Sorenson’s Ranch, Coed 8 to 12 grade Boarding School for teens at risk. Located a couple hours south of Salt Lake City Utah .   I visited the campus, the staff and the kids. Everything  was very pleasant.
 
The school grounds had many new looking building and a few old well kept buildings. The boys and girls dorms were clean and well kept.      www.school-placement.com 
 
The cafeteria was clean and neat. I ate there visiting with the students. They thought I might be sending my child to the school and they did not discourage me at all.  We chatted normally and the kids were positive and happy. They did explain they had some trouble in the past that got them to attend Sorenson’s Ranch.
The classrooms were well equipped and looked like normal classrooms.   Small classes with one teacher seemed to be the norm.
 
Therapeutically Sorenson’s ranch seemed to be very sophisticated in their treatment and understanding of their troubled teens. The kids I met at the school certainly didn’t seem troubled at all,   
 
In the afternoon we saddled up a few horses and together with some students and one staff, we went on a long trail ride through the woods and near by mountains. The kids were totally positive and enjoyed the outing very much.
 
Here at Sorenson’s Ranch School, the kids are working on issues of behaviors and staying on track academically.
