This school is not a good school if you have a special needs child. The teachers do not want to take the extra time needed to work with a special needs child. They are disorganized and never have a clear answer on anything. I'm glad to know they have a great higher education program but if you're child needs help with their education do not send them to northeast.

Well maintained school in established residential neighborhood. Teachers and staff are responsive to child's and parent's needs. High Ablility Learning program offers opportunities to maximize educational experience. It is evident that students are motivated and happy to be a part of this school. No matter when I'm at the school you can count on smiling faces from students and staff.

Older school with first rate staff and teachers. Not only do the teachers get to know you, but the staff and principal make every effort to get to know the kids and parents. High Ability Learner program is very good. Building is well maintained and is located in a nice, older neighborhood.
