Default military schools?

Hi all,

We're searching for military schools for a middle-school boy. I don't know
where to start with this, what to look for or what to expect. Any help out
there? We live in Colorado, in case you couldn't tell from the sig. :-)

Why are you looking into military schools? Is this what the child wants?

Why military school? What do you hope to get from one?

You mean a military boarding school (i.e., not necessarily in Colorado?)
Or a day school? If it's the latter, your state probably has some sort
of independent/private school association that could help. Or, some
public schools have junior ROTC programs, but that wouldn't be the
entire school program.

I can't help you with that. I'm too confused trying to reconcile "ski
bum" and "military school."

She wants to pack her step-son off to military school so she and the boy's
father can continue to enjoy their swinger lifestyle. Poor kid.

I think we're more interested in military boarding schools. Just on a
fact-finding mission at this point.

Why military school? What do you hope to get from one?


gee, maybe discipline, manners, courtesy, respect? Things that are
SORELY lacking in the public school system these days....

And I dont blame the teachers, their hands are tied by results of the
liberal social engineering of the last few decades..

That, precisely. Do you have any idea where we might start our search?

Right. Kids should be learning these things from their parents.
