Northside students are exposed to a variety of different learning styles and experiences in a safe, loving, family environment that fosters the growth of respectful, intelligent future leaders. Everyone, including administrators, teachers, parents, and custodians, is fully invested in the success of our students. On Fridays students are able to participate in clubs during the school day based upon their interests. The clubs may be crafts, sports, or academic in nature, but everyone is smiling as they are engaged in an activity that they enjoy!

My daughter has had an incredible experience at Northside - from 1st through 5th grade. The teachers and staff make all the difference at the school - they truly care about the students and take the time to develop quality relationships with them. There are high expectations for academics, with an emphasis on character development. The extra experiences, like Northside University, have provided opportunities for my daughter to discover her gifts and talents. We love everything about Northside - wouldn't change a thing!
I still consider myself new to this school, but I completed my student teaching internship here also and absolutely love it! I have been really impressed by the sense of community and love how the staff are so welcoming. The kids are genuinely proud to be students here and are constantly showing how "gritty" they are. There are so many different programs, activities, and learning modules that the teachers and staff create to always ensure the best learning opportunities for the students. The school really does have a homey feel!
