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.

Bring plenty of snacks, food, and drink for the bus ride to and from the park. Please have a 1-2 bottles of water for the ride home because you will be dehydrated. Your snacks stay on bus because Cedar Point will not let enter the park with food.
