Not enough security.! Police officer on site admitted that the school is under staffed to control 1100 students. My daughter has been bullied since she started the 6th grade in 2014 let me tell you the administration has not done a thing. If they can't control the school we need better administration and more security.! We as the parents pay taxes for our children to get the education they need and for them to be safe as well. Something has to change.

Nice school but i agree that their should be a track around feild if the coaches are going to make the students run laps in the field because some people are allergic to bugs and grass ,but otherwise its a very good school but some teachers can be rude

The staff and teachers there really care about the kids. They want to them succeed and are willing help them in their endeavors. They provide tutoring and encourage parents to come to their child's classes to see how things ar done. This is a relatively new school and needs an asphalt track around the football and soccer fields in order to hold track events. It would also help the parents in the area that want to get in better shape and want a safe place to walk or run as it is in a rural area.

The school itself was nice, but the teachers lacked concern for me when I needed help. The nurse once told me that I wasn't sick enough for her to see me when I had been throwing up all morning. The students that really needed punishment were never really punished, while the students who had gotten in trouble for the first time were getting detention. The lunch was fine, but the process of getting lunch was irregular. We needed a card to get in and if we didn't have it we were to be seperated from the rest of the children that were eating. I learned more from other schools than I ever did in this school. I hope things have improved since the last time I was there.

McNair is a really good school. I went there and I think it was really great. All the teachers were great. I loved my year. There were downfalls, but they encouraged me to do better next time.

We just moved here from Corpus Christi and I am very disappointed in this school district! The dress code rules are awful! I think long hair and earrings on boys are disrespectful. The discipline is not very good either. The bullies are still winning because the administration appears to be scared of the students and their parents, which is really sad because it takes away the learning part - which is why they are there! Also, the first week my son was there, his teacher told him he should have checked into a daycare instead of school. Not professional! Thank God we can start somewhere else next year!

My daughter attends this sixth grade school and I am less than pleased with this school. There are no extra curricular activities in place so that the kids can stay busy and away from the 'bad stuff'. The disciplinary problems (kids) are not dealed with and allowed to continue with the rest of the student population and we all know that this is the age where kids are most vulnerable. I have tried to communicate my concerns with counselors and teachers and get the 'it's just a phase' response. I am completely unhappy with this school.

An all 6th grade school? When I first read about mcnair it sounded like a good idea. But my daughter comes home unhappy every day because the teachers put so much work and rules on her. Each teacher thinks that their class is the most important.

My child is attending Ronald McNair for the first time and so far he loves it. He says all the teachers are nice and really care about the students. I really do think this school has alot more rules and is trying to get this school to the top. My son is in Mariachi Class and he enjoys playing the violin. I know for a fact when parents get involved with the school and show they care about their children, the school will thrive and conquer all academic scores. May the parents of McNair show the school we care about our children's education. They have a great and positive principal and vice principal. The teachers and staff seem positive for the 2006-2007 school year. God Bless this school and the students.

I was a student of s.W. In the 80's and was proud to send my child there but after this year if I have the chance I will not be sending her back to this district next year.Everyday my child comes home unhappy due to the faculty or the surroundings and this school is not worth her being unhappy all the time.There no 'reaching out' to the stidents like I went to school but only laziness in the teachers and poor discipline towards the 'bad kids'. I have to say that I am really disappointed in the way this school has changed for not the best over the years. It is unfortunate that it has come to this considering my family and husbands' also go back many generations including them as staff members.If it continues like this the future of the school and students, I believe, is in serious trouble.
