Just saying, Bais Yaakov of Monsey is an amazing school. Feel free to ask me any questions- my daughter's currently attending school at BYM so I have firsthand info...

Some of the schools have transportation from monsey to Passaic. I know Machon Ora does.

Why would you commute to Passaic when there are so many similar options in Monsey? Even for Machon Ora, your daughter would miss out on friends and social occasions that would happen in Passaic. Although the girls who go to Machon Ora from Monsey do like it.

OP, I don't have an answer to your question, but I went from Monsey to Elizabeth daily for high school and it was great. I had my Monsey friends PLUS my school friends and had a bustling social life. Just to counteract the naysayers.

To the naysayers-
I am not OP but also making a new out-of-town school choice for my kids which I came to after much thought and waying the decision on both sides - fully aware of the remifications and pros and cons.
The op is not asking for advice about the decision but a busing question. Please refrain from offering unsolicited advice.
(I was going to sign with my screen name but mentioning the change in schools for my child I will be amother .)

One of the naysayers here -- if it were so common for people to commute their kids from Monsey to Passaic, she wouldn't even be asking the question. She'd know about the busing situation from the hundreds of kids that get bused. Like the Monsey - Elizabeth school.

As for the Elizabeth girl - people would only choose Elizabth b/c hashkafically there is nothing in Monsey even close to what you would get in Elizabeth. You didn't really have much of a choice if you wanted that option. Monsey schools and Passaic schools are not that far off.

I also heard from a girl that went to the Elizabeth school that the girls in Elizabeth questioned why she didn't just find a school in Monsey. Its not like its out of town.

Many schools are awesome.

But there are many reason to send to out of area like that....social, better programs, etc.

There's a van of girls coming from Monsey to Machon Ora every day (although one Monsey girl just switched out of Machon Ora to a Monsey school).

I don't think any girls from Monsey commute to BY of Passaic.
