I’m switching my girls out of a school near monsey I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the above schools?December 24, 2014 11:35 pm at 11:35 pm #1063185STYLE123Member
Ateres- i more to the left
YSV- is a great skl and is basicly a mixing pot the have all types and the classes divieded by types ex a more yeshivish class, a more modorn class. But the princpal are amazing and even though its so big it dosent feel like it.
Bas Mikroh- its like YSV yet about 20% ofBas Mikroh would fit into Bais Rochel so its a mix yet they wont have some modorn kids that YSV will haveDecember 25, 2014 1:26 am at 1:26 am #1063186RochelHMember
YSV is large school with 4 classes per grade, with a nice mix of all types from very frum to very modern. In the younger grades they separate the classes by type, but the older grades are mixed by academic level.There are separate principals for the different divisions. For some children a large school is important so they can learn to fend for themselves.
If you are very liberal then Ateres BY is for you.
BY Chofetz Chaim is a great school with a frum balanced crowd of Bnei Torah. it is not the place for a parent that believes school is just to teach baking & sewing, they are a very education & Hashkafa oriented school, where there is emphasis on dikduk hamitzvos & Yiras Shomayim. At the same time there is a campy fun & happy ruach. The principal has a kesher with every child & parent, & will do whatever it takes to make each child succeed.
Bas Mikroh is a small & warm school, A big percent are girls from sephardi families, they have just gotten a new menahel and has begun trying to revamp their school and attract the young yeshivish crowd. It has a very relaxed & laid back atmosphere.
Bais Rochel you didn’t mention, probably because it is mostly chasidish.

Bas Mikrah does not have a lot of Sephardic girls! They’ve been primarily yeshivish for as long as I can remember.
They have a few girls from each “type” in every class.December 28, 2014 5:32 am at 5:32 am #1063189VogueMember
I met a few girls who went to ateres a few years ago. They were in seminary at the time. They were at Machon Raaya and some seminaries farther to the left than that.December 28, 2014 4:10 pm at 4:10 pm #1063190writersoulParticipant
What exactly does “more liberal” mean when describing a school? I confess to being really confused, especially as we’re discussing Ateres.
I’ve already stated my views on Ateres in another thread (http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/monsey-girls-high-schools#post-548616), and while there I was talking about the high school, I’d say kal vechomer about the elementary school. I just really want to know what a “liberal” school is. (If it helps, I happen to know that Ateres’s mock presidential elections heavily skew Republican… 🙂 )February 5, 2015 3:25 am at 3:25 am #1063191
Thank you! Would Bycc accept a father with colored shirts?February 5, 2015 8:04 am at 8:04 am #1063192takahmamashParticipant
Thank you! Would Bycc accept a father with colored shirts?
It’s a girls’ school! They won’t accept a father no matter what kind of shirt he’s wearing!February 6, 2015 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm #1063194
Ok let me rephrase that, would my daughter get in if my husband wears colored shirts?February 6, 2015 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #1063195showjoeParticipant
on shabbos, or during the week?February 8, 2015 4:58 am at 4:58 am #1063196
During the week . Also do they allow a tv?February 8, 2015 6:16 am at 6:16 am #1063197
Absolutely not!February 8, 2015 12:57 pm at 12:57 pm #1063198
Ok would YSV? That’s the next choiceFebruary 8, 2015 1:39 pm at 1:39 pm #1063199
Yes. I think your daughter would love it there.February 8, 2015 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #1063200

Hatzlachah!February 8, 2015 7:20 pm at 7:20 pm #1063202writersoulParticipant
The schools have no clue who has a TV. That said, YDV and Ateres probably are better choices for people with TVs. Even so, I’m sure that you can get away with it in BYCC.
Colored shirts- you’re fine in any of those schools.February 9, 2015 3:32 pm at 3:32 pm #1063203
Just got a call back from bycc they said we can come for an interview tomorrow…February 9, 2015 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #1063204
You must be so nervous… Wishing you much hatzlachah!February 9, 2015 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #1063205benignumanParticipant
Colored shirts are definitely not a problem in BYCC (or anywhere else for that matter). You have to sign that you do not have a TV to send your child there.February 10, 2015 2:26 am at 2:26 am #1063206
Does anyone have one there?February 10, 2015 2:28 am at 2:28 am #1063207
Bas Mikroh won’t either allow it?February 10, 2015 4:59 am at 4:59 am #1063208nachasMember
I send to BYCC. What would you like to know?February 10, 2015 1:30 pm at 1:30 pm #1063209
Wow! Do ppl have tvs? What type of crowd? Principle nice?February 11, 2015 12:23 am at 12:23 am #1063212
Went to the interview today seems like a nice school extremely nice principle!February 11, 2015 4:14 am at 4:14 am #1063213basmelechParticipant
My Yeshivish granddaughters go to Bas Mikroh. I think they’re happy there. YSV may have Yeshivish crowd too, but, I only know more modern kids who go there.February 11, 2015 10:06 pm at 10:06 pm #1063214
Bad mikroh is not rly a question. I don’t think we would fit there, thank you tho!February 12, 2015 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm #1063215
Got into YSVMarch 6, 2015 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #1063216
Woot! Woot! We’re sending to Ateres!March 6, 2015 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #1063217

Wishing you much continued hatzlachah.
