Northeast Early College (NEC) is a 9-12 traditional, non-charter, public high school, a state accredited Early College and an Institution of Higher Learning under Innovation Status in the Far Northeast area of Denver. Students attend HTEC for two main reasons–They have a passion in one of our seven CareerConnect (Career and Technical Education) Pathways of Business, Graphic Design, Computer Science, Engineering, Robotics, Audio Technology, and Environmental Sustainability/Green Careers which they study for four years AND they see college as a non-negotiable for their future and want to earn as much college credit as possible while working to obtain their high school diploma.

As an Early College, students can even earn their Associate Degree while a student in high school through our partnership with the Community College of Aurora. Students begin college courses as early as second semester of their 9th grade year. At NEC, we are proud to have 8 adjunct professors on our campus providing college-level course work to our high school students. We are also proud of the growth that we have achieved.

We have earned a GREEN rating on the SPF in the area of College and Career Readiness. Not only are we graduating students in the highest numbers ever, they are graduating remediation-free, with college credit, and they are enrolling in and staying in college.

What Values Should I Have to Be Considered as a Staff Member at NEC?
-To work at NEC, teachers must have an attitude to relentlessly work to not only obliterate the opportunity and achievement gap, but to ensure that every child seated in a classroom achieves at high levels no matter what the narrative is that society places upon them. As a members of the Wolf Pack, we are working to redefine how we deliver a quality, public education and are only recruiting teachers to our campus who come with a record of success in serving students of color, who value diversity and are unafraid to have conversations about race and implicit bias in education, and who will commit to serving our students each and every day.
