We were zoned for Meadowview, but had a terrible time with a nasty teacher and oblivious principal. We opted for RE McNair DLA with School Choice and have had an incredible learning experience! Our son has completed K-1 grades at McNair and has thrived. McNair's principal, Dr. Bolden is ahead of education trends, pushing staff to be thoroughly involved, always professional, and completely invested in the success of their students and school. As a "standard" Dekalb County school (not a theme or charter), McNair breeches the confines of the districts reputations by ensuring all of its students are engaged with practical application of knowledge and immersive educational experiences. McNair stands out as a leader in STEM education in elementary education in District 5. Students are engaged in chess, robotics, music, art, physical education, agriculture, hydroponics, aquaponics, a biology lab with various creatures for study, and so much more - as a standard for every child in every grade. Every student is spoken to as a person of value and intelligence.
