Northside is a school that has improved alot. Current administration is caring and makes an effort to get to know students on a personal level. There are incentives in place and opportunities for all.

Northside is one of the best schools in Jackson. It has much diversity. Educators and staff members consistently collaborate to meet the needs of students. Administration is caring and supportive of students, faculty, and staff.

Child centered school with caring educators and administrators. There are a few rowdy kids but, overall, students are great.

I feel that the teacher are great but the students are aggressive racist and when they don't like something they throw stuff we had a great foren substitute and he told them not to eat in class so they threw. The food, suckers, and other things at him and called him racist for not letting them brake school rules. Other then the students I think the school is great but the students their ruin the school.

While I attended NSHS, I thought it was a good school. We had AP classes, and I was in all honors courses. However, it was not until college that I realized how little I had actually learned in high school. With the exception of math/calculus, I felt behind in my college courses. I do not believe this school adequately prepared me for the research and writing levels required in college. I struggled with papers in college because I was not taught in HS. Individual teachers were not a problem. In fact, many were wonderful, but there were definitely problems. Again, the math and possibly science department were fine. One calculus teacher in particular was fantastic, but I do believe she has since retired. Hopefully, North Side has changed since I graduated.

My name is Allyson and I attend North Side High. I just finished up my spphomore year, and I'm really looking forward to my junior year. North Side has definitely changed from how it used to be. (I know because both of my older brothers and many other people I know attended NSHS.) But it is not as bad as everyone tries to make it out to be. Many people try to say that it's nothing but a war zone. On some days, that can be true; but not overall. There are great people at NSHS, as well as some not to great. You just have to go into it having a level head. So far, I've loved North Side. I've met some great people and had some great memories. I've definitely gained some lifelong friendships. And I've learned a thing here and there along the way. :]

My impression overall (as I have transferred here from one of the top ten high schools in the country) is that Northside High School, is a poor excuse for a school in general. Northside lacks decent teachers, or stimulating academics. From the school district I transferred from a 6th grader, could do the work I'm doing as senior. I never have homework, and I spend most of my class time reading books I buy for pleasure, because the school work is anything but challenging. My sister who is now a law student at Vanderbilt, had homework constantly in high school, and so did her fellow classmates, of which nearly half went onto Ivy League Schools. I can not wait to graduate and join my sister at Vanderbilt. And in case you were wondering I'm a straight A student!

I graduated from North Side, and really enjoyed my years there. I now am attending one of the top colleges in the South, and I feel that North Side prepared me for the challenges of college. I loved high school, and I am still friends with many of the people I met there.

I am an alumus of North Side and I would recommend anyone go there. My brother and cousin now both attend and they would agree that it is a great school to spend four years of your life.

I didn't seem to care about how my child was failing. Yes, they sent notes home but after it was too late. I am a single mother(parent) needing help but there was none offered!

I am a freshman at North Side High School in Jackson, Tennessee, and it is one of the best, if not the best, school in the area. I would encourage anyone looking for a home in Jackson or Madison County to look in the North Side school zone. It is a great school, and myself and most other students would love to have new students at our school. The school is very diverse, so everyone can fit in. So come by and visit. It is an amazing school and any high school student would be lucky to attend.
