Principal's Message

  • Mr. Valachovic and studentsWelcome to the Northeast High School website and our Incredible School!

    It is an amazing honor serving Oakland Park and surrounding communities as the Principal of Northeast High School. We are anxious to see what will happen during the 2020-2021 school year. We are looking forward to all the great accomplishments that our staff and students will make this year.

    We are very excited about the three magnet themes in our Academies of ExcellenceAlternative Energy has joined our award-winning Latin and Industrial Biotechnology programs. These three programs will continue to provide a rigorous college preparatory curriculum for our high-performing students. The Latin Academy has been recognized as the Best Latin Program in the state of Florida several times in the past 20 years. Northeast High School was recognized by Magnet Schools of America as a Magnet School of DistinctionNational Award of Merit, for the second year in a row! We may have a limited number of Magnet Seats available and we also have a few reassignment seats if you are interested in becoming a Hurricane.

    Northeast High School is making great strides with the Cambridge International Program. This Innovative Program is rich in history, rigor, and tradition. Our students have done a phenomenal job on their Cambridge AICE exams. We now have several students that have earned a Cambridge Diploma which will provide them a full Brite Futures Scholarship.

    Renovations and new construction are still hot topics at Northeast. Our construction partners have recently set up their office space and will be starting work on building 12 (weight room, locker rooms, and classrooms) and building 3 (culinary arts lab and STEM lab). We are excited to witness the construction of a NEW 25-classroom addition in 2021, a new weight room, new football locker room, renovations to all existing buildings that include new STEM-labs, new roofs, life safety, new air-conditioning, new chiller, and new air-handlers. The plan also outlines the demolition of several old buildings throughout the campus.

    I wanted to congratulate the students in the Class of 2020 that left an amazing legacy with dignity and grace! Our virtual graduation and parade brought tears to everyone’s eyes as we remembered all the great times we shared over the years. We wish them all the best with their future aspirations.

    Make your four years at Northeast the most memorable by building a transcript that reflects high achievement and a well-rounded resume full of leadership experiences for your future. Northeast Hurricanes will continue to Strive for Excellence in all facets of the High School Experience. Go Canes!
