I was worried about sending my son to Northside, just because of the ratings of the other schools in the area. However, he has loved going to school there and the teachers are nice and work hard. The teachers are helpful and know their students. I have had NO concerns with bullying. The school strives to make sure that everyone is informed, we get notes home, as well as emails and phone calls - if anyone misses the information it is their own fault. They do have quite a few fundraisers; but with the community lacking support for schools to be built and fixed that is not very surprising.
