I have two sons who have attended Northside since kindergarten. One is in middle school now and the other is currently in 5th grade. Don't let the outside of the building fool you about the inside of the school. It is one of the older schools in the district, but it's what's inside that counts. The staff is wonderful and is truly striving to providing our student's with the best education possible. I am proud we are a part of the Northside family!
Seeing a school with an 8 we were excited that our son would be getting a great education. The excitement soon faded with every interaction with the administration in the school. I honestly believe my child was being picked on by some of the staff. My child will not attend another year at Northside Elementary.
I disagree on the most recent reviews! This is our 3rd year here and I've had the opportunity to be my child's homeroom parent as well as volunteering. I have had the pleasure of spending a great deal of time at the school. The office staff is always nice and helpful. If you spend any time at the school functions you also see that the principal really truly cares for the school and students. Very happy here and looking forward to having my youngest child start next year!
Office staff is rude, condescending. They talk down to you and make you feel about 2 inches tall. Principal doesn't really seem to care, the Vice principal doesn't either. I used to enioy this school. Glad we're switching this year.
Northside Elementary has had a change of leadership. The long time principal retired a couple of years ago, and her replacement has so far been unable to maintain the good feeling that used to be part of our school.
