    What classes will I take in the magnet I select?logo
    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.

    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?logo
    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.

    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.

    Yes, but not at Northeast!
