WHY Choose Comstock NEMS?

There are plenty of reasons to choose Northeast Middle School, but here are just a few:

  • NEMS is small enough to know every student well, but big enough to offer many opportunities for our students.

  • We have a diverse student body where kids learn that friends don't look alike, but they quite often think alike.

  • Our school offers many athletic programs for anyone who is interested; sports help develop great habits which our participants will take with them into the future!

  • Our Project Lead The Way offerings provide amazing opportunities to cultivate critical thinking

  • Planning is underway for a $14 million dollar upgrade to make our building a safer and more comfortable place for learning.
