3 generations of my immediate family graduated from Northeast.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 31, 2005

If you want your child to learn and grow in an environment that encourages personal opinions and individualism, Do not look into Northeast. As a graduating senior this year I have seen three separate principals run this school. The first was my freshman year and the school was fine. The second principal I had through junior year was okay. He developed a lot of weird confusing rules that were so broad that each administrator could basically define the rule his/ her own way to fit their needs. But this year, the principal here has gone way too far in supressing individualism and opinions. He wants us all to be the same and to conform to his ideas. Thank gawd I'm graduating. Many of you would believe that I'm just deciding to vent on my school because of petty disagreements, to you I say good luck.

I actually am a student at Lincoln Northeast, and I love my school. The building may be out of date, but that is just the shell of a community of dedicated pupils.

All three of my children are Northeast graduates. This school often gets a bad rep although that is not at all accurate. The teachers are compassionate and really inspire students to learn and reach their goals. I would recommend this school in a heartbeat!

About the tests
