His job is a joke, it is done better by other people. And he picks on people for the smallest things. He shows no respect for students and treats them like 3rd graders. He gave 2 people each a week suspension for giving each other a high five. He does his job poorly and does not relate to people well at all. He doesn't even try to relate to people at all. What makes it worse is that he doesn't know what a hallway is called, he calls it a highway. He goes over the top for Buzz Lightyear cosplay.

I like him. He does his job and makes the school the best he can make it. There is nothing wrong with strict thats why the school is so good.

When strictly talking about the job requirements, Mr. McNamara does his job and is good at it. Also, he'd be a nice guy on the street but is awful as an administrator. He doesn't seem to care one bit for the students and rarely makes the effort to get to know any of them. He goes out of his way to discipline people for petty things. He is way too excessive in discipline (threatened a friend detention for greeting another friend at lunch 'too loudly'), but easy to make fun of (Buzz Lightyear)

Buzz Lightyear is a bad person. His only redeeming quality is being easily made fun of. Oh, did I say Buzz Lightyear...?

I've only had to deal with him once but overall he seems like he's doing his job. Most people I know just make fun of him.

He's very, very nice to students who don't question him, don't talk to him, or don't get in trouble. He doesn't seem to respect students' opinions, which is disheartening.

He may not be the coolest guy in the world, but I think that MacNamara makes a genuine effort. He at least wants to do a good job...
