McNair Junior High School is located at 5000 Pulaski Pike in Huntsville, Alabama, and shares a campus with Mae Jemison High School.  The school was established at the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year and was created from the consolidation of the former Davis Hills Middle and Ed White Middle.  McNair Junior High was originally housed at 3221 Mastin Lake Road.  

The school is named in memory of shuttle astronaut, Ronald E. McNair, who tragically died when STS Challenger exploded upon lift off on January 28, 1986.
