Bnos Yakov, Lev BY, Masores, Prospect are all Bais Yakov types of schools.
All Flatbush girls schools are Bais Yakov types, except Shulamith, Beer Hagolah, Nefesh, and Shalsheles in Boro Park.
Maybe if you tell us what exactly is bothering her in her BY school, we can brainstorm together. It's one thing if it's the whole ideology, and another - if it's teachers, hanhalah, or girls.

Yes, wondering this as well -- what is the main issue? It would really help to guide our responses.
One note on the above: although PPY does identify as BY, it doesn't actually have the same flavor or atmosphere -- in a good way. It's more open and more mixed.

I haven't been in Brooklyn in a while. Do Yeshiva of Flatbush and Magen David no longer exist? They're obviously very not BY but I have no clue what OP's daughter needs right now (although MD is in Bensonhurst). Also what about Central? (YU high school for girls).

Yeshiva of Flatbush is Modern Orthodox and Co-ed, which puts it in a completely different category. Magen David is Sephardic; while some Ashkenaz kids have attended, it's not culturally suited to Ashkenaz kids.
Central is not in Brooklyn, and it's also considered MO.
I think if OP's daughter is in Lev Bais Yaakov or BYDM and needs a change, those are a much bigger jump than moving to PPY, or a much looser place like Shalsheles or Nefesh. Though it's unclear what the problem is, so I really couldn't say.

The school she’s in is considered by type. When I say Bais yaakovy I meant more like byhs or yob type. The problem with her school is that many faculty members put down the girls as a whole. This yr alone 10 girls left one of the grades. Not because they lived but because the teachers and principal were so degrading towards the girls they couldn’t take it anymore. I do believe the way the school is will definitely become more public throughout this year.

That's awful! I can understand why she'd want to leave. Definitely consider PPY, the hanhala is amazing and they really build up the girls.

The hanhalah at Bnos Yaakov is really warm. I've never seen a school where the staff love the girls as much. People move out of Brooklyn all the time so 2 or 3 girls leave each year like in the other Brooklyn schools, but there have also been new girls joining.
My daughter's grade has a high level of materialism, but I hear that is true of the other Flatbush schools as well (other grades in her school have not been like this).

I had one kid in BYA HS. I wasn't overly impressed. The girls are a nice crowd, but unless things have changed in the last year or so, there was little leadership from the top and a lot of older burnt out teachers. Probably not a damaging environment, but certainly not a nurturing one.

As a BYA graduate, I don't think OP's daughter should go there. I went to BYA, and while I was fine there and do well, based on how OP is describing her dd's situation it's probably not a good fit.

Interesting that you're calling these schools bais Yaakovy. Yeshivish is the word usually used Wink .
If you want less yeshivish than byhs/yob then that's basically all the others listed here. The question is what type would be a good fit? Also, is your daughter academic?

So the hs staff is judgy, harsh, nasty & yuck. Thats not bais yakov-y. Thats a bad administration.

Mesilas is very bais yakov-y but very warm and nurturing and afaik none of that turn off to yiddishkeit stuff.

Prospect is the only least bais yakov-y not coed girls hs in brooklyn.

Tbf, lots of brooklyn girls commute to 5t, manhattan, queens Or dorm.

Nefesh High School is a possible choice. It is a small school for girls from Frum families with more warmth and more space. The staff is very understanding of different frum cultural backgrounds. Questions are encouraged enabling each girl to grow at her own pace
