Old Northeast High School



The story of Philadelphia’s original Northeast High School, 8th St. and Lehigh Avenue in Philadelphia. Northeast High moved to a new building at Cottman St. and Algon Avenue in 1957. Before the Lehigh Avenue property was razed it was occupied by Thomas Edison High School and the Julia De Burgos Middle School.

  1. Thanks for creating this story–it’s fascinating! I haven’t watched Frederick Wiseman’s documentary about Northeast High in years. I wonder how well it holds up?
