We are looking to move to inwood too! My impression of the community is that it is a very warm community. Twenties and low to mid thirties age range. Its far rockaway overgrowth so its mainly frum solid working crowd. Ppl send to the area schools. Definitely bby tag darchei siach and yeshiva ketama could be other more to the left schools too.....

Thanks for the responses!
I'm wondering if anyone that lived in Brooklyn and moved to Inwood, can compare the schools mentioned to the schools in flatbush, Brooklyn.
I don't know what type these schools are, so this might help me get a better idea!

Thanks!

It depends a lot what schools in Flatbush you are talking about.

The schools used by people in Inwood are a mix of Far Rockaway/Bayswater and 5 Towns families. In general you will find a bigger mix in those schools than in Brooklyn schools because there are fewer options than in Brooklyn.

Bnos Bais Yaakov (BBY), TAG and Bais Yaakov Ateres Miriam are all BY schools, but they have a range of different types of families. The most yeshivish tend to send to BBY, but even there there is quite a range. For example, some BBY families send to YOB for high school, but many BBY families would find YOB much too yeshivish for them.

Siach Yitzchok is the boys' school that is the most to the right, and perhaps similar to schools in Flatbush. Darchei is a huge school with many types of people and basically a yeshivish hashkafah. Yeshiva Ketana of Long Island is a smaller that I don't know much about. South Shore attracts somewhat more modern families but the hanhala and rabbeim are yeshivish.

Do you have specific questions about the schools?

Does anyone know what the situation is with the schools, spacewise? Like is it hard to get into BBY and Darchei because of lack of space?

Were looking there also. You can find a house with four bedrooms and a yard starting around 500k but at that price its going to need some work.
