McClarin HIgh School (Fulton County Schools)
3605 Main Street
College Park, GA 30337
McClarin High School is a choice school that recognize that one size does not fit all when educating youth. Not all students are successful in a traditional environment. We believe that education should take students from where they are, to where they want to go. We strive to provide opportunities for academic success through alternative approaches to learning in a supportive environment. The goals of the alternative schools are as follows:
▪ To provide modes of learning to fit the individual needs of students.
▪ To provide opportunities for flexible scheduling.
▪ To help students achieve success both personally and academically.
▪ To establish clear expectations and high standards for behavior, attendance, and performance.
▪ To foster individual responsibility and accountability for learning
