Boarding School help

I am exploring boarding schools in the NY metro area for my 16year old son. He will repeat 10th gr. this fall. He is defiant at home and has done zero h.w. for months now. Anyone have a teen in boarding school in the Northeast and what has your experience been? Honest opinion, pls. Thx.


I will be getting the name of one tomorrow from a friend—she was telling me today about one that did wonders for her nephew who needed a lot of structure and tons of help with executive function.
