What type is the school? How is the parent body? Looking for honest information. Also, does anyone have the number to request an application?

I'm assuming most people don't go with an up hat and short jacket. To me it seems like it's more chassidish than that. It's definitely a right wing chassidish school. Nothing close to Vien in WB or BP. That's my assessment from the what I see around.

I would love to hear an actual ratio. Not because I don't believe you but because I would love to have an accurate idea about the school.

I know many people that send there. Some up hats short jackets, though most are long jackets & biber hats. No chilled/modern chassidish.
Beware that it is very hard to get in and they may ask got a lot of money.

Vein Williamsburg and Vein BP are not a comparison, by far not. And Vein Williamsburg is a typical Williamsburg school, Vein Monsey is way more neutral the Vein Williamsburg.
OP, if you live in Monsey, I'd compare Vien to Sanz and Bais Rochel.

Sanz and Bais Rochel don't allow driving either. Bais Rochel will only take a driving mother is she comes from a family that drives and the family meets their standards.

Lots of covered shaitlech in Vien girls school. A lot more right wing than Bais Rochel... The school is a lot more chasidish than the cheder.

Bais Rochel doesn't require beige tights, and still has lots of 'old time Monsey families' that aren't necessarily chasidish and are looking for the litvish havara. Vien in Monsey compares to the Bobov schools in Monsey hashkafa wise (though I believe it isn't run as professionally).

It's not an official rule there (the same way chasidish schools mention it on their application). But it's a given that if you are a 'chilled out' couple compared to the families you come from and that's why you're driving, then they probably won't accept you.

Bais Rochel will not accept someone that moved from Williamsburg and got a driver's license. They will not accept someone that's a Belz, Viznitz, Pupa..... graduate and is driving. They will not accept someone that wants to send there just because they want to drive. They will not accept someone that's "chilled" and drives. The will accept if one comes from an old time simple Monsey family.

Plenty Vien Monsey mothers don't wear beige, I wonder if the school will require it when they get to high school. Bobov parent body is a bit more RW than Vien.

I send to Vien. If you'd know anything about the hanhalla, you'd know it's not a question. HS girls will definitely be required to wear beige.

No idea but my husband and all his friends who send all have short jackets. To clarify this is the boys school and not the girls school (which I understand is a lot more chassidish)

This is about the girls school, not the boys cheder. The school and cheder are by far NOT a comparison. The cheder is modern according to the school. The school is way more chassidish than the cheder.

And even in the cheder, there's a huge difference between the older classes and the younger ones. For example, my son's class has all boys with down peyos. My nephew's class who graduated 8 years ago was at least half the class with short peyos behind the ears.
