Look for an old Raleigh 3 speed and have it serviced. have all the bearings regressed, get a blue can 3 N 1 oil 20w a few drops in the rear hub once every 2 weeks and it is near maintenance free. oh tipple heavy tubes hold air longer than thin ones rino dillow liners to keep flats away. most will have a nice rack on the back for books.

I would not want a bike with derailleurs, they are sure to get knocked out of adjustment or bent.
A 3 speed makes perfect sense. oil the chain 2x a year.

It will last her all 4 years and have a lower chance of being stolen.
