Northside Elementary has such and amazing group of teachers and staff that truly cares about each and every child--as an individual, not just a student. The students are challenged to excel academically, and the teachers go above and beyond to help them reach those goals. Each person that works or volunteers at Northside is dedicated to helping these kids become outstanding citizens. We are blessed to have Northside Elementary in our community!

The staff a Northside is exceptional. They go above and beyond in many ways. As a result of their efforts, the school has been the recipient of many accolades for student academic performance. In addition, due to staff efforts the students have benefited from grants for technology and other funding that has been of significant benefit to the students. The environment at the school is nurturing, as well as academically challenging. There are numerous opportunities for extracurricular activities and parents are highly encouraged to be active participants within the school and their child's education. The staff cares a great deal about the work that they do and they show individualized attention to each student. I couldn't really ask for more from an elementary school!

Northside Elementary is a small country school, with a big heart! Our community is very involved in helping make Northside a special place to learn. The teachers truly care about their students, and want to make sure they receive the best education possible. We also have very involved parents and PTO members, who help make Northside the special place it is. Our school is one of the top elementary schools in Idaho for its test scores. This does not happen by accident. It takes hard work to make sure every student is given the opportunity to learn and understand how important a great education is. Please consider our school as one of your winners! Thank you.

This is a one of a kind school..it is like one large family. We adopted our 4th grader from Kazakhstan 3 years ago and she didn't speak any English. The whole school embraced her and she was speaking clear English within 3 months and is now thriving at the school. My other kids love the school and are thriving there too. We are so lucky to have this magical school in our community.

We love the nuturing learning experience my child gets at this school. Every person in this school cares about how my child will affect the world when he leaves their school. They want him to make good decisions, think before he acts and be kind to his fellow classmates and teachers. You couldn't ask for more from a school.

Northside is a wonderful school--everyone knows everyone. If there is a family, child, or individual in need are small community reaches out to help. My son has been going to Northside since 1st grade and we will be purchasing a home to stay in the community for my youngest child's elementary years as well.

Northside is such a gift to our community. The school goes beyond the call to teach our children; it's a support sytem for our whole community. It brings everyone together in so many ways. This school provides basic amenities to children whose families are doing all they can to just survive. The staff is wonderful and so personable. This school is really the heart of our community in so many ways.

Northside Elementary is made up of the kindest, most dedicated staff, volunteers, supporters, and students. It is a close-knit body of students who are respectful and caring toward one another; where the teachers/staff truly care about each and every child that walks through those doors. There's no place else I'd rather my children obtain their primary education. I am also proud to say that my children are the 4th generation in our family to be attending Northside!

Northside is not just a school, it is a family. Students are treated with respect, and the teachers and peers command that same respect in return. Students are held accountable for their actions (good and bad) Reflection (how should I have done X differently?) is an important learning tool that is taught right at the beginning in Kindergarten. Northside is an incredible place for learning. We are proud to be a Northside family.

We went from homeschooling to our first year in public school at Northside Elementary. The children have made the transition beautifully due to the caring environment and excellent staff. The school is truly an extension of the values we uphold in our own home.

I love Northside because it is a small school. All of the kids have grown up together because there is only one classroom per grade. They have a wonderful, friendly, and caring staff. They really work hard to make sure the children learn in a comfortable, familiar, and calm environment.

This is a wonderful school. I have had children in this school for a total 8 years. One of my daughters was diagnosed with a learning disability because of Mrs. Clarks dedication to her kindergartners. I have another daughter who attended Northside that is graduating this year with just under a 4.0 gpa. I love the staff and families of Northside. Northside is a great school and I am privileged to be a part of it.

The reason these children, in this rural school, consistently score in the top in Idaho is easy to see: committed staff, aids, parents and community. It is amazing what can happen when children are paired with such caring environment. And my three year old just can't wait to start school, that says a lot in itself!

Northside School is the hub of our rural neighborhood. It is a home away from home for the kids. I am privileged to send my kids to a school where I know the staff cares for them as valued members of the community. Northside school shines a light on how education of the future should be, because it has never let go of it's community roots!

Northside is an amazing school with personal attention to every student. At the middle school they say you can tell a Northside student the minute they walk through the doors. They are polite and respectful to teachers and other students. This is a result of the strong parent and teacher involvement in this school. This is my choice over a private school for my 2 sons who have been lucky enough to attend for the last 4 and 5 years. Northside turns out a number of outstanding students in the district every year.

My children have attended Northside Elementary for the past two academic years. I have been disappointed by the curriculum as well as by the seeming lack of motivation of the staff. There are huge communication defecits between the teachers and the parents which places a burden on the part of the parents for overseeing their child's academic performance. I am disappointed to the point that I feel I must move my children to a private school in order to make certain that they receive the education necessary for future success.
