Principal’s Note

The weeks continue to move quickly this time of year!  Families, we encourage you to reach out and be in communication with your student’s teachers and ensure they are on-track to finish the year strong.  This is particularly true for our seniors!  If there are any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to teachers, counselors, case managers, or grade-level admin.

Take care!

Student Spotlight

NEHS has a variety of CTE programs, and each year, we have students graduate as program completers.  These seniors have completed between 2 and 3 credits of coursework in their chosen pathway, earned multiple College Now credits, and had hours of hands-on experience in labs and practical applications.  This year, NEHS has 41 CTE program completers graduating over six different programs.  Check back each week as we highlight different programs.  Well done, students!
