Teachers and Staffs are great! From my experiences, they are all incredibly helpful and caring for their students. They can be very lenient on the students and would often give multiple warnings before a serious punishment is applied. The school environment was not the best. Although teachers, friends, and staffs are very nice to get along with, there are often times when fights would break out and use of profanity against teachers by the students. Other than the "not the best" environment , the school was a great experience for me.
Review Northeast High School
Northeast High a School is an academic institution with so much potential, but little administrative drive. The kids who attend, are seriously so smart, but with no push these kids are stuck most of the times. You have a great athletic atmosphere, but you'll never see support from the principals or admins at the games. The teachers are really so great, but again the administration makes their jobs so hard that they're stuck between a rock and a hard place most of the time. I went there and I loved majority of my experience, but many things that were promised went under the rug. My graduating class did not have a Junior Prom, we weren't given incentives that most classes had (their excuse was money but it was a little shady), and we had no support with anything we wanted to accomplish. The schools is great with diversity, you learn so much just from your friends and the people you meet, the teachers are great (Lucarini is the best) but the food is Grade E for "edible".
Northeast high school is a very great environment to grow. The great thing about attending a big school is that you have the opportunity to meet different people. Over the course of my high school career I would say I meet a lot of great friends in which even today I still talk to. Depending on what SLC you end up joining your learning experience will be different. I was int the techology SLC and from my experience, what they teach you is very up to date and the things I learned in high school I still remember and use today. Another great thing about the school is the clubs and activities they have available for students. I was always involved and being involved in clubs and activities really gives you a better experience, especially what they have to offer at Northeast High School.
