Boarding schools for troubled teens
We are looking for a boarding school in the Iowa area. Our 14 year old son has failed 8th grade twice. Hes proven to be very intelligent but defies anyone who tries to guide him.
Its not easy researching boarding schools but Iv yet to hear a horror story. Most school web sites look good. And claim great success rates. We are looking at Midwest Academy http://www.familyfirstaid.org/midwest.html but the tuition is around $45000 a year. Twice as much as college tuition and about as much as I make in one year.
Can anyone direct me to a forum or agency who reviews, rates or has true unbiased testimonials about boarding schools?
