I am appalled at the very racist comments allowed on this page. Any reviews mentioning race should not be allowed to stay, Great Schools! I have had two children attend McNair. One is in high school now and one is still there. We moved to McNair after attending a private college prep school out of ...  Read more

Some teachers in Mcnair are bullies and exhibit favoritism. They pick on certain children for even small reason. When kids start kindergarten they are new to the whole process. Teachers should be supportive. I have heard of extremely good teachers like Ms Beach but then there are others makes you feel ...  Read more

I have 2 kids at Mcnair, The kids have been happy and so are we in general. Just worried about the rise in the number of kids registering every year.. The school has total 1200+ kids which is way too much for the school to handle considering the space, teachers, facilities. Also there is too much ...  Read more

I think this is a great school. I have read some mean-spirited comments. If you have personal problems, then contact the teacher/principal. This school is doing the right thing to address the needs of all students.

There is no personal care or treatment, principal assistant is nice but Mrs Gooden, the principal has been very harsh and mean towards us.

Great school, staff and PTA. However, I feel the homework load and project load is a lot, not required at elementary level. Too much pressure on the students.

This school has a few teachers who show favoritism and are bullies themselves.They make false judgement about kids and have the guts to say it on a child's face. This encourages other students to make accusations and bully the targeted kid. They said to my child on several occasions that her parents ...  Read more

It's a great school but some teachers needs to focus on the kids instate of themselves and stop blaming parents for kids education. Teacher sees the kids more then the parents and parents do rely on the teachers for their kids education and lives.
