When I was a student at Northeast High School, I was part of their Magnet program and I honestly liked it a lot! All of the teachers worked really hard to teach us and I have made so many friends that still stuck with me through my first year of college. If you are considering going to Northeast, I recommend joining the Magnet Program!
At Northeast High School, there was a lot of diversity. Students came from all over the world. We're the largest and most diverse high school in Philadelphia. Many of the students join clubs and/or they play sports. As far as academics go, we have magnet and IB programs. Northeast prepared me for the future because I have 2 industry certifications in Adobe softwares. As part of the program we have called AVID, we're required to take classes based on technology. At the end of each year we take an exam to get certified. I'm taking 3 more certification exams later this year, which the teachers have prepared me for. As far as students and safety go, everyone is friends. Nobody really has problems with anybody and everyone helps each other out.
Its a very great school. It's very diverse, has many clubs and sports you could join, and also has a staff that tries to get students more involved. They try to prepare us for college and invites many different colleges to the school to give us more information. My counselor for my SLC is very informative and helpful to go to for advice--whether it's college or just about something personal. It's a great environment, the only thing I would improve is the attitude towards the students who are not in an SLC. I am in Magnet SLC and in order to get in this program you must have great grades. They treat the other students who are not in an SLC differently, and I'm sure it's disheartening for them. They don't always get the same compliments or advantages that students who are in an SLC are able to get. We all are in school to succeed, so they should work on giving ALL students great advantages for college trips, assemblies, and other things like that.
