At Northeast, we don't believe our obligation to our students' education ends when they graduate. To that end, each year Northeast's Scholarship Committee provides graduating seniors with approximately $25,000.00 of awards. These awards go to individuals going on to further education, into the work force, or into the military. These funds come from alumni, friends, and family of Northeast (there are many memorial scholarships - a wonderful, lasting tribute to someone who has passed away) and from area businesses. We have our own school-based application and awards criteria. In addition to our Northeast funds, we endeavor to help our students apply for outside scholarship and award monies, and in recent history, those amounts awarded have averaged well over $150,000.00 a year.
Scholarship Application Deadline March 30, 2018

The Northeast Metro Tech School District was formed in an agreement adopted by an overwhelming mandate of the voting populace of 12 Massachusetts communities in 1964. It was originally formed by an informal agreement to work toward a common goal – a regional vocational school offering a variety of vocational and technical courses which no one of the 12 communities could have afforded on its own.
The District stretches from the coast inland to the picturesque Mystic Valley and encompasses about 70 miles of the Commonwealth’s North Shore, stretching into Suffolk, Middlesex and Essex Counties.
Northeast Metro Tech High School is a four year public regional vocational high school. The Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational School District is comprised of 12 communities North of Boston which send us students of diverse social, cultural, economic, and educational backgrounds. Understanding diversity we strive to provide services and programs to meet students needs in the areas of vocational, academic, physical, social, ethical, moral, and emotional development.
Northeast operates on a rotating block schedule that alternates between academic and vocational studies weekly. Total enrollment is approximately 1250 students. After a Vocational Exploratory Program in grade 9, students select from seventeen different vocational areas. Beginning in the last quarter of the 9th grade, student will select a career path that results in the attainment of a Certificate of Vocational Proficiency and a High School Diploma. All students must meet the State requirement of the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System testing to earn a High School Diploma. Honors classes are offered in all major academic areas. Rank in class is computed for all students at the end of the junior year using weighted grades. All subjects are included in the computation except Physical Education and Resource Center (Pass/Fail). Final rank is determined at the end of the senior year on the same basis.
Northeast Metro Tech serves the communities of:
Chelsea, Malden, Melrose, North Reading, Reading, Revere, Saugus, Stoneham, Wakefield, Winchester, Winthrop, and Woburn.
