You can always get a couple of bulldog clips onto a long skirt to hold it out of the way. Is she comfortable flashing to world occasionally? Because on a bike, in a skirt, she'll have to be - or, wear netball shorts under her skirt.
Is there no pants option for girls? Cruel. (I did go to a state high school in the north-east, our best winter sport was de-icing the classroom locks so we could get in.)
Where will she put panniers or a basket? Will they fit in her locker? My current basket wouldn't have fitted into my high school locker. Plus, it's a bit crap on fitting a lot of textbooks.
Papillionaire do superindie custom bikes. They're cute.
I'd say, if your daughter is serious about it, take her to a couple of bike shops, and let her tell you what she likes. Then you can work on finding an option that suits your budget. Does she want a step through (I can't tell from your post)? There are lots of cool girls riding indie flatbar Jellybean kinda bikes, and that might suit her better than a step-through.
