My experience at McNair Hugh School has been Great. The Staff there are patient and understanding. Everyone is accepted no matter who you are. Being at McNair has taught me a lot of things not just in academics but life lessons as well. They made me realize my responsibility of being a student and besting a advocate. They helped me see the world. Literally I have see many different cultures and been apart of many National educational excursions. They have showed me that anything is possible and everyone is great. When attending McNair you could have the best 4 years of your life there but it’s just how you decide to make it the best 4 years. I Love McNair High School.
All staff at McNair High school are very determined. They want what's best for each and very student. Their are goals and plans set for us students every year, we are given the materials to accomplish them also. However, McNair High suffers from behavioral issues which hinders teachers from teaching and students from learning.
