It's the most similar to BYBP. There aren't really schools in Monsey that are similar to BYBP. It's either all chassidish or all yeshivish/litvish/modern. There's no middle way.


That's basically all I'm hearing. I do have extended family in Monsey, but some are a lot more modern (Asher) and some are very chassidish (I think viznitz or belz).
The recommendations I got from them is Kesser Bais Yakov, Ateres, and Bnos Derech Yisrael. Someone also mentioned Bais Rachel. They couldn't differentiate the differences as they're from very different circles than me.

Bais Rochel isn't really to compare to BYBP. It's a regular chassidish school. Bnos Derech Yisroel is basically neutral chassidish, many families that don't fit the mold of regular chassidish schools.
Kesser Bais Yakov is also a good choice. It's more chassidish than Bnos Leah.

I'm bringing up this thread again even if I know there probably isn't any new options I don't know about.
My daughter will be starting kindergarten soon in BJBP. (Fingers crossed schools open!). My husband has been looking at houses very seriously in Monsey, but we won't take out a mortgage until we have our kid in a school. We're realistic and okay with waiting another year, as we know doing proper research and getting into a school takes time. Which schools can we even try?
About us: My family identifies as heimish, leaning chassidish. I went to Bais Yakov of Boro Park, and then BYHS and loved both, would definitely choose the same option for my daughter if there was.
My husband grew up OOT, his father put on a shtreimal and so did he, but his mother wasn't chassidish so he didn't grow up very chassidish, although he does connect with that lifestyle and would love to bring up his kids with some appreciation for it.
We currently don't have internet at home, don't have TV. I wear knee length skirts, shaitels just past my shoulder, etc. My husband works but has a set daily chavrusa, and davens 3 times a day with minyan, and won't travel away for shabbos without a minyan. We keep cholov Yisrael. We have Bernstein Bears and Uncle Moishy DVD's at home, to be used on vacation days or occasions. I'd love something like the mix of BJBP, what would be closest to it, and what would be my next options?
Thank you all.


Bais yaakov chofetz Chaim sounds right they are accepting ehrliche heimish families at the moment

Why would you consider Bais Rochel a regular chassidish school. Parent body is mixed as well as staff

They do not accept chassidish/shtreimel wearing families.

By now it's basically a regular chassidish school. It used to be more of a mix. It's not like BYBP.
Every school staff is a mix.

Bnos Derech Yisroel would be the equivalent to Munkatch in BP.

Bais Rochel is not really chassidish- Very heimish/frum (compared it to Bais Bracha in BP maybe?)

Bais Rochel isn't like BYBP but the way you described it in comparison to BDY is inaccurate. BDY is a regular chassidish neutral school. BR accepts chassidish parents but the school itself isn't chassidish. Both allow mothers to drive, but the mothers of BR tend to be BR graduates while the mothers of BDY tend to be graduates of Viznitz, Satmar, Skver, etc. who don't want to send and don't belong in any of their alma maters.

Yes , this is an accurate equivalent. BR is Stolin-y, frum, heimish type.
