I like the teachers and students. As a black student I don't feel singled out. But the principal is cold and impersonal and only interacts when she has no other options.

I really like this school, but sometimes, the principal seems kind of cold. I like all the counselors, and the teachers are nice. Sadly, people out of my ethnicity seem to almost think I'm weird. Overall I love the electives and I have many friends. I really love how the teachers make everything so clear ...  Read more

The principal is as cold as ice to guest teachers, but the students are top notch, especially the 6th graders. The AP's are all over the school and approachable.

I used to be a student a McMeans and to tell you the truth...I loved that school! I'm an 8th grader now but had to move, so I no longer go there, but McMeans is a great school with the best teachers. I just have a complaint againt the principal, Dr. Rice. She isn't that involved with the school and she's ...  Read more

I agree with many parents. The principal and administration seem to be too harsh on mild discipline issues. Samll infractions like forgetting a homework paper result in detention. A low grade for the first infraction is OK perhaps detention there after. It seems they care only about rules - not ...  Read more
