Middle School Principal's Message

Mr. Zack Dobbelaere, Principal

Mr. Zack Dobbelaere, Principal


Students and Parents,

On behalf of the teachers and staff of Northeastern Middle School, we would like to welcome you to the 2023-24 school year.  We hope that you have had a relaxing and restful summer break and are now ready to begin a new school year. 

Middle school is an exciting and rewarding period in a student's life. However, just like anything else in life, the effort you put in determines what you get out of it. Therefore, we encourage every student to come prepared to learn every day.  We also encourage each student to get involved while at NEMS.  Please feel free to join a club, participate in sports, participate in the arts, attend dances, games, and all other school activities. 

At NEMS, we pride ourselves on our strong academic standards.  We also strive to provide a safe and caring environment for all students to learn at their highest level.  The staff at Northeastern Middle School is dedicated to student success and will go above and beyond to help each student in any way possible. At NEMS, our students SOAR: Show Respect, Own their Actions, Accept Differences, and Realize their Potential. By demonstrating these attributes daily, they are not only showing success as students at NEMS, they are preparing for a successful life in high school and beyond! We encourage parents, staff, and students to consistently use this language to reinforce what it means to be a Jet.

If at any time you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact any of our dedicated and professional staff members. Education is extremely important and is most successful when the students, parents, and teachers work together as one team.  Again, welcome back, and let’s have a great school year!
