Lincoln Northeast High School opened in 1941 with students from Bethany, Havelock and Jackson high schools. The idea for Northeast came about through the vision of five civic clubs in the Bethany, Havelock and University Place neighborhoods. There are over 20,000 Northeast High graduates still carrying on the LNE tradition and former Rockets now live in all 50 states.
The Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools has raised money for programs at Northeast that go beyond what tax dollars support, programs that enrich students’ learning and enhance the curriculum. Alum Ken Jones has donated money to ramp up Project Lead the Way, a pre-engineering program which hopes to encourage all students to pursue science as a career. The Reeder-Mueller Scholarship for Northeast seniors was one of the first scholarships established at the Foundation for LPS.
