What is "alternative education?" An alternative school is one that offers the same basic curriculum as the "traditional" school but uses alternative delivery methods. While the structure of the alternative program may vary from site to site, there are common effective characteristics which have been identified in alternative schools: Small class size, supportive environment, autonomy and democratic structure, accountability and constant evaluations, opportunities for community involvement and a school environment which is safe, disciplined and drug free.
