Principal's Message

Dear Northeast Families,

Welcome to the Northeast Magnet School of Global Studies. More then ever we are living in a time of globalization both in how we communicate and do business. Students need to be aware of how the world around them looks and operates. The ease in which technology allows us to communicate with any corner of any continent is the catalyst behind a “Global” approach to instruction. Northeast's use of interdisciplinary lessons, which connect Math, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies to globally thematic topics, reinforces concepts and satisfies this need to understand and appreciate world cultures. Here children are given the opportunity to make connections between living and learning. Meaningful and enriching experiences will facilitate academic, social and emotional success.

At Northeast each grade level will be assigned to study a specific area of the globe. All students will have an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding and knowledge of what they have learned. The kindergarten will be studying North America. Our first grade will cover South America. Second graders research Africa. Third graders are assigned to Australia. Fourth graders investigate Asia and fifth graders take on Europe. Each grade level has presentations framed around the information and learning of their designated continent or world region. All of these projects will be intertwined throughout the year to reinforce the curriculum.

Northeast is dedicated to exceeding standards and challenging our students to succeed academically. The reputation of the Northeast staff is one based on nurturing and high standards. Our PTA and SAT work tirelessly to bring new resources and opportunities to our school. We welcome all ideas and support. Collectively, our Northeast community is based on trust and respect. Staff, parents, students and all other stakeholders work very closely to build on Northeast's successes and enhance its magnet theme.

On behalf of the entire school we wish you all a wonderful year. Come discover what Northeast can offer you. I can be reached by email or (973)509-4242.

Warm regards,

Dr. Gail Clarke
Principal
Northeast School
