Lack of teacher support. Very low test scores across the board. The administration plays the blame game and intimidates good teachers through spies and other methods. This drives good teachers away.
The teachers and staff are wonderful at this school! It amazes me how so many 'grade' a school by diversity. Yes, this school is diverse....Isn't the world!? The majority of staff is very professional and really listens to my childs needs. My child is exceeding in all subjects. I am pleased that my child goes to a school that is 'real life'. Many parents ask me where the best schools are in the area of Charlotte! This is one of them! If I wanted my child to go to one of the 'exceptional' schools with less diversity (which seems to be what most are afraid of) then my child would just be a number instead of an individual!
I've had 2 children at Northeast and their experience has been mixed. Discipline seems to be ok, (except on buses sometimes), but the school's emphasis is definitely not on their high-achieving students. Some of the teachers are wonderful and others are terrible. There is a lack of respect for students by many of the teachers.
I love Northeast Middle School all except the new Principal. I am not fond of him at all.
Now that Mr Switzer has taken over the school. It is a better place for the middle school children. Go Eagles!
Northeast is a great school and is getting better. Mr. Switzer is a wonderful leader with a strong vision for the school. He is always ready and willing to help and support teachersand parents alike. He is very dedicated, and the best principal I have ever worked with.
Both of my children attend this school and I love it. I choose this school in the parent choice selection and I am very glad I did. My children are involved in activities after school and do very well academically. When I have a question, I get my answers. The teachers are personable and work hard at making your child is doing the best they can. I have been very satisfied with my children's performance and I brag as much as I can about the school. Although the renovations are a bit frustrating, the staff is doing everything they can to ensure your child is receiving the education they deserve.
This school is very unorganized and the school overall is very unsanitary. I wouldnt even give this school a 1 star.
Two of my children went through NE or are attending currently. I hope the new principal will do all the he can to help the school.
My daughter just finished 8th grade at this school. She not only excelled, she was never involved or saw any
My son is 13 and in the 7th grade. He has been at northeast middle for four months now and we're in the process of moving just to get him out of there. The high student count is too much for the teachers and staff to handle. The violence is out of control. The teachers spend more time disciplining the children than teaching them. When my son began struggling with his assignments i sent letters to each of his teachers requesting meetings to find a way to improve the situation and not one of them responded. Unless you want your child(ren) to receive a substandard education or be involved in gang related activities i would not recommend this school.
