This school has two incredible academies to choose from, the Information Technology and the Finance programs, and I am fortunate my daughter has been in the Information Technology program and is about to start her junior year. The school has great resources and really will help out with any parent questions, as long as you just ask. My daughter is excelling in her academics and fortunately has a vast array of courses to keep her interest. She's found great friends in the band, and your child can succeed if they want to. If they aren't interested in focusing and trying, then you'll get nothing more than a generic education no matter where you go. The shear size of the school means that if your child shows no drive, they are not going to coddled. If your student shows a great deal of effort, the teachers and staff will gladly help your child excel.

My child is a freshman at NEHI, having come from a private school. As an educator who sometimes taught as a substitute at her private school, Northeast seems no less mediocre than anything else in the existential hum-drum of St. Petersburg. During orientation, the guidance counselors were perceptive, the teachers were receptive, and the leaders were thoughtful and approachable. My child has a the opportunity to experience being a part of a major theatrical production, and has surprising, developed friendships with some solidly good middle-class kids -- there are some there! There are good programs there, and I am pleased that my child is in one of the Institutes. Academics? Not so great, as I hear it, but about what one would expect. Parental 'involvement' there seems to about volunteering -- direct questions to one math teacher via email and voice mail, has brought no response.

High school is high school you can't expect to have this perfect school. Bad things will come from everywhere, but I really do love northeast some of the teachers don't care as much as others, but some are great and will help you find a path to the future, may I reccomend the AVID program if you are needing any help or extra support it is for you, they help you find scholor ships and everything, im not attended in it anymore, though it was helpful to many students. The 4x4 is the best and I know the schools going to have a horrible time next year getting used to that, and rushing our classes now. Northeast is actually really strict, more to freshmans than others, such as dress code, and fights on campus get caught immeadity. We have cameras everywhere.. I can't say anything too bad (:

I have a senior and a sophomore at Northeast. They are happy at Nehi, and both are excelling academically. Northeast has a very diverse student body and lots of programs, sports, and clubs to choose from. If your child works hard and studies, he or she will get a great education. If your child is a slacker, unfortunately he or she will find some company at Nehi as well.

This school has made great strides in helping teachers in the classroom through best and guided practices. The principal has given a voice to both teachers and students in the development of a holistic learning environment, conducive to success

It starts from the top. The reason this school gets such low marks and has a terrible reputation isn't because the teachers don't care about the kids or because they don't know how to teach or even because the kids can be more difficult. It's because the administration -from the principle to the assistant principles try their hardest to make this a hostile work environment. It's no secret that they like to flex their muscles and feel the power that they have but the problem is that it is always the to determent of the school environment. Most teachers (if not with the 'in' group) are constantly haggled by the admins which interferes with daily school life - and the students are the ones who ultimately pay the price. If I could give this school a negative rating I would.

Because of a new magnet program building up there--the Todd Center, there has been more challenges in my classes. Plus the 4x4 class schedule system is wonderful! The Math and Science teachers are the best.

The leadership and overall help of the staff/administration is pathetic. I would strongly suggest not attending this school for your child's sake, the students are not taken seriously. My personal recommendation do not attend this school.

From a student point of view, Northeast isn't a bad school. The teachers work day and night to give each student the best education they can get, to help benefit them for the future. I'm not too impressed about the small learning communities. They're supposed to be designed to help direct students attention for the future, from what I see they're restricting the students ability to expand their mind. High school is supposed to be when a student begins to think about what they want to do in life, and open new doors, not separate and limit the students capabilities. Overall Northeast isn't horrible, but it could definitely be better.

As far as I'm concerned, I don't find that staff too helpful, and the students tend to be unruly.

I wish I had known more about this school before I moved my family into the area. My son would have been much better off if I had put him in one of the fine private schools in this area instead. We struggled for 4 years to keep him from learning more bad lessons than good while at this school. There was little help to be had from the school either.

I thought it was a pretty good school, since they have updated it, it is much safer for the kids security wise.

I'm not a parent but I was a student for all 4 years. Northeast has a wonderful principal, Mr. Miller. He was there when I was a freshman & I've learned that our school was no prize before I arrived but he turned it around to be something very special & I can proudly say that I loved my H.S. years! Thanks Mr. Miller!
