    I am a former graduate of Northeast and I presently have children attending the school. The new Principal has set a great tone for the school.He is also giving a lot of young black men something positive to believe in. I feel that the school is truly changing and in time when the school district start to place value in the students in East Macon the quality of teachers students parents and faculty as a whole will improve. Remember it takes action and not talk and slander to change a situation.

    I am a 2003 graduate from Northeast and I agree with most of the comments. Although some of the teachers acted like the students and were only focused on how well you can catch a football or how many miles you could sprint a few were really dedicated to the learning experience. The focus is in the wrong places and it should be in sagging grades not sagging pants. I think that the principal has done a good job with discipline but since that and sports is the main focus it really shows in the attendance and the test scores. I love my Alma Mater but there are major improvements that need to be made.

    I'm a former student of NEHS c/o 04! This school isn't extremely great nor is it bad. Some of the teachers are very good but are overlooked while other teachers are acting more like students than teachers. They have a lot of school spirit but I felt that their priority was more about the athletics than academics. I did enjoy my years there and graduated with honors because I was lucky to get the teachers who were focused on my future instead of whether I could run fast or catch a football.

    I am a student at NEHS c/o 06 and after transfering there from another state i don't feel this is a school where you will get the most out of your education. In my own opinion I don't feel that my education or my well being as a student has been top priority.Contrary to what is said from the faculty of this school there is a very limited amount of faculty that puts a students education at top priority.Now i don't want to put down this school but there's really not that many good things to say about it anyone can tell a child to pull up some pants wear an id and then send you home for a few weeks that sure isn't relaying a good message of stay in school and learn.This school is not a good instructional facility.

    I am not a parent I attend Northeastc/o 08. If it wasn't for Mrs. Carter coming to NEHS I don't know what the school would be like. She has really turned NE around. Her strict and aggressive attitude is good for the students and staff. I congratulate Mrs. Carter for her hard work and dedication to Northeast High Scholl.

    I think overall the school is great but individual teachers care more about personal problems between students than their education and I still attend this school.C/O 05

    I find the comments of recent graduates of Northeast High School unfounded as the test scores at this school have steadily declined over the last 4 years. The number of graduates 'not' receiving true diplomas have also increased hence the Science magnet School is not meeting the goals requisite to the excellence expected or demanded. A real disconnect exists between the administration the teachers and parents as many of the very good teachers have since left NEHS and have distinguished themselves under other administrations. Successes in test scores Science Fair and related competitions including Golden Eagle awards are at a minimum. NEHS has lost its stature among Bibb County and Middle GA High Schools. New administrators and direction are warranted.

    I am not a parent. i'm a formal student from the class of 2002. Northeast is a great school full of tradition and rich history and pride. I would recomment this high school for any upcoming freshman. This school builds confidents and great young people. I am now in the U.S. Navy and still think back to my fun memories Northeast High.

    Well I'm not a parent but I'm a 2003 graduate of Northeast. In my two of having Mrs.Carter as a principal I saw a lot of change in the students and the teacher. If it wasn't for her strick and aggressive attitude the school couldn't have been change and I would just like to say thank you.
