This school is so wonderful! The teachers are great and the principal is very available and helpful. Tuition is extremely affordable (we did preschool and we've now stayed on for Kindergarten - both were cheaper than anything else I've come across). The curriculum is great and the class sizes are very small (think between 6-11 per class) it's almost like home-schooling away from home. It is a Christian school and I appreciate that my sons are in a wholesome atmosphere that can foster their faith as well.

My child has been enrolled with Northside since Kindergarten. No other school compares with their foundation for teaching not only academics, but also love, respect and compassion. My son's spiritual, academic and self-growth has been amazing. The teachers are fantastic and deeply care for each of their students and are always available to parents. Northside is family! Also, I cannot say enough about the curriculum and the books used in the classsroom. The books are simply superb! My child looks forward to attending school every day! I strongly urge parents to visit Northside - I only wish the school continued through 12th grade! Mary Thorsten

We appreciate & love Northside Christian School. What an outstanding staff of teachers & administration. My children are challenged academically & are growing so much in their spiritual lives as well. My two children love & appreciate their school & teachers. Please don't hesitate to experience & find what we have found for our children in this school. Nothing is more important than your children, their education & spiritual growth. Blessings, Tamra Gillen

I have had 4 children enrolled at Northside Christian School. There is no other school that I would send my children to. The teacher's not only give them a great education but they love and care and pray and nurture each and every child. They care about them as individuals and while they stess academics they stress God's love to each child. The kids grow academically and more important spiritually. They have opportunities to go on outreaches in the older grades, not one comes back the same. I highly recommend this school to anyone in K-8th grade.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
