This is a Montana public school located on a large parcel of land own by a non-profit group. The program has great potential, but suffers from the frequent turnover of the student population due to most of them coming from the Montana and Wyoming social services organizations. The school and the residential facilities are run by separate organizations, which contributes to the difficulties with communication. The physical site is older but still amazing. On site you will find - Farming, gardening, recreation center (with bowling, pool, gym, pool tables, and video games), industrial arts building, Equestrian arts center. The actual education of the student is below par, very low academic expectations for student that are difficult to teach, but they will facilitate learning for those students that are intrinsically motivated learners. They don't take feedback well. If someone asks for more information, or is critical of some part of the program, they simply threaten to kick the kids out of the program.
