235. New Horizons Youth Ranch

New Horizons Youth Ranch is one of “We fix everything” ranches in Montana. However there is lack of qualified employees, education is not of a modern standard. The Students end up being behind their old classmates at home.

A parent states:

In our situation, despite many phone calls, he never received any treatment from a qualified counsellor or a doctor. Would it have made a difference? Who knows? The appointments were never made. The promised weekly phone calls rarely came, and it was very stressful. To be fair, the ranch was undergoing much change while D was there. They were moving, there was family emergencies, new staff coming on board. and others leaving. School never started until mid October that year. We discovered too late that D had not completed his credits. There were no consequences and no returned phone calls.

It doesn’t sound like a fun place to be as a teenager.
