Northeast Middle school has been extremely sub-par in the last few years, but this year there has been the addition of The Academic Academy. It is a school within a school at Northeast Middle, and it has drawn the greatest young minds in the system. This addition has significantly changed the environment and academic excellence at the school. It also has a wonderful new principal ,and we owe much of the school's current success to her.


Posted November 28, 2010

this school was showen to have a teacher to student ratio of 15... My daughter has no less that 25 in all 6 classes so just how many teachers are teaching and how many are just there for a head count.
