Lincoln Northeast High School Reviews

Lincoln Northeast is like a small community within a larger city and treats everyone with respect. Lincoln Northeast promotes a family type atmosphere - such as if your parents graduated from Lincoln Northeast, more than likely you will graduate from Lincoln Northeast and may even return to teach or coach at the school. With the enrollment being lower than most other schools in Lincoln NE, created a variety of opportunities to become involved in various clubs and activities and participating in your favorite sport.
Lincoln Northeast is located in an older part of the city which does create a smaller area for parking and having older facilities. When parking is not available, students are walking from side streets or even forced to bring the city bus to school. Parking was a major my senior year. Another area of improvement could be the availability of more learning opportunities and more teachers available to provide tutoring when necessary.

Overall, school spirit, pride in achievements, & diversity throughout the school are some of the strengths here. A lot of the teachers are great and are willing to help, though others may have less favorable ways of adjusting their methods to fit how students learn. Things that could be improved is attention to other extracurricular activities aside from sports, leniency towards diff or AP students, and safety procedures. What I really appreciate is the constant effort in helping students prepare for college and be as successful as they can, providing info about various scholarships, college visits, volunteer opportunities, workshops, and more. Overall, my experience at Lincoln Northeast is pretty good, though definitely not perfect. It will be something I will miss once I graduate, along with the people I developed great bonds with and the activites I identified myself with.
I enjoyed going to Northeast! I felt like on occasion the teachers were more concerned with difficult students over my education, which was definitely frustrating. It was a good experience overall thanks to some specific caring teachers and staff.
