Teacher effectiveness: Ineffective

I feel by McNair reinforceing uniforms it just makes the children not want to wear uniforms anymore than they already do no matter what they say or do there just not going to wear them. They say to prevent loss of distraction but how is there distraction if you have certain rules preventing students for too less or too much clothing. By the expressing there self it builds there confidence but by wearing uniforms it basically just a prison. Also Teachers need to set aside time for students who need a little more help instead of separate them into different teams. do they not realize by putting students on separate hallways it causes conflict between students by other kids judging how smart or a little more confused students are when learning

I feel that the administrators, especially the principal, focus too much on making this school a prison compound. They do not try to make this school a welcoming learning environment. Sure they have special visitors come every once in awhile which is really nice. But the day-to-day operation of the school is very negative. I feel the teachers, however, do the best they can with the pressure that is put on them. My child's all time favorite teacher was a math teacher here last year. My daughter never enjoyed math before until her freshman year. I even sat in on some of her classes and was really impressed with her algebra teacher. But to get to her classroom, I had to walk past the principal who was actually yelling at kids. I think she is better suited for a juvenile correctional facility than a school. Unfortunately, we found out that that math teacher did not continue to work at McNair after last year. My daughter was actually in tears the first day of school when she found out. And I bet that isn't the only really good teacher that left.

This school lacks the proper leadership to run the school (2014). Most of the student behavior is good and the teachers work hard with the given tools. With the right leader, this school can overturn soon because the potentials are there.

I love the teacher involvement, they really care about the students and always try to push them beyond their expectations. Im so thankful for them, not all teachers care.

Overall I see improvement based on academics and interaction with faculty and students. The teachers I have met appeared genuinely interested in my son's academic progress and offered mentoring, gearing him towards college. Some students behavior leaves much still to be desired. Manners, etiquette, respect and grooming starts at home. Parents should not expect the school staff to raise their children and teach them those basics things. The school can only be as successful as the parent's committment and their involvement in their child's education and growth. Parental involvement and support at McNair High is poor. Parents do not support most school activities, programs or PTSA. Attendance at most functions are extremely low. However, should a problem arise they are quick to storm the school. We need parent and community involvement/support if we expect the school and students to meet their full potential and become successful leaders.

There is absoultley no reason any should ever want to attend McNair - at all. Everyone at this school is absoutley insane - the kids never go to class and the staff is just a buddy-buddy with them liek they are there friends. no one here wants to succeed, not the students or the staff. You would have to seriously hate your child to send them here, it really doesn't get any worse.

This is the school I attend. The teachers are engaged in what the students do and have wonderful academies and great hands on activities.

This is the school I attened. I am very happy to see the improvements that are taking place. The teachers are great and seem to be very caring and concern people. I do feel though that if the baseball team had a coach the knew as much about baseball as he does football the team would do a lot better.
