Northeast High School

Key Challenges to Student Success

  • The students who attend Northeast High School are influenced daily by events, situations, and circumstances that occur at home and in their neighborhood.  While there are numerous factors that contribute to student achievement at Northeast High, the school leadership team has narrowed its focus to the following challenges to student success, with the acknowledgement that this is not an all-inclusive list and that some students may be affected by other opportunities or issues in their young lives.

    This school's key challenges to student success are also noted in the boxes shown below.

  • Traditional MSDE and/or school-based student challenges

    • PARCC Math Assessment data
    • PARCC Reading Assessment data

    During the 2017-2018 school year, Overlook was a AAA school. For the 2018-2019 school year, we are a Targeted Title I school with approximately 40% of our students who are FARM students. We also have an increase in ESOL students. Our ESOL student was allotted .5 for the 2017- 2018 school year and .7 for the current school year, 2018- 2019.

    Our need for action is reflected by the following data: • On the 2017-2018 PARCC Reading Assessment, 38.6 % of our students in grades 3-5 scored at a PLD 4 or 5. On the 2016-2017 PARCC Reading Assessment, 44.5% of our students in grades in grades 3-5 scored at a PLD 4 or 5. • On the 2017-2018 PARCC Math Assessment, 29.5 % of our students in grades 3-5 scored at a PLD 4 or 5. On the 2016-2017 PARCC Math Assessment, 31.4% of our students in grades in grades 3-5 scored at a PLD 4 or 5. • Of the total enrollment, 12% of the students receive special education services.

  • Non-Traditional Socio-Economic Challenges

    • Socio-Economic Issues (employment, income levels, housing costs)
    • Limited English proficiency for students and/or families

    According to the 2017- 2018 MSDE Staff Survey 77% of the staff reported feeling like they belonged to the school and Overlook continues to engage the Overlook staff to increase collaboration and a sense of team as we support our students, even as new faces come on board.
