Any POVs to share? Specifically Breuers, Ramapo, Ateres…
Thanks!December 28, 2011 4:14 am at 4:14 am #1058296HLMMember
Hey ramapo is great. It’s small, usually 1 class per grade. They do not have a remedial but if a test is too hard for you, there is english or modified versions and the teachers work with you. Concert is also great, you make a lot of friends during practise.December 3, 2014 2:59 pm at 2:59 pm #1058298
Ateres is good. I went to their graduation one night because I was bored.December 3, 2014 3:18 pm at 3:18 pm #1058299RepublicanDemocratParticipant
HLM – You better “practise”.December 3, 2014 11:17 pm at 11:17 pm #1058300
Ateres is really modern…December 3, 2014 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm #1058301STYLE123Member
Ateres is more to the left yet its a very warm school and the principal is amazing
Rampoo is an amazing school the teachers are very sweet and always want the best of you the principals are also very sweet and open and you end up being friends with the whole school. They also accept all types which is amazing
Breuers i dont know enough to give you info. not good not bad
good Luck with decidingDecember 4, 2014 12:39 am at 12:39 am #1058302
Bais Yaakov of Monsey is so great! One of my closest friends is camp is in that school, and she loves it. The staff is vey warm and caring, and the mechanecheses are always available for anything, 24/7. The principal (Rebbetzin Paretzky, I believe) is a legend- no other way to describe her.
There is every type in BYM… I would recommend it to anyone!
Btw STYLE, the OP created this thread 2 years ago, dunno if you realized.December 4, 2014 1:08 am at 1:08 am #1058303
Bais Ruchel is good I heard…December 4, 2014 1:31 am at 1:31 am #1058304
Bais Rochel is very frum- more chassidish than yeshivish these days.
I believe they teach in Yiddish, in fact.December 4, 2014 1:47 am at 1:47 am #1058305
I know there’s one on saddle river drive (I’m talking about bais ruchel satmar btw)December 4, 2014 2:52 am at 2:52 am #1058306
Well for future reference, schools of a specific chassidus are generally known by the name of the chassidus. So Bais Ruchel is known as the girls’ Satmar school.

Ok i assumed everyone knew the name of satmar girls school is bais ruchelDecember 4, 2014 3:47 am at 3:47 am #1058308Climbing mountainsMember
FYI Bais Rochel in Monsey is not affiliated to Satmar or any other chassidus. In fact, there is no Bais Ruchel D’Satmar in Monsey. It used to be a real mix, now it’s leaning toward more haimish.December 4, 2014 4:16 am at 4:16 am #1058309
There is we’re talking about two different thingsDecember 4, 2014 4:41 am at 4:41 am #1058310

“are you a male?”
“if so why are u going to girls graduations for fun”
That is not a logical continuation of the first point.December 4, 2014 4:56 am at 4:56 am #1058314
Um. The fact that the hanhala and students are MO?
🙂December 4, 2014 4:59 am at 4:59 am #1058315
Eek- iT iZ a perfectly logIcal continuation of the first Point. the first Point was setting up for mY shtuch that came after.December 4, 2014 5:05 am at 5:05 am #1058316👑RebYidd23Participant
Did you just tell us your name?December 4, 2014 5:16 am at 5:16 am #1058318
There was no shtuch that came after. Only a question.
Ry- Who are you adressing?December 4, 2014 5:23 am at 5:23 am #1058319
Letakein- how do u know this? And what makes them MO?December 4, 2014 12:54 pm at 12:54 pm #1058320
I know this because two of my friends are in that school…
What makes them modern? The things they wear, talk about, and do.
Why are you so into this?December 4, 2014 2:19 pm at 2:19 pm #1058321

I made this thread almost three years ago on behalf of one of my sisters who was looking into high schools. By now, my next sister after that is already attending one of the three schools mentioned… just funny how things come around :).
Letakein Girl: I’d disagree that the students and the hanhalah of the school are modern (or, really, to be more accurate and use your phrase, MO). The principal started it as a Bais Yaakov, and with the exception of not espousing things like kollel, I believe that’s the way it’s basically stayed as far as the teaching and educational hashkafa. Regardless of its name, I would still not call it a Bais Yaakov in any way- but the school itself doesn’t have a specifically modern hashkafa (Zionism, etc). It’s just not really one thing or another and the way the school is in general (very chilled, etc) just attracts girls who are less Bais Yaakov in hashkafa. It is easily the most modern (on the very limited scale of Monsey girls high schools…) of the girls high schools in the area, as the only school with no uniform but rather a dress code, but it is not hashkafically modern in the way an actual MO school would be. Yes, there will be more of what you say, but that’s not davka the school. It’s the girls (of whom some are my friends, incidentally).
To be fair, though, sometimes schools do follow in the path of the girls, and perhaps Ateres does that sometimes. But it’s still not accurate to say that the school is hashkafically MO.December 4, 2014 10:06 pm at 10:06 pm #1058323LovelymeMember
By monsey is an amazing school!!! Every type goes there! Try ramapo also it’s veeerry academic. Ateres is if you want more to left broyers is more chasidish/coolDecember 4, 2014 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm #1058324
Okay then, I stand corrected.
By the way, writersoul, when I saw that you had written a long paragraph in response to little me, I felt so awesome. 🙂February 6, 2015 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #1058325
Lovely, who are you trying to fool?
How is it that you know all about Mosney’s high schools, and yet nothing about the elementary schools?February 8, 2015 5:04 am at 5:04 am #1058326LovelymeMember
Letakein girl: not that I havta explain myself but I actually had a friend that moved to monsey for 12th grade she told me.
