    I have a 17 year old daughter that attends NEJ and I can honestly that she truly loves it. he is in the high school band here and has been for the past three years. And let me tell you something NEJ Tiger Pride Marching and Symphonic Winds Bands are fontastic and the band director Mr. Stringer is awesome! These kids can turn a football field into something MAJOR! They can really put on a show. But that is not all the teachers are awesome as well. I am very pleased with NEJ I couldn't ask for a better school. They have great leaders. D. Adams

    Northeast has provided my children with a quality education along with many opportunities that they would not find in a private school setting. The fine arts division is wonderful and high quality. I feel when I leave my children at school I have left them in a well-supervised environment and well socialized atmosphere. The principal has placed a high priority on academics and gives his utmost support in the activities that the students undertake.
