Is Northeast right for me?
Students who want an academically challenging curriculum come to NEM.
Students highly interested in one of the magnet areas and are planning to attend college do well at NEM.
What classes will I take in the magnet I select?
NEM offers many of the same courses you would find at any school (Math, English, History...). But NEM has many courses that other high schools don't have. See the flowcharts on the link below to see the sequence of classes for each magnet area. This page also has our program of studies which has short descriptions of each class NEM offers. Check out our Magnet Class Flowcharts and Course Information Page
A dress code is enforced, but uniforms are not part of it. (please see the student handbook)
Freshman and Sophomore students cannot leave campus during the day, which includes lunch. Juniors and Seniors may leave for lunch, but they MUST be back on time or they will receive a lunch detention.
Math Placement Concerns?
Most Freshmen start with Algebra I; however, higher placement options are available. NEM does not offer any math courses less than Algebra I!
Students wishing to enter Algebra I without a course titled Pre-Algebra may do so if they know the times table thoroughly (one through 12), know the elements of working with variables (X-6=17; solve for X), are willing to concentrate and work with the teacher as the course progresses.
How are we different from other high schools?
Focused study: Each magnet area has an extremely focused courses that allows students to truly explore the material.
Projects: Each student completes a specific magnet area project each year, requiring research, writing, data-collection, use of technology, and presentation skills.
Daily Schedule: Students will have five, 75-minute periods each day that rotate on an A/B schedule. However, most English, math and AP classes meet everyday.
Progress Reports: Grades are available 24/7 online through ParentView and StudentView.

What about band or orchestra?

Within each magnet area, students have an array of elective options. Students may take electives across magnet areas if space is available. Additional options include vocal music, drama, French, Spanish, computer technology & Marine JROTC.
Home Economics, Child Development, Marketing, Fashion, Auto Repair, Construction, Business and many other elective classes are NOT offered at NEM. Students that want these course should seriously consider attending their base school.
Are sports an option?
Yes, but not at Northeast!
Students may play interscholastic sports at their base schools (the high school they would have attended). A bus after school takes students to their base school for practice. They are responsible for transportation after practice. Over 80 students return to their base school to participate in sports.
