Northside Elementary has been more than a blessing for my son. While attending Northside in 2nd grade, my son was diagnosed with severe dyslexia. He struggled daily with tasks at hand. Although he is incredibly smart, he was consistantly falling behind and was suffering with self esteem issues as well as academic. Thanks to the incredible staff, he was paired up with the Dyslexia Center at MississippiCollege, and attended therapy classes throughout the summer. He was tested, diagnosed, and treated there. At the beginning of 3rd grade, I was able to set up a meeting with an entire staff of educators, to discuss my son's specific needs. Every single need was met and because of the incredible teamwork, my son is now flourishing. He has completed another summer at the MC program and is looking forward to another awesome school year in Clinton. Thank you Northside!!! You are making a HUGE difference in the lives of the next generation!!

Both of my 3rd graders go to Northside. I will say the staff is great, and the teachers are helpful and accomodating for the parents, as well as the students.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Mississippi used the Mississippi Curriculum Test, 2nd Edition (MCT2) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts and math. The MCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Mississippi. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
