    Health & Safety: At my school I feel safe when it comes to security. There are sometimes issues between students, but usually those are the troubled students and those issued are handled as soon as possible.

    Extracurriculars: In Northeast High School, we strive to be the best that we could possibly be. Our sports teams almost always win their major sporting events and take home the trophy. Our other extracurricular activities, such as the robotics club, win their competitions and add the ability for non-athletic students to participate.

    Overall Experience: I thoroughly enjoyed the years I've spent at Northeast High School. I've made many friends with other students, as well as my teachers. I've changed as a person throughout the years and became a part of many extracurricular activities for my school. I would definitely choose to go to this school again if I could because I loved every year of my schooling, whether it be in the classroom working with teachers, or at the lunch table having a good time with my friends.

    Teachers: Upon entering my senior year of Northeast High School, I have come to know some great teachers over the years. Most of the teachers I had went above and beyond with their skills in the classroom by giving engrossing yet educational lessons. As I'm coming to an end of my schooling at Northeast High School, there will definitely be teachers and classes in which I'll miss being in. Overall, my experience with teachers at Northeast was great.
