Does any of the above sound familiar? If so it may be time to start searching for healthy and safe alternative schools or programs.  Whether they are local or out of the area, after conferring with a school guidance counselor or therapist, you may determine that a different academic setting may benefit your child. Absences and Suspension Rates (or Incident reports) are useful indicators of student academic or behavioral problems. Most truancy and incident rates increase with grade levels. Another words, this will most likely escalate rather than go away if not addressed. We always recommend parents to seek local adolescent therapy* prior to residential placement. 

Incidents rates are on the rise and school expulsion have increased, nearly doubled in the High Schools within the past three years. The zero tolerance rates may be attributed to this rise in numbers, however it is a clear indication that some teens are truly struggling and need outside help.  This is has to do with many factors:

  • Population Increase, which leads to overcrowding in the schools
  • Lack of ACCEPTANCE of our Cultural Diversity
  • Family Conflicts - Marital Issues (Divorce, Separation, etc.)
  • Stress and Anger Management Problems
  • Lack of Communication and the skills to communicate with Today's Teens.
  • Ineffective or Inconsistence Parenting/Discipline Strategies
  • Substance Abuse (Drugs and/or Alcohol)
  • Undiagnosed Learning Disabilities - ADD/ADHD/LD
  • Zero Tolerance Level at Schools
