Arkansas school sign goes viral

One strict rule at an Arkansas Parochial High School is going viral nationwide because the school says it wants to teach their students problem solving. 

The principal of the Catholic High School for Boys posted this picture on Facebook of a sign that hangs outside of the school with the caption "Welcome to Catholic High. We teach reading, writing, arithmetic, and problem-solving."

See the Facebook post here.

It reads "If you are dropping off your son's forgotten lunch, books, homework, equipment, etc. Please turn around and exit the building, your son will learn to problem-solve."

That post has been shared over 116,000 times. 

The principal says the point of the sign is so that boys learn not to rely on Mom and Dad for everything.
