We love North Side! The teachers, staff, and Principal actually care about the students at North Side. It is a school that stresses the importance of community and family involvement. North Side is the only school that I know of in this area with a state of the art Outdoor Classroom to incorporate nature into learning. North Side is home to children of all economic levels and each one is treated equally. My kindergartner is even learning Chinese in school!! I am so happy that I listened to my husband (North Side alumni) and decided to give North Side a chance in PreK, we're still here in K and we couldn't be more pleased!!

This is a great place for a child to grow and learn. I have 4 children in northside and they love it as well. I have one child in 4th grade that is very advanced in all areas and the staff are so wonderful to help him to meet his goals and further advance in his studies. I also have a child there that is developmentally delayed in almost all areas and the school has helped him and our family learn how to cope and understand different ways to help with his education. With the help of mrs. Eva brumit(kindergarten teacher) my kindergartner is starting to advance in areas we never thought he would. So i am grateful to this school and there staff for the kind of care and concern they have not just for my children but for every child that walks through those doors every morning.

This school is wonderful. There are wonderful music and art teachers, and a plethura of afterschool programs. Afterschool programs target academic and self esteem growth, from 'young authors' to 'wee act'. There are many opportunities for parents to support and help out when needed. Thank goodness so many parents are partners with the teachers for the children.
