If you are looking for a highly structured environment for your teen, you might want to consider military schools in Hawaii. Teens who are having some behavior problems may do better with a change of environment and more structure. This is also a great option for teens interested in eventually joining the military. It gives them an idea of what to expect. However, these programs are not for everyone. It is important that you have some basic information about military schools before signing your child up for one. There are some questions you need to ask.

What is the termination policy? If you decide to remove your child prior the completion of the contract, are there penalties?

This is not a public school, so you will be expected to pay a tuition. Most military schools will not keep a child who does not want to attend. You also might find that the program is not what you expected, or that it is not such a good fit for your teen after all. There is also a chance that your teen will get kicked out. Most military schools have strict rules, and they will remove a teen who breaks them. If this is the case, you need to know their termination policy. Some schools may refund part of the tuition, but most will not. There might even be penalties for pulling your teen out before the completion of the program. This is information you certainly want to have ahead of time.

Is the facility staff secured 24 hours a day, 7 days a week?

Not all military schools have constant supervision. There might be some time, especially on the weekends, when teens are left unsupervised. Sometimes this works because the teens can come home on the weekends and holidays to visit with family. However, if you are looking for a total change in environment, then allowing your teen to interact with their old friends every weekend and holiday may not be the best option.
