My dd is currently in 8 grade at bybp. She has been rejected to few high schools including byhs. Finally she got into machon and now they aren’t opening. We need a new school for her. Academically she does pretty good (80 average). What are my options?

I just heard today Machon is closing down. Even if Bais Yakkov initially said no, keep calling them.
Loads of Luck!

Keep on top of BYHS. Approach both Mrs. Gartner and Rabbi Frank separately and have them help you out.

What is Mrs Gartner saying? I'm sure, she'll be helping as there should be a few girls from BYBP who were supposed to go to Machon.
Are you in touch with Suri Rubin?

Op, I’ve been in your shoes with two daughters.
Mrs. Gartner takes her job very seriously and you can rest assured that she works tirelessly to get every graduate into a HS.
She has a lot of experience and will ensure that every single girl is placed into a high school.
Would you consider Prospect?

You said you finally got into Machon.
Did you have a hard time getting accepted there?

She’ll never get into Mesilas. (Unless you have a massive amount of pull.)

A typical BY girl would not want to go to Vien.

I think it might be helpful if you shared your background and what type of school you are looking for (and possibly why she had such s hard time getting accepted anywhere before getting into Machon). These suggestions are for schools that vary widely in the type of girls at their schools (I.e. you won’t find the same type of girl at Prospect and at Vien).

I guess she didnt share what she’s looking for. I know girls who went from bybp to vien and were really happy with the smaller size school and caring. But youre right- everyone needs something else
