In this high school in California, parents actually pay $53,300 for their kids to spend 6 weeks disconnected from the western world.

So Midland school, is a co-ed boarding school based in los olivos, and was established in 1932 with an aim to help students who are too connected to get disconnected.😐😞

As a freshman in the school, you’ll be asked to come with just 3 things, an axe, a knife and a lighter. No cell phones are allowed in the premises, if found it would be confiscated until the end of the six weeks.

In a statement by the head of the school Christopher Barnes said “We know we’re different and we know we’re a little crazy, The question for each student and for each family is if we’re your kind of crazy.”😂😛

The students plant what they eat, they do the dishes, clean the windows, and sweep the chapel. Fall out of line and it’s a problem, said Barnes. He cited the wood-fired showers. “When it’s your job in the afternoon to go up and light a fire and make hot water, if you fail at that task  —  either you don’t tend to the fire or whatever else  then you suffer the wrath of your peers,” he said. “And you earned that wrath.”( wow that military grade yo).

After grad the students are gonna be able to apply for any university of their choice. Still, a number of Midland students said that while the initial withdrawal was difficult, they ultimately found the phoneless life to be almost liberating.

One 16 year old Jade Feldsher said that before joining the school she was been controlled by her devices, she also said that “I thought that everybody was becoming a phone zombie, and I knew that I’d become one too, and I did, it sounds really cheesy but i think I’m happy to not have it”.
