Downtown Alternative School (GR. JK-06)

In 1980, DAS was established by parents who wanted to be actively involved in their children's education.  Peaceful conflict resolution or Peacebuilding was developed at DAS and has been adopted by schools around the world.  This tradition continues through the school's commitment to equity, social justice and environmental responsibility.
We are located in the heart of the St. Lawrence Market community and share the site with housing above, some shops below, and the playground with St. Michael School.  Since it is administratively twinned with Market Lane, DAS is able to access the swimming pool at the St. Lawrence C.C.  In addition, there is on-site childcare.  Please call the DAS Daycare at 416-368-9735 for more information.
