Principal's Message

  • Mr. Valachovic and students

     

    Welcome 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 2021-2022 school year when we are all back in school for face to face teaching and learning. 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 Excellence. Alternative 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 again recognized by Magnet Schools of America as a Magnet School of Distinction, National Award of Merit! We do have a limited number of Magnet and Reassignment seats available if you are interested in becoming a Hurricane. Please visit: https://webapp.browardschools.com/onechoiceproject/studentsearch.aspx to request a seat at our incredible school (school number is 1241).

    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 have had many students the past two years earn the prestigious Cambridge AICE Diploma which will provide them a full Brite Futures Scholarship for college.

    Renovations and new construction are still hot topics at Northeast. Our construction partners have recently completed half of building 12 (brand new weight room) building 3 (culinary arts lab and STEM lab), building 2 (new chiller), and building 1 (main office, guidance, and 30+ classrooms) renovations are underway. The tilt-wall construction of a NEW 25-classroom addition will break ground in the fall of 2021. The 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 will be underway soon. The plan also outlines the demolition of several old buildings throughout the campus.

    I wanted to congratulate the students in the Class of 2021 that left an amazing legacy with dignity and grace! Our 2021 Graduation Ceremony in the Northeast Stadium was amazing and 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 Hurricanes!
