I'm looking for a high school (Yeshiva) for my son. He is very high functioning and can do well in the right environment. He's had his fair share of negativity in the yeshiva systems (really doesn't want to go to any)and is currently in public school. I DO NOT WANT ANYTHING NEAR THE TRI-STATE AREA! His behavior issues stem from past trauma and abuse, so he needs a very warm and loving environment.
Any ideas? Or do you know someone who is knowledgeable in these kinds of yeshivas?

You can try Doresh in Miami.

Doresh students have learning and/or intellectual disabilities. If this is not the case for your son, op, it will probably not be a good match.

Agreed. But if there are any learning issues, I think it's worth a phone call.

Shaarei adirim in Chicago. It’s modeled after shaarei arazim in Monsey.

I'm the OP....
Thanks for responding!
I've heard some not good things about Doresh (we live in Florida).... serious issues that I can't have my child in.
The place in Chicago, I checked their website.... they seem to be very yeshivish and very rigid. My son won't go near a white shirt with a 10ft pole...lol. hates dress pants, too.
He has learning disabilities as well but he's got a thick IEP and has suffered abuse. So I need to be really careful where I send him.
Are these the only 2 places? I've noticed all the threads mention these 2....

New yeshiva in lakewood called imrei Noam. Don't know details on what level of academics it is. I know it's geared to boys who have not made it in other yeshivas, have difficult lives etc.... they do alot of teaching them trades. Rabbi wallerstein endorses it strongly.

What about the tri-state area is a big no-no? Would you consider Rambam Mesivta?
