Northeast High School Magnet Programs

  • THE LATIN SCHOOL, The basis for the Latin School comes from the oldest institution to bear this designation, Boston Latin School founded in 1635. This institution is a public school which bases its curriculum on the classical formation of its students seeking university entrance and the professions that would serve the good of society: law, medicine, the arts, and sciences. Northeast's Latin School offers an enriched classical education that promotes strong academic achievement and intellectual curiosity. Students have the opportunity to study Latin, and within Latin classes, ancient Greek. This program is designed for students who have a desire to go beyond the boundaries of high school studies and embrace the world of arts, literature, history, science, math and technology according to their individual strengths and interests. Students are encouraged to participate in the wide variety of college-level Advanced Placement, AICE Cambridge, and  Dual-Enrollment courses to facilitate their transition to university studies. 

    INDUSTRIAL BIOTECHNOLOGY is a program offering students science credit through an appied science education, to prepare them for entry level positions in the cutting edge industry of Biotechnology. The coursework will focus on developing science and bio-technical skills that are current and in demand for this rapidly growing occupation. This program offers a sequence of courses that provides coherent and rigorous content aligned with challenging academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare for further education and careers in molecular biology.  Content involves learning biochemistry and the lab protocols used in DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), RNA (ribonucleic acid), and proteins. 

    THE ALTERNATIVE ENERGY program allows students to explore the current and emerging alternative energy industry. This program is designed to develop competencies in the areas of energy history and the global impact of renewable and non-renewable resources; engineering; career opportunities; scientific and research concepts; biological and physical science principles; environmental principals; and solar energy safety. Engineering-based activities are an integral part of this program, as are several certifications.
