I have a sibling who went here and by all accounts this school is a joke. He learned nothing and was allowed to get away with all kinds of behavioral problems that the other schools in the district would have never put up with. The problem is that McKay does little to actually reform behavioral problems. They will do whatever they can to just grant a diploma, despite failing grades and massive behavioral issues.

I am a student of this school.I was in the junior high level. This place is horrible. The principle is horribly mean and grouchy. When ever the kids picked on me or someone else. No disciplined was taken place. The social workers are okay, but they will sometime twist your words around. So, i HIGHLY recommending do not attend this school for you or your daughter/son.

i am a student of martin p. mackay center and i do not agree that this school is a bad school i have gone there for six years now and i have never gotten into a physical fight with anyone, i have been on the honor roll once since being in the school which is an improvement for me on account of my special Ed needs were not being met in lincoln way central. the students have not bullied me in school even though i am over 400 ibs and if anyone tried thay would be disciplined immediately by the teachers and staff when students go to their class they are expected to do the work they are given in the past it has not been as orderly as it is now but as of 2008 it is the best school i've been in for my needs

There are not many activities or should I say organized activities the children can get involved in. For the most part I worry about my children's safety walking home from shcool because there are fights on almost every corner. I am seeking to transfer both of my kids from Mckay as soon as possible and never look back. I think Mckay is a horrible school.

My son attended McKay after receiving multiple detentions at Lincoln-Way High School. He had to go to his teachers at his home school and pick up his assignments and then do his work at McKay. I didn't have much confidence that anyone verified that he picked up his assignments or completed them. He was allowed to read any materials that he brought with him, such as a magazine. The emphasis appeared to be on 'babysitting' him and as long as he kept quiet, it appeared that was all that was expected of him.
