girl is that they "grew up under a rock." This is mildly can find out by person by talking to them and you'll know. This is not to say that it is true to everyone!
