While looking for a school for our 4 year old, we came across Southside. What a blessing this school has been. Our sweet little girl started at 4 in Kindergarten and has learned so much since August. We feel so so blessed to know the teachers and principal and our hearts just melt when she comes home reciting Bible verses and songs. The Christian atmosphere teaches our daughter about what's acceptable in the society we live in. The teachers take their time with each child and are not rushed since the ratio is so low. It's feels like homeschooling since the attention is focused on so few children. Southside has been the best thing to happen to our family!

We absolutely love the school. We have two children at Southside and they love it! The teachers have been wonderful! The other students are so kind. They really have a wonderful day of learning and other activities!! We are so very glad to be a part of these amazing loving people.

Southside is great! My three boys (7, 11, and 14) started at the school last year. At first, we were concern the school may be too small to provide a strong social and academic environment for the kids. The small size actually helps in allowing student to make strong friendships and get personal attention. Southside uses educational packets that insure the student learns requirements for the grade level. You can not jump to the next packet until you have tested out of the previous packet. Each student works at his/her own pace. No sliding by because the rest of the class must move on. Also, students can move quickly through subjects of their strengths (no holding back waiting for other students). I strongly recommend checking this school out. The small school does have a nice gym and a boy s basketball team and a girl s volleyball.

Independent learning is not for every child. The staff here have been a tremendous blessing to my daughter and i. We needed an independent learning environment and the support from the school to help with instilling godly principles. Outstanding!

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.
