High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
McNair Academic High School is a public high school located at 123 Coles Street in Jersey City, in Hudson County, New Jersey. The school is named in memory of Dr. Ronald E. McNair, the astronaut who died on the Space Shuttle Challenger. McNair is operated by the Jersey City Public Schools district. The current principal is Mr. Edward Slattery.
The school originally opened as Academic High School in 1976 on 9 Bentley Avenue in Jersey City. However, in 1998 the school moved to its new location on 123 Coles Street due to safety and spacing reasons. Its name was also changed to honor the late astronaut. The JROTC, Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corpsprogram at McNair Academic High School, which has grown tremendously since its inception, began on July 1, 1995. There were 30 cadets at first in the program, and the number has more than tripled.
Every year McNair's science research student face stiff competition at the various levels of competition, Hudson County Science Fair, Junior Science and Humanities Competition, Siemens Westinghouse, and the International Science and Engineering Fair. In the past few years, McNair has come out on top sweeping most of the Gold Medals in the Hudson County Science Fair.
The school's Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps program is the school's largest student-ran program, and has had numerous honors throughout its existence. They qualified for drill competitions of the local, regional, and, in 2005, the national level. In 2005 the Cougar Battalion renewed its Honor Unit with Distinction star, earning a score of 99.97 percent. In 2006 the Cougar Battalion Drill team won Second Place overall in the Unarmed Division, and Fifth Place in the Armed Division in the U.S. Army Cadet Command Eastern Region Championship. Cadets participate actively in community service projects, fundraisers, and host a plethora or battalion events throughout the school year.

The McNair Academic high school aims on targeting the success of their students. The institution is renowned due to qualities like supportive learning environment, respected and enthusiastic staff and faculty members, and the capability to meet the needs of the community’s wide ranging requirements.
