    I am a student at North East High School, it isn't the best or worst school. It is a little under funded, so most of the funding goes to actual instruction, which is why the school needs renovations, which a complete revamp and remodel is due to happen sometime in the 2030's, but simple repairs are being done as things go wrong. There are 3 world languages, French, German, and Spanish. Many sports, and many art/music classes. Bullying isn't much of an issue depending on who you are, if you're the type of person that causes problems, then you'll have problems, but if you keep to your self and with your friends, and don't pick fights, argue, etc, you'll be fine. Even being gay isn't a problem here, I know a lot of gay people, and they are usually the most popular students. Some class sizes are big, and some are small. I once had a class with almost 30 kids, and another class with less than 15. If you are considering this school, I recommend it! It is a great school! The staff are friendly and caring to students and parents, there are also many programs, etc for students with disabilities.

    This school has a bad rep and I don't personally go here but if you had a chance I don't recommend it. The bullying rate is just terrible! I have so many friends that experienced brutal bullying from other students and it is absolutely heart breaking. I hope one day this school realizes the affect it has their students and makes a change as soon as possible! Im hoping to start a change in this school.

    My kids have went through this school and have all graduated. The school is okay...I wouldn't say its the best but it is not the worst. The band and some sports are very good but then again some sports like football they lack the strength. The school could use some new renovations but its nice on the outside. The teachers are very willing to work with the students and get to know then. A couple years ago the school was almost put on lock down due to the number of fights and unruly children. Then a new principal came in and its been getting better. The bullying level is kind of high witch is a problem. Were hoping the school has a turn around but its still a okay school.

    NEHS overall is a good school. They have good accerlated programs and the teachers are really good, so far from my experince from the past two years. However, the way they handle the Athletics is below respectable. Its obvious that there isn't much care in this area. If your child is a strong athlete, I would reconsider.

    Overall, the school itself is pretty good. It will be great when the renovations are done. The school board regulations is anouther story. I certainly don't won't my child to grow up with the many excuses the school has about suspending students or gving the studnets an MIP (in school suspension)This is the reason many young people drop out of school to get a GED. The students feel as if they are in jail. No student is treated as an individual. They are all treated as the worst student from the past. Great pleasure will be felt when your child graduates from school

    One of the best High Schools in Cecil County. Great music programs.

    I'd have to say that NEHS isn't as bad as people make it seem. It's so easy to find your classes, with the general layout of the school. Teachers are great, and students are just alright, there's a few delinquents, but every school has that. Things keep getting better, students just need to stop thinking materialistic. It's not about the look of the school, it's the education you get in it. And i'd have to say the education is fine.

    I couldn't possibly give any stars for this school! I substitute teach there and it's a terrible environment for students. There isn't enough books for all the students, and some classes (such as Fresh) don't even have books for the class.

    Although I am not a parent of a student attending North East High School, I am a product of the school who had a weighted GPA of 4.21. This high school has a diminishing quality of academics. Therefore, I decided to go to Cecil Community College for my senior year to rack up credits. I was able to graduate with 28 credit hours. I hope my experience will give someone else insight to the reality of the acclaimed 'great academic quality' that the Cecil County School System brags.

    North East High School, North East, MD. is a very active environment. I am the Grand Father of a 15 yr. old Freshman. She plays four sports, is a Honor Society Student, has lots of great friend. Clearly the new Principle has made a difference. What I see is the Students who have parental support clearly are more successful.

    Norty East High is a school with so many different backgrounds. The violence is pretty bad. This school was steps away from being declared unsafe. A new principal was brought in and it has become a little better. Some reports of violence are not being reported though.The kids that are a part of the fighting are football players, skateboarders, bookworms, almost every type of kid has their moments. The violence is not from one specific group of kids. The mentality is one of a very roughneck group. The staff seems to be split in half. They either get along with the majority of the kids and can get through to them or they are hated by all.The buses are very scarry, kids are completely out of control.
