We were at this school from pre-k to 2nd grade with one of my sons and pre-k to kindergarten with my other son and these teachers work so hard and care so much and this school is awesome! After we moved away we have missed it so much, my kids tested out of their current grades 1st and 3rd upon arrival to our new city! I don't care what that rating of 5 says that's factually just not true. This school building might be one of the older schools in Cabot but it has top notch teachers that prepare the kids for every grade and care deeply for their students and their well being!

Amazing teachers in all grades. This school looks run down because it's one of the oldest in Cabot but it is truly a great school. The teachers are kind and compassionate and go above and beyond to make sure your kids are well taken care of. I agree with comments in regards to the old playground equipment but that never seemed to interfere with the quality of the schooling and the kids didn't even notice!

My two youngest boys attends Northside Elementary, and they both love it. The teachers and staff there all display the fact that they love their jobs by their positive approach of making the kids feel comfortable and safe, and showing the kids how excited learning, and teaching, can be. I could literally go on and on about this school. I believe that my children are in the BEST SCHOOL around!

I am so happy to be able to be a part of this school. All of the teachers strive for excellence and we are surrounded by supportive parents who truly care about their child's education. We have some of the most cooperative children around. Our district is able to supply us with the latest technology and it only gets better every year. Our principal, Suzanne Proctor, is a wonderful person who motivates the students and the teachers to do their best and always do what is right. This school has a family feel and I am very happy here.

I am a parent of a 1st grade student at Northside. We were transferred from Magness Creek this year. I was not excited about being transferred to this school, and fought it tooth and nail. I must say, however, that I have been extremely pleased with the level of eduction and the sincere kindness that has been shown to my family and myself by the school staff. Northside has an excellent Principal and some of the best and sweetest teachers I have ever seen. They are all so down-to-earth and fun. It is a great learning environment for children. I am happy to now call this my son's school! They have definitely earned their stripes and my complete respect.

I have 2 girls at Northside. We are military and move all over, so I have seen good and bad things all over. I have to say Northside is and excellent school. The teaching staff is awesome. I have watched one of my children, who has ADD/ODD bloom since she has been there. The kids adore their teachers and the teachers truly care about every child and their success. Now with that said...... It may be a statewide thing, but I think there is entirely too much candy and junk given out to the kids. As rewards they are given various forms of junk food, and when it is a reward, as a parent, it makes it diffucult to say no my child can't have that. It also sends the wrong message of eating when you perform well.

I have one son that has attended Northside since kindergarten, (he will be in 4th grade), and I have been extremely pleased with the level of education and love my child has received. Each year my son has been blessed with an excellent teacher(s) that educate, encourage and nurture him. My son has struggled with reading and at Northside he has received unbelievable support from the teachers. They really worked non stop to get his level of reading up and in the process gave him renewed confidence in himself. As a parent I couldn't ask for more for my child. I look forward to my 5 y.o. starting kindergarten this year because I know first hand he will be attending the best elementary school. Ms. Finley is great! She encourages parent participation and her door is always open! The school's PTO is really involved and does a great job supporting Northside.

My daughter attended northside during her 2nd and 3rd grade year. (2003-2005) She really bloomed at this school. This school not only gave katelynn a great education but also encourage great character. The principal is so very encouraging and a real leader. The atmosphere is fun and caring. Katelynn always felt like she was 'cared about'. The school is also called the golden rule school........You can imagine why..........They encourage treating each other (faculty, teachers, students) with respect and care. This is a grade aaaaaaaaaaaaa school. If you have the option to choose a school in cabot ...his is the very best one!

This will be my sons second year at northside. I love it. I feel that he is getting a quality education from teachers who really care about him. I don't worry about my hyper active child being allowed to slip through a crack. I know that this years focus will be on the benchmark exams, but it is that way across the state in the fourth grade. I found this frustrating when my daughter was in the fourth grade, but over all she learned a great deal training for this exam.

Up until this school year,I would have given Northside Elementary 5 stars but 4th grade has changed my opinion. It seems like the only thing that is important is the Benchmark testing. The teachers,principal,etc seem to think this is the only important thing in the 4th grade. I realize that it is important to the school rating,school funds,etc. But it is by far not the only thing important to our children. Everyone seems to worry about how the children perform on the test but what about the teachers? Is there a breakdown of how the children performed,what teacher/teachers they had,and how maybe the teacher may need improvement in teaching the material? I am a parent that is very active in my childs education but if we,as parents question anything,we seem to get put on the proverbial 'one of those parents'.I know a lot more parents that feel this way.

We love Northside Elementary! I have one daughter that currently attends Northside and has had a really positive, encouraging, academic experience. We have been here two years and look forward to our third child starting Kindergarten at Northside Elementery. I think the real icing the cake is the principal...Ms. Finley! The children are allowed to be children, but the boundaries are very clear. School goals are achievable and are effectively acknowledged.
