My daughter has attended this school 6th, 7th, and now 8th grade. She loves it. I've found the teachers and staff to be professional and courteous. She is excelling academically, she was tested and put in the gifted program and is challenged intellectually. The school is very progressive with college prep.

My daughter attended this school for 2 years ,and she loved it! The teachers are absolutely amazing! They go out of their way to make sure your child understands the work they have. I couldn't have asked for a better group of teachers to teach and watch out for my daughter!!

This school is to dramatic. all they seem to care about iis how we act, not how we learn. we geet in trouble from the dumbest things I ever heard. maybe, Northeast should care more about our learning.

My children have been here since the sixth grade. I am not impressed with the disparity of treatment when it comes to discipline of the Minority students as compared to the Caucasian students. It seems to me that it is more important in this school to take discipline extreme more than the students education. For the most part it's not so much the teachers although some of them do it to. It more of a problem at the level above the teachers. You can go to college and get a degree but class room is not "real life" to show you how to deal with students of color. Then again some people where not brought up to learn to deal with people of different nationalities and culture. Hats off to Ringgold elementary school, I did a presentation there for cultural week and they made me feel very welcome. I have yet to see anything cultural at Northeast middle school. Very sad!!!!!!!

This is the best school in Montgomery County everyone here is so friendly. The girls basketball team has gotten better also. I hate the fact that my kida are zoned somwhere else next yr but I'm not going to let them go anywhere else because this is a great school and I'd hate for them to go to one of those racist and rude schools in Montgomery County.

My daughter has attended Northeast Middle School from 6th Grade and will finish 8th grade this May 10. We are a Military Family and we have moved her from school to school and Northeast Middle School is by far one of the best schools she has attended. My younger daughter attends Northeast Elementary school and that is also an excellent school. They have constant parent teacher involvement. I can contact a teacher anytime via email. She also has AP math and science classes. Her AP teachers send home via email a summary of each weeks lesson plans and they call everyones homes with a message from the principal from everything from a Snow Day message to a message letting parents know report cards were sent home or will be sent home. As far as their extra-curricular programs, they have a wide variety.

I completed sixth and seventh grade at the school. I used to be horrible at math. When I went the NEMS, my math grade went high up. I actually went to advanced math. The teachers are great. I was able to actually be friends with the teachers. They're kind. I was also able to go to advanced science and english.

I've completed my 6th and 7th grade year at this school and loved it. The teachers are strict, but fair. They work very hard to make sure you do not fall behind. I personally think this school is excellent!

NEMS is a great school, I've completed all 3 years of Middle school there, and loved every moment. If you re worried about discipline issues, they discipline there students fairly. ~Brandon McCoy

My daughter attended this school upon our arrival from dodds in germany. I was very nervous about her attending a public school. At dodds schools (because of its location on the military installations) i felt that she was safe and the environment was better controlled. After only weeks in attendance at northeast middle school, i knew that i could expect nothing less of this school. She was made to feel very safe; especially at a time when trauma/danger entered our usa schools. The academic studies, faculty and administrative staff exceeded my expecations of a public middle school. We had the opportunity to return to germany where i knew that she didn't want to leave in and had acheive so many great accomplishments; however, based on her experience at northeast middle school, she did not want to return to germany and looked for to attending northeast high school. Great job nems!
