New Perspectives - Feb, 1993 Issue #20 

Billings, Montana
Rusty Lundin, Director of Marketing

Yellowstone Treatment Centers, eight miles outside Billings, Montana has an uniqueness in that it is a fully accredited public school, but serving only the residents of the facility. It was founded in 1957 as a boys ranch, but over the years has evolved into a residential treatment facility with care ranging from an intensive care unit to community based group homes. Psychiatric intervention is melded into the school part of the program so even the most disruptive student will have a minimum impact on the rest of the students, maintaining a sense of safety in the classrooms. Principal Robert Duncan reports that currently, 64% of their students do not require special education services. So, a departmentalized regular education program in Math, Science, English and Social Studies has been established for those students. This can also be used as on-site transition into regular classrooms when Special Education students are ready.
