Science Research is a great class and has a great teacher. The Science after school clubs are great - robotics and solar car. The 7th grade teachers were great. Some 8th grade teachers are great. The school does not recognize the extra effort of students such as band, science fair or when on field trips and the effort from the student to make up the missed assignments. Some teachers have 0 late policy, but life happens. I'm not having my child stay up until midnight to finish an assignment; some aren't even a grade. Or stay up late to finish multiple assignments and study for a test. They need to be fresh for the test. Assignments are not coordinated - had 3 huge presentation/report projects due in 1 week. Would like to see a larger band. Would like to get rid of 0 late policy - can't always accommodate all the homework, especially if at a school function. Teachers need to respond to email. Edline grades need to be more timely.

My daughter loves McNair. She just completed her first quarter in 7th grade and made excellent grades. She enjoys the arts integration in the core classes and is excited about getting up and going to school so that she can participate in the amazing performing arts electives offered here. I am very happy to know there's a school that accommodates various learning styles and allows students of all levels to thrive. I know some might be turned off by the surrounding neighborhood but we have not experienced any issue that would make us worry and I know that if ever there came a time that we did, the staff and administration is more than knowledgeable on how to solve it and are completely capable. I love the welcoming nature of the school and the staff. They are kind and always willing to talk with parents who have any questions or concerns. When the principal greets your student by name, you know you're in a good place. Great programs, great academic support, encouraging and enriching environment, friendly administrators, staff and parents.

The teachers and other staff members truly care about the students as individuals. They use and encourage hands-on activties and arts integration projects, as well as student products involving the use of technology. The staff works as a team to help all the students be successful.

My daughter has only gone to this school for 9 weeks, but she LOVES it! They expect a lot of their students, but they give a lot back in the form of a great education and a wonderful environment! My daughter has never loved going to school before, but now every Friday she can't wait for Monday!

I can't say enough good things about McNair. I have had three children go through their gifted/accelerated program; all three have been helped immeasurably, not only because of the strong and demanding programs but because of the caring, knowledgeable staff. From the principal to the custodians, everyone at this school is friendly and very capable. Absolutely everyone at this school is treated with respect and kindness, and you can feel it almost from the moment you walk in. One great recommendation is that I know lots of kids who graduate from McNair come back and visit and/or help out with various things. How many schools have kids who like the school so much they want to return regularly? In the gifted/accelerated team, the science and social studies programs are especially strong. The performing arts program is terrific. The new performing arts building will be great, as will be the new track!

My childrens' most memorable school years are from McNair. I'm pleased to say that they are enrolled in the top colleges now, on scholarships. The discipline and love for learning they acquired at McNair placed them high above the average.

My son has been at McNair for one year. At first I was hesitant to send him there due to the neighborhood, but the saftey there is top notch. He is in the best gifted program I could ever have imagined for him. He has learned more this year than other years combined! The teachers give more than any others I have encountered. I'm so happy I decided to send him this school.
