171. Meadowlark Academy (I)
This isolated academy was located in Delphos, Kansas
In this isolated town a number of teenage girls were sent by their parents so they could live a lonely life shunned from anything normal teenage girls experience. The loneliness cannot even be imagined.
If they acted up or tried to escaped they were warned that they could be sent to Jamaica to an even worse facility named Tranquility Bay which still was in operation back then. The facility closed in 2011.
It was not a fun place to be teenager.
