With so many military schools in Los Angeles and around the rest of the country, it can be hard to know which school is right for your child. Before selecting a school, you will want to ensure that the school is the best match for your child and your family. To narrow down your choices, you should prepare a few questions.

When most parents decide to send their children to military schools they do so because they are worried about their child. Their child may have recently gotten into trouble, or they may be worried that their child is going to get into trouble if left untreated. Therefore, it is important to discuss how the school will work with your child and whether or not they can guarantee success.

Unfortunately, no school can guarantee success, but you can talk to the school about their success rate. You can find out how many students graduate from the program, and you can find out whether or not those children were rehabilitated by the program.

If your child has already been in trouble, you should ask the school whether or not they accept court appointed teens. If the child has a legal escort, you will want to know if the school is willing to accept the escort as well as the student. In many cases, children do not even want to go to military school. If your child is resistant to the idea, you need to ask the school if they will accept students who do not want to be there. If so, what is their protocol about run away students? What are their discipline policies?

When looking at military schools, you should also ask if they offer any therapy to supplement their military programs. If they offer therapy, you may want to ask what style of therapy they offer. Do they allow children to take medication? Will they give your child medication without your approval? By asking these questions, you will easily be able to tell if the school in question is right for your child.
