Rude teachers, rude administrators, etc. They spend the lunch hour bashing students. All they care about is their A grade so that they can get more money in their pocket. Besides that, their focus is just passing them off. These kids are just a means to their selfish ends. Go to Concord...you won't regret it.

I posted a not so great review on this site 2 days ago. It has been deleted! I wonder how many other bad reviews have been deleted.

My son has an emotional disability and requires an IEP. The principal, teachers, and the special education teacher have been wonderful in working with us and the doctor. They also do their best if your child is not doing well to follow up and try to find ways to bring their grades up (tutoring, etc).

One of the best schools around. The majority of kids follow the rules and the teachers are fantastic. One science teacher gives up his lunch, everyday, to help kids. He has also helped many students in need by purchasing items they can't afford. I've had the best time there and learned a lot.

The office staff isn't the greatest. The rude behavior was uncalled for and very unprofessional. Some teachers are decent and give you child the education they need. Others go above and beyond what is required of them. There is a 7th grade math teacher that gives up her lunch hour, stays after school, and even helps you before school starts. In all, NS is okay. There are good and bad parts...but most of the time the bad is too heavy to overlook...sorry NS=(

The school is very organized and has some very good teachers and coaches. The school's office staff I was not impressed with, the rude behavior i got from the secretary wasn't very profesional. I recomend getting your chid into honors courses though because of the teachers though the students aren't those of the nicest. Over all this school has is good and its bad but i would recomend to send your child to another local school.

North Side is an awesome school for kids to be! The two principals are involved and they know what is going on in their school! You walk around the school and see how much is going on and how the kids are busy and involved with eachother.The teachers really care about the students and their education they push the students to their limits, and the kids excede well.The kids are involved with so much clubs and extra curriculum activities they stay out of trouble. North Side is a great school for the kids to go to school and they know that they are very safe in that school,and if they are put in danger, Mr. Cripliver and Mrs. Jackowiak wont stand for it,and they will make sure that our kids are safe,and not in danger. We at North Side know that the schools a safe place,and the teachers/counclers/and principals care!Good job NorthSide!!
