Oak Creek Ranch School

My son went to Oak Creek Ranch School in Sedona, Arizona. We were assured that it would be a good place for a 12 year old and he would be among several others of his age, supervised and extra help with some of his learning and behavioral issues. The whole stay was a nightmare. There was only one other 12 year old, all the other kids were high school students, smoking, doing drugs and more. No supervision every night for 4 hours, kids left to roam around. Whenever I called,the only supervisor would complain constantly that they were short staffed. My son was expelled for taunting another kid with bruises on his body. California Child Protective Services got involved, but nothing ever happened. I contacted the Sherriff Dept. in Sedona, and was told that "they are good people at that schoo" and they weren't going to investigate. Of course, I was not refunded any tuiton and my son learned everything he shouldn't have, cussing, smoking, drugs, sexual encounters with older girls. To this day, 5 years later he still will not tell us about some of the stuff that went on there, he is scarred, our whole family has been traumatized by this experience. Schools like Oak Creek Ranch School need to be put out of business!
