    my daughter went to the school and graduated in 2011 She still has not received her diploma.They will not return my calls when i leave messages about getting it or how much their so called school dues are. My daughter was in there IEP class and they did NOT TEACH her what she needed to learn. And the teachers and the principal at the time was not friendly at all....

    Students are focused on learning and administration holds high expectations of all. The current administration has really turned the school around.

    Northampton County East seems to be a school that cares about children. They will give your child many opportunties to succeed. The principal is one who believes that children come first.

    I believe the teachers at Northampton-East are not trained enough to educate the children in a way so they will succeed academically and personally.

    Northampton county schools need to have teachers that are trained in special needs students theacher ate the conway middle school are not trained to handel these students with ADD/ADHD and other disabilities something needs to be done to help these children. Work shops that last longer the on weeks training the have no idea how to teach these kids they would rather kick them out of class or remove them from the schools all together.
