McClarin High was a breath of fresh air from all the other public schools i went to. If it wasn't for this school I wouldn't have graduated on time. Frank McClarin is a alternative school that'll help get your high school credits back on the right track. In order to gain entry to the school you would have to do an essay on why you want to enroll . Afterwards everything is a breeze to gain your high school education. The most efficient option is the keystone packets, which is literally doing a packet of an entire subject! The teachers are all nice and it's pretty obvious they really want you to graduate and succeed.The school was a majority about education but I hear now they have their own sport teams and extracurricular activities. In conclusion McClarin is great and would recommend it to any and every student, especially if your wanting to graduate a little early. I'm a proud alumni of Frank McClarin and would encourage you to do the same!

I was new both in the school and in the United States. When I got to the school on the first day, the teachers and the students were so accommodating and made me feel at home. The teachers thought me to my understanding, the assisted me in getting my best scores in school. Although they gave academic knowledge, they also impacted knowledge about the world and the community as a whole. I am proud to say that everybody in the school contributed to my success and where I am in life right now and I say God richly bless them all especially Mr Ahmad, Mrs Adams, My advice , Coach Foaster and the principal.
This school is a great school. This school is great for students that want to finish high school early and to make up credits. This school has a lot of people surrounded to help with the students. And I also wish u guys would not call it an alternative school because we sopposed to focus on the past right that something I also learn. You can y’all about the past but not let it describe you as a person.
