There were highs and lows. There were some supportive staff at McNair for a couple years, but they ended up leaving. The head administrator was rarely there, and when she was she never seemed to care about students education, only what they were wearing. The school didn’t prepare me for college at all, I had to take the hardest classes offered, and as a senior who is about to graduate, I still don’t feel prepared.

This school is not ideal for anyone who is advanced. The curriculum is not up to par, the students are wild and the building itself needs to be remodeled. The food is not great, some teachers do not care much for teaching, and the administration worries about the wrong things. The clubs, sports, school spirit, and student involvement are terribly low.
McNair Highschool is a great school who wishes nothing but the best for their students! They try with all their might to bring students to there full potential.
