    Ronald McNair is a great school with responsive involved teachers and administrators. They are committed to ensuring the students educational needs are met and offer many extra programs such as before school turoring instrumental music lessons social skills groups during lunch and enriched curriculum. Kids are happy and engaged ; teachers are respected and liked my students. The MSA scores overall are quite strong. Mrs McFarlane the principal runs a tight ship and is wonderful to deal with. I am very happy with McNair

    This is a top notch school. This school has the most caring and nurturing staff I have ever seen. I am very fortunate that my child attended McNair. This staff treats each child as if they were their own.
