    "There were a lot of courses offered, although not always taught well. There was good amount of diverse clubs and activities, but it was difficult to run events."

    "Better elective and more teachers that care about the work they give us. Otherwise, the school is great for college readiness and really paves a great path for all students that attend."

    "Dr. Ronald E. McNair Academic High School is not just the second best high school in New Jersey--it is a place that nurtures academic excellence as well as well rounded individuals. Jersey City is among one of the most diverse cities in the country, and attending a school in this area has been an education within itself. They teach us skills that you could never learn in school and they encourage us to embrace our differences and join as one. We also have unique school celebrations such as multicultural day, black history month celebrations, and asian american and pacific islander assembles. This instills their students with the importance of acceptance and open mindedness, unparalleled to what other experiences can give. The only thing that needs to be improved on is funding. Jersey City schools typically do not receive a lot of funding for technology and sports equipment. Overall, McNair allows us to get an education both in school and after school ends."

    "I loved the opportunities that McNair provided for me as a high school student there. The teachers and other staff members pushed me to the best of my abilities. The rigorous course material definitely challenged me and prepared me well for college. McNair can improve by making sure that the teachers and staff they hire are well equipped to provide a positive educational experience to all the students."

    "It has been a tough 4 years in McNair Academic, but I believe that McNair is truly one of the most outstanding schools in Hudson County, if not, the state of New Jersey. Compared the other schools in Hudson County, McNair has the most available AP classes, and most of the secular subjects are honors courses, so you're practically in college already! McNair is not just exceptional in the realm of academics, but there is a sense of community that you cannot find at any other school. And as a member of the LGBTQ community, the acceptance and love I received from my peers made high school worthwhile. However, the facilities available to the students are not entirely up to date, and not varied either. It's what you would expect out of any ordinary high school, but I feel as if there could be so much more for the "smartest kids in Jersey City". McNair also concentrates too much on academics and college, there should be an increase in focus in the arts, and also, school spirit."
