I thought this was a great school. My son is highly aggressive and needs structure and consistency to make it through the day. This program provided just that. Yes, they don't have team sports or music class. I realize that my son made mistakes and was sent to a lock down treatment center. He was not sent to day camp. He learned many different strategies and skills to help him cope in a society that he didn't fit into before. The special education director met over the phone to create and implement his new IEP. I also receive monthly progress notes about his academic progress from his therapist and found it easy to contact the principal if I had any other questions. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is serious about getting their child help.

This was a 'forced' placement for my child under AB 3632 from The Department of Education in California. Although it was presented to be the only treatment center appropriate for my son, and it was to adhere to his I.E.P. written and signed in line with Federal and State law, it does not (after 9 months of residential treatment) seem to be giving him everything they advertise to offer. It is a facility structured and modeled after a punitive modality. It says it is based on behavior modification, but I found that to be in the favor of Copper Hills' convenience and the behaviors that are rewarded have to 'fit' into Copper Hill's schedule and or staff's ability. It is not individualized treatment. They offer no music, no team sports, no outlets for these children socially.They are told, 'don't get comfortable here.'

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.
