Actually, there is no secret to getting your child into boarding school. Just a lot of hard work and a heavy commitment of time.
The pandemic has upended our lives in ways we never imagined. Heads of school also have been impacted as they try to plan for the future. Concerns about enrolment, community safety, and the school's finances are just a few of their worries.
You've tried everything but still your child has serious issues. Perhaps it's time to think about sending him to a residential therapeutic school.
