An excellent small school environment for my child. In additon to academic content, it also provides opportunities for language immersion in several countries, exposes children to international careers, provides individual and group support for students and allows students to accelerate on an individual basis.

This school is great. Although it had an issue a few years ago, it is getting better. Especially with the improved music and academics. I'll miss it when I graduate.

As an alumni I can attest that Northeastern Academy seeks excellence and achieves it. Through its programs and studies, it assists students in reaching their goals in life and a little extra. The staff is wonderful and students can learn from them as people and teachers.

I had a great time at this school. I learned alot by being taught by the teachers there. If you looking for a good school that is focused on seventh day adventist religion this is the school for you, but I must say that the extracurricular activities was lacking when I went as well but there was other things to do.

I am a former student of this school and know it to be an institution of higher learning that is rooted and grounded in christ. While the extraciricullar activities did have rrom for improvement, I feel that this is an overall need of our denomination considering the observance of the sabbath on days that traditionally are used by other teams for competiton.

I do not like this High School. It requires more safety and a more sophisticated and austere discipline code. Most students are not focused on their education and are more focused on basketball and Myspace. The school needs more staff members as well as supervision to watch the students and ensure optimum safety. There should be more empasis on education and on physical recess activities and a bit less of spiritual emphasis. Students occasionally talk during class periods making it unfair to those who wish to learn and make abundant achievements in their life. This school, as you can evaluate from my description, is unsatisfactory and I wish this school would improve for the future students and teachers who attend and are associated with the school.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
