Northeast is a well rounded great school. I think it might be one of the best in the City of Philadelphia. Even though it might have a few flaws it’s still a great learning environment, especially in the Magnet Program. Throughout my four years I’ve met many amazing people. I was taught by amazing teachers who truly care about you and your education and I’ve had plenty of fun at school event like the Thanksgiving game or the Talent Show. If I had to make the choice on which high school I would attend,I would pick Northeast again!

I love going to Northeast High School. The environment, staff, and diversity in this school is truly amazing. Northeast High School offers many opportunities and experiences. There are clubs for everyone, we have the Spanish Club, Chess Club, Debate, Muslim Club, almost any you can think of, and even ones you never thought of. As well as clubs, there is almost every single kind of sport offered at Northeast High School, golf, swimming, badminton, football. I feel that as a Northeast Viking I get the full high school experience. I get the opportunity to learn about and surround myself amongst people with different religions, political beliefs, ethnicities, some who come from different countries, and have different stories. I love and appreciate how diverse my school is. My only complaint would be how hard it is sometimes learning about the different experiences Northeast offers. I want any Viking to take advantage of the many wonderful things Northeast has to give.
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.
