I had this one year. I needed to change and noone wanted to accept. She ended up home till after Succoss, until they finally did.

Call them every day. Twice. Call whomever u know in that school to intervene. Keep going and dont stop....

This makes me so angry. The system is definitely broken.

Rabbonim don't want to give a heter for BC.
There's pressure to have as many kids as Hashem can give you.

And yet no one cares about educating these kids once they're born. Mad

I am so sorry OP. Davening that everything works out for the best. Hug

If children are being left out of schools, then the schools DESERVE to be bashed. Punch

OP, ask if you want. I'm sure that someone here can help you.

Delete.

Everyone who claims they can help, tried already. They are pushing us to send to a mixed school. I’m so angry! I don’t want to send to a mixed very modern school!! We applied on time and did everything right.

Thanks all.

Op, I just want to tell you that we went through this last year and it’s hell on earth. We ended up sending to the school that was on the NO list. I didn’t feel we fit in there at all. But they accepted us so warmly which felt wonderful after all the horrible rejections and the kids had an awesome year! I’m not the only one with this experience (and no, I’m not in Lakewood.) so I ask you, are you considering all the “second best” or “tenth best” options? Or you just don’t have a school from your “first choices” and don’t want to budge from there? Sometimes we have to go where Hashem leads us whether it’s what we prefer or not.

How old is your child? If the child is still very young, can you send for the year while you work to get into a school more to your hashkafa?

He’s applying for primary school but once you have a school its very hard to switch schools.

Have you reached out to the chabad school there? I know it's in Stamford Hill but many commute to there. They would most likely be able to help you out and aren't a mixed school.

As I said before, take your second and third best options. Chabad school is better than mixed.
