Northside is a place with endless opportunities for students. I highly encourage this for students to attend this school because the environment is amazing. The school spirit is all around, the teachers are passionate about teaching, the staff is kind, and the classes are insightful and engaging in the most helpful way.

Going to Northside High School is an amazing opportunity. The way I am allowed to attend is through a magnet program since I am not zoned for the school. At Northside, everyone has a fair chance of equal education. The teachers are helpful and although they challenge us, they want to see the best in us. I would rate my overall experience at Northside an excellent!
Northside High School is not the best school. There is a lot of drama with students, drama with teachers, and the people at Northside are just cruel. I do not like it here because I enjoy being around happy and nice people. Everyone at Northside has a negative attitude and is always in a bad mood. Although, there are good teachers. These teacher know how to teach and there is a great disciplinarian in our school.
