10 Parent Reviews for Northeast Elementary School

An excellent school with a very kind and caring staff. The school is an international studies magnet so there is wide diversity and a focus on more than just the USA. Children appreciate the world they live in. Academically they are well prepared for middle school.

The courses of study are approached in a unique learning environment. The grade levels 'team up' and focus on world study. The after school enrichment activities and the {JOBS} the children are exposed support the theme.
