I graduated from Island View in 2009 when I was 17. I was there for a relatively short amount of time, but it was time well spent. It was certainly helpful in terms of getting my life together, but it was also a very enjoyable experience. The milieu therapy was very helpful for me because many of my problems had to do with trouble relating to others. The open environment helped me learn how to better understand other people and behave more appropriately and maturely. The staff there was great and was easily just as helpful for me as the therapists. They are with you 24/7 and are very patient and understanding. Our team had all types of people, each with their own unique issues that they brought to the table. Yet, the staff was able to cater to everyone. Although I did have some closer friends, I felt like I knew everyone really well and I could easily have had a great time with any individual on our team.

I am an Island View graduate. When I first showed up to Island View I did not leave the dorm for weeks, I sat in a room and did nothing for days on end, but finally I began to go out, and attend (if not participate at first) in school. Slowly but surely I began to make progress, opening up to the possibility that being happy, could in fact, be okay for me that I could be happy and not feel guilty about it. People could care for me and love me and I could care for them and love them as well. My story at Island View is a long one and won't all be written here but the difference maker for me was the people there. Island View hires smart and sharp staff, teachers, and therapists, and the program is a good one, but more than that they hire individuals who care. They have the motivation to help those who need it, and have the skills to do so. I see where I am in life and I'm pleased with it. More than that, I am happy. I know this could not have been possible without the amazing staff, teachers, and therapists at Island View. I literally owe them my life and my happiness.

We made the decision to place our son in the hands of Island View with a heavy heart. It is not an easy decision. Within a few weeks we knew he was in the right place. Island View provided a safe platform for our child to find out more about himself and the reasons for his non-consequential behavior while also attending school and gaining back insight and self-esteem. They have some of the best, most dedicated staff working with the kids. Island View also works to help repair the family and are excellent at teaching parents about how to cope and change while their child is away and upon their return. We will always be glad we chose Island View for our son.

Island View s program saved our lives and broke the despairing spiral that plagued our troubled teenager. The therapeutic programs that Island View offers focus not only on the individual child, but on the all-important family dynamic, helping us to better realize our strengths and weaknesses and perhaps most importantly, how integral we as a family are to the recovery process. Island View and its phenomenal team provided our child and family with the tools that we all need to lead healthy and productive lives moving forward. Are we perfect? Not by a long shot. Do we struggle daily? You bet. But thanks to Island View, we re now are able to live, love and talk about our fears, dreams and hopes for the future. Thank you doesn t begin to express our gratitude.

Our daughter went downhill so rapidly during her freshman year in high school that we knew, without any doubt, that we had to do something drastic. We hired an Educational Consultant, and after interviewing us, our daughter and her various doctors, she recommended Island View and two other RTCs to us. We traveled to Utah, toured all three facilities, and strongly felt that Island View was the best match for our daughter. Island View helped to turn her life around. While she still has issues to this day, she came home after Island View, excelled in high school, got admitted to her first choice of college, and graduated 3.5 years later with honors. We firmly believe that this could never have happened without the skills she learned at Island View.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
