Northeast High School is a comprehensive 9-12 school. The four-story structure was built in 1914 at a cost of $500,000 and deemed one of the great structures of its time. In 1988, the interior of the building was renovated and a new gymnasium, weight room and locker rooms were constructed on the south side of the building.
During one period of its history, Northeast was considered a magnet themed school-Law, Public Service, and Military (JROTC). Classroom spaces were constructed to support these themes such as a mock courtroom, judge’s chambers and jury room. The interior of the building was renovated in 2014.
At the top of the marble staircase to the second floor is a specially remodeled area which houses the many years of Northeast memorabilia organized by alumni members. Northeast touts one of the largest alumnae groups in the nation.
Today Northeast High School houses a diverse population of nearly 800 students with a teaching staff of 50.
Northeast offers traditional high school courses, Advanced Placement and Dual Credit Courses. Students have opportunities to visit colleges, universities, and other post-secondary institutions and to participate in job shadowing and internships related to their career interests. Off-campus career and technical education programs are available to students during their junior and senior years at the Manual Technical Career Center.
TO NORTHEAST HIGH SCHOOL, I PLEDGE MY LOYALTY AND ALLEGIANCE. I SHALL LIVE FOR MY SCHOOL WITH HONOR IN BOTH WORD AND ACT. I SHALL GIVE THE FULLEST OF MY STRENGTH, THE BEST OF MY THOUGHT, THE TRUEST OF MY CONSCIENCE, AND THE WHOLE OF MY SPIRIT. IN VICTORY OR DEFEAT, I SHALL KEEP THE FAITH.
