Intermountain is a very safe place. They are transparent with everything that goes on, and children work through relationships, not behaviors. In my experience, as a parent with a child that lived at Intermountain for two years, the parents who leave upset and negative, are the ones who weren't willing to look at themselves. My guess regarding the negative comment below would be that it's from a parent who would rather blame the school for their child's choices than look at what was really going on, because in mine, and so many other's experiences, this place is a life-changer, it's safe, staff and faculty are I highly recommend it.
Budget cuts have completely reduced the quality of education and staff. Students are not cared for responsibly, parents are lied to, and always blamed for problems school doesn't want to handle or cannot handle. Intermountain is not a safe environmen for children.
