I moved to south side my Sophomore year, scared as I was I went in and the staff was so helpful! They were nice and on the first day I was already thinking about my future and being asked questions no one asked me before. From that point on people were helping me towards my college goals. Allowing me to take college courses listening to me cry, helping me whenever needed however they could. They worked with me around what I thought I wanted and what I needed they were always friendly and open to hear my ideas.

The school is great! I wouldn’t change anything about the education. There are tons of extracurricular activities for kids. If you are interested in singing, the choir program is one of the best in the state!
Southside School District goes above and beyond to meet the needs of their students. From offering AP and college classes to the availability of achieving a technical certificate, Southside offers their students the ability to reach their post-high school plans. They not only allow students to plan and attain their "future story", but they also meet the basic needs of their students by providing school supplies for all students in the district and feeding them a second breakfast to make sure that teenagers who often won't eat breakfast have a chance to eat. Southside is one of the most caring districts.
