MY DAUGHTER HAS BEEN AT NORTHSIDE 3 YRS NOW, WE ARE VERY HAPPY WITH THE SCHOOL AND ALL HER TEACHERS AND THE WATCH DOG PROGRAM IS GREAT

Wonderful, caring staff. Great teachers. Kids get extra help when needed. Tries to keep parents involved in all levels of your children's education!

Very disappointed,we moved here July 2005 and so far my son had a 'student' teacher for 3 months, then the regular teacher who seems to be absent often. The school seems to have a discipline problem (kids swear and hit each other on a constant basis)and there are no consequences for them. I will be homeschooling next year.

As the parent of a child with special needs,I found Northside to be the best elementary school in the county. My son attended Northside for 8 years. The special ed teachers and the general ed teachers gave 100% to him and to the concept of inclusion. I could never say enough good things about them and their level of commitment. Keep up the excellent work!

This is the second school my daughter has been in since we came to the USA, and on the whole education wise, my daughter has improved grades as each days goes by she is doing very well. But unlike the previous school here and the ones in the Uk, the school does not seem to offer anything in the after school activities, not much on school trips or events. Nothing is sent home about parent involvement, and to my shock and horror , On sports days each year the parents are not only not invited , its not even thought of. Saying that the teachers that my daughter has had there which is 2 as she left and restarted there , well they are 100% and more on education and I and my family are very grateful to them, because of them I may have a budding Scientist on my hands in the future.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
