High Standards: Teachers and students will strive to reach higher, go farther and do more than is expected. We hold each other accountable to do our best.

Projects: Students will benefit from rigorous and relevant projects based learning experiences, including short term projects done in class and our extended magnet projects program. Projects will use technology, research, data, and have a written component, creating a product, presentation, or performance in a way that allows students to demonstrate 21st Century Skills.

The mission of Northeast Magnet High School is to provide a four-year program of studies for students who want to focus their education in Science, Visual Arts, or Law/Public Service.
