Truly I can say this is why many children grow up to be troubled adults. This school should be under constant review but since it is know as a black school no one that could make a difference cares. Teachers say it take the parents to make a difference, it takes control, and disciple. These children are left behind, I say these children are left behind and no one cares... and if they do they can't do anything about it. Everyone there should be replaced.
Okay if i could really rate this school of a 7th grade experience, i would give it a 2 because the students act like its cool to get in trouble, curse at teachers, and act like their grown. For example: they do have a uniform but NO STUDENT WEARS IT! the only good thing GOOD about the school is the band. they sound like a high school band which is great. On the other hand somebody needs to get some of those other kids straight. PLEASE!
If you care about your child's education and safety do not send them to this school. I have never seen a school with so many problems. Here are just a few I have been though for the entire year: 1. No return of phone calls made to teachers 2. No Phone Calls placed when issues exist 3. Most of the staff uninformed and uncaring I regret going with the advise to just give the school a chance. I was under the impression that this school was going to turn around from its reputation. I was very unimpressed and unhappy with McNair. I transfered my child this year because once again the testing was so low that they are on the No Child Left Behind list of schools that scores are too low.
McNair MS is a different school this year. The teachers at the school seem very dedicated to the students and the principal is working very hard to change things. There have not been very many other parents at the PTSA meetings or at the conference nights and this concerns me. I don't know about the safety and discipline of the entire school but in the eighth grade they seem to have everything straight. I see a lot of passionate professionals working very hard at this school and I'm proud to be a part of it.
