My daughter has been at Northside since TK and is currently finishing 5th grade! We`ve had amazing teachers all the way through. She`s a high learner (testing on 8th grade levels), has always been challenged and given the opportunity to grow. This small school is an amazing alternative to a huge school. We know all the teachers, everyone is always available and are looking forward to our final year, 6th grade next year. So many wonderful memories, I can`t believe it`s almost over.

Northside school harbors teachers who are beyond their usefulness to teach children effectively & appropriately. Specifically, parents pull kids out of NS to avoid a 4th grade teacher & hope they don't get one Kindergarten teacher in particular. It's sad to see parents jockeying around the district to fulfill educational needs to avoid unwanted teachers.
