My daughter has been at Turning Winds for 3 months now, the first thing I noticed was her change in attitude and her appreciation for everything in general. She loves the mountain hiking and the beautiful scenery in Montana. She has been hiking and camping on the river several times already. She loves being in the tranquil environment and close to nature. She tells me she is on a journey to self-discovery and is in the best possible place to do so. She is continuing to develop new skills to deal with whatever life happens to throw her down the road. I am very thankful to the dedicated and loving staff at Turning Winds.
This school is amazing in every way. I just wanted to say that even though this was difficult to go through, I am a better person for doing so. I am currently in college and doing exceptionally well. I hope to graduate next year. I would definitely recommend this to any parent. Turning Winds Academic Institute has an amazing staff and I wanted to say Thank You to Gordon.
My son is a different teen from the one I sent away - I am so excited to see him grow and become the man he is meant to be. I think he needed some time away to face his demons and evaluate what he wanted out of life. I am grateful to the program and continue to marvel at his growth. All of the staff at Turning Winds are wonderful and I couldn't recommend them more highly!
