  • My son recently completed high school at Wisdom Ranch. He certainly 'grew up' a great deal while at the Ranch, and one of the best things is that he learned to own his life and take responsibility. At the same time, there were many significant concerns. First, the cost of the Ranch is quite disproportionate to the services you and your son will receive. Cost is comparable to an emotional growth school, yet there is no formal therapy offered. Services are quite limited. Communication is also very difficult. There is no parent handbook, nothing in writing to help you understand the philosophy of the Ranch and how it operates, thus parents often feel left in the dark. This also makes it quite difficult for parents to 'be on the same page' and partner with the Ranch in what they are trying to accomplish with your son. Would hesitate to recommend.

  • Wisdom Ranch School is not a "program" where you ship your teen off to be fixed. It is a school. The boys at Wisdom Ranch School are learning 24/7 and frequently they don't even know it! The lessons my son learned are too numerous to list, so I will tell you the ones I find to be the most important. He learned to recognize his strengths and weaknesses. He learned why it matters to know how to work hard and what things he's interested in working hard at in the future. He learned that he is going to change, and grow, and screw up, and choose different directions many times before he settles down and that it's okay (even good!) to try on different hats before buying one. But of all the things my son learned in his year at Wisdom Ranch School, the one that seems to mean the most is that the way his life turns out is up to him. He needed to have an opportunity to make the choices, and to decide what kind of man he wanted to be. With the help of Wisdom Ranch School, the person my son has chosen to be is someone I love, trust, respect and admire more than I ever knew I could.
