I personally go to Northeast High school and I feel as though this school is very safe and the Teachers there work very hard to help you for a better tomorrow. If you'd send your child to any school Northeast should be one of the top schools.

I think they focus way too much on FCAT to raise their grade level and not enough on normal curriculum. Our children still need reading writing and math to succeed in this world.

This school has many problems. They start at the top with lack of good management from the principal. Some of the administrators are far a field and don't address or want to hear about the discipline problems. Many classes are weak because of these problems. This is why this is a D/F school.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
