Northeast is not a place where you get put down or are told "no", but rather the place where you're always encouraged to push and move further. Reach for the stars, don't just look at them!

Northeast Highschool is a very diverse and large highschool. Which is why the school is divided into various small learning community. I can only speak from a magnet student's perspective.
In NEHS , you can meet people from all background. We have kids from over 60 countries, everyone holds a different story.
NEHS is a great school for students who are motivated and want to succeed. Opportunites are there, and it's up for them to grab. Due to the size of our school, teachers cannot keep tab on all students. Teachers will support capable students to take the most rigorous course load the students desire. They will not limit students to reach their fullest potential. For students who can't discipline themselves, NEHS is not the best environment. NEHS is huge, there are peers that will bring you up but there also are peers who will take you down. Here, students need decide who to surround themselves with. The value of NEHS is decide by how much a student wishes to make out of it.
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!
