Going into McNair high school, I was a new student. What I mean by is that I transferred from another district into a school where students already know each other. But, everyone was really open to meeting me and nobody has anything against one another. The friends I have now were my Basketball teammates as well as my classmates from other classes. I kept my circle small though and kept small talk with other students, I focused on my academics which didn't disappoint me. I had great teachers who were involved in my education inside and outside of school and I appreciate them for that. What I'd like to see improved at McNair is our sporting equipments. We have really outdated fitness equipment and sporting equipment like basketballs, hoops, and the overall gym need to be better. Overall, the school is really good for only being 15 years old. Any new student coming here won't be disappointed, you'll enjoy your time here!

I was in Lodi Unified from elementary all the way until I graduated high school. I was a student of Mosher Elementary, Morada Middle School, and Ronald E. McNair High School. I hold precious memories from each school. It’s always nerve wracking entering a new school but all of them managed to make me feel welcomed. It’s extremely diverse so you’ll easily find where you feel like you belong. The teachers are incredible to say in the least. It’s easy to see the care and effort they put into seeing each and every student succeed. They go above and beyond to ensure it. Not only do they assure a great school experience, they make sure that the students are ready for what they will face ahead. I’m breezing through my college general education classes thanks to them! Lodi Unified and its staff have definitely helped me discover who I am and prepared me for who I am to become.
I have had great experience with Lodi Unified School District. Many have been very receptive to my concerns. For instance, when I contacted them regarding increasing plant-based options in our school lunches, they invited me to speak with them more, and eventually introduced and promoted new food options!

Sadly, our district is not extremely diverse. I don't believe this is the fault of the district, but I think it would be very appreciated if the district embraced diversity and increased education of different cultural perspectives.

Lastly, I am concerned for students who may not be as academically-motivated or outspoken as others like myself. I worry that their concerns are not heard or listened to very often, and that, due to our lack of personal counselors, many students may not feel like their school admin is there for them.
