Countdown to First Day of School!
Ombudsman Northeast High School is a fully accredited charter school located in north Tempe, on the southwest corner of Scottsdale Road and Weber Drive. Northeast students come to us from east valley locations such as Tempe, Scottsdale, Mesa, and Chandler. We emphasize safety and student social and emotional wellness in a small school environment as key components of students’ academic success. Academic counseling and individualized graduation plans empower students to determine their own graduation dates. Students practice collaboration, communication, and technological skills utilizing Microsoft tools in a combination of teacher led and independent study courses. Families can choose either a morning session from 7:30-11:30 AM or an afternoon session from 12:00-4:00 PM, with some flexibility.

Click on “Get Started” in the menu to fill out the form. A staff member will contact you soon to guide you on the next steps.
Our classrooms tend to be smaller than a traditional high school and while in school, students are immersed in a blended learning environment. What this means is that for their English and Math classes students will be in a traditional teacher-led classroom, similar to what you see in a traditional high school. For the rest of the time, students are in a lab environment working at their own pace through the rest of the classes. In the labs, there is a teacher to provide one-on-one support.
Students attend school for four hours a day Monday-Friday. You’ll have the option to attend our morning or afternoon session.
For those students who cannot attend regularly, we have the OMB Online Academy which provides greater schedule flexibility.

Greetings Students and Parents,
On behalf of the Ombudsman Northeast faculty and staff, welcome to the 23-24 school year! We’ve missed our students and look forward to seeing everyone when we return to school on Tuesday, August 8th. We are excited this year to implement some new tools, expand programs, and welcome a new staff member.
We bid a fond farewell to Odysseyware, a platform we have used for many years, and will begin working in Edmentum, a curriculum platform that we believe will better meet the needs of students and teachers. Once students complete orientation, they will be able to do additional work from home as they have in the past. Parent information on how to view student progress will be emailed once we complete orientation
We’re also excited to start our first full year of Dr. Doris Klein’s medical programs. Ombudsman students have the opportunity to earn high school credit and NHA accredited certifications in career fields such as medical assistant, pharmacy technician, and medical billing and coding here at the OMB Northeast campus. We are in the process of scheduling C-Tech training with Mr. Jonathan Lindsay whose workshops lead to industry credentials in copper and fiber optic network cabling in addition to earning high school credit. We also welcome Mr. Mitchell Roush and Metamorphosis Studios for a music and writing program previously available only at our OMB East campus. We’ll have more detailed information during orientation and will be encouraging students to sign up for these free opportunities as soon as possible.
Last, but certainly not least, we will be welcoming Mr. Kyle Rogers as our newest team member and lab teacher. Mr. Rogers has a background in social work and will work in the classroom with students on independent study courses and outside the classroom providing student and family services and resources. He will be working alongside our returning lab teacher and social worker Ms. Janea Fredia and our team of ASU social work interns. Also returning this year are Ms. Jaime Estrada (English), Ms. Daniella Trujillo (Math), and everyone’s favorite Ombudsman grad, our Administrative Assistant and attendance guru, Mr. Jordan Favela.
We will be holding an open house on August 7th from 3:00-6:00 PM and would love to see you there to meet staff, ask questions, take a peek at Edmentum, and check out the medical classroom. If you have family or friends who would like to know more about Ombudsman, this is a great opportunity for them to come on in and learn about OMB Northeast. Our new neighbors, Eternal Dance Company will also be hosting an open house the same night so you can get a peek at their beautiful new space and see what they do too.
We look forward to seeing you all on August 7th and our first day of school on August 8th,
Principal, Ombudsman Northeast High School
