Welcome to the Northeastern Jr/Sr High School where “Student achievement is the driving force behind all of our decisions.” Our school consists of 640 students enrolled in grades 7-12. We have been growing but still remain small enough to touch the lives of all students.
Recently Northeastern Jr/Sr High School received two grants from the Indiana Department of Education that allowed the school to begin the transition to a digital curriculum in a blended learning environment. This allowed all students to receive an iPad. The changing landscape of the world’s information from analog form to digital form will certainly require today’s student to have a different set of skills than what was required just a decade ago. Future graduates must not be equipped with just the three R’s, but also must be equipped with 21st Century Skills of problem solving, critical thinking, communication, and technological literacy. Students will need to be able to quickly and accurately find answers to questions, synthesize information, communicate and collaborate with colleagues--not just in their own office, but also with a global community of colleagues and customers. Together with parents and community members, Northeastern Jr/Sr High School wants to help students develop the skills and knowledge necessary to responsibly navigate through this emerging modern world.
Our high standard of performance is also verified by the fact that approximately 74 percent of the graduating seniors have been accepted to college. In addition, we have a 91.0% graduation rate, approximately 41% of our seniors achieve an academic honors diploma, and approximately 84% of our seniors achieve a Core 40 diploma. We are definitely proud of our most recent accomplishments, but we are still striving to become an even better school that desires to prepare all students to be successful.
While this is the part of your child’s life that they are learning to become independent please remember that your child cannot do this by themself; adults are needed to guide and direct your child and our student. Stay involved in your child’s education! Ask questions! And stay in touch; we need your help in order to do the best for all students.
If you have any questions, please call me at 765-847-2591.
|Why are we moving to Digital Instruction?|
|“We teach today’s students in a 19th century agrarian system, using a 20th century industrial curriculum, and then send them out into a 21st century digital world. There’s a disconnect here. We have to change the system and that’s why we should care about innovation.” Scott Montgomery - 2006|
