About This School
Alternative schools are public schools that offer nontraditional education for students whose needs cannot be met in a regular, special education, or vocational school.

Alternative schools include schools for potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems.

Daniel McKee Alternative School Reviews
I go to Daniel McKee and it's a great school. My grades are better than they've ever been. There are less than 10 people in all of my classes. When I first got zero-toleranced I was afraid that it was going to be boring and super strict, but it's not. It has less drama though. We have physical training three times a week and daily searches, but it's nothing major. It is truly a great school.
do NOT put your child in this school
My daughter was a model student for ten months and then made a stupid mistake and got zero toleranced. Daniel Mckee was the alternative so I put her in there. There rules and regulations are as stict, if not worse, than any junenile detention center there is. My 12 year old daughter is not have fingers stuck unter her bra to search for weapons just to enter the stupid school.
