Hello All,

Looking for some insight on the Bryn Mawr section of Yonkers? How is the area?
Also we're going to enter our son in school in January , how does the school system work? Is it a lottery? Or Zoned school system? the closest school I see is School 5 which doesn't seem very good based on reviews but the next closest school is Patricia Dicharo? I think.
Thank you! All for the information in advance

Have you talked with your neighbors they would really be a very helpful insight to what you are asking. Here is the districts page on school choice https://www.yonkerspublicschools.org/domain/81

We live 2 blocks away from DiChario (very much in the school zone.) We spent the last year fighting to place our daughter in the school as it is considered a lottery school and one of the best in yonkers. There is no transparency in the yonkers public school system (according to them it is a computerized system-yet many of the board of ed workers children or teachers children get in first) It was a very rough year of her attending another school. If you don't live anywhere near the school you'd like her to attend and aren't up for a very time consuming and a frustrating exchange..don't bother moving to yonkers.
