  • I think that Northside is a great school with great teachers.However,sometimes,there can be alot of homework.But,you actually learn alot,too.The only really bad thing is that at lunch they somtimes wouldn't let you talk at all.But overall it is a good school.

  • My children have been going to this school for 5 years this next school year. The staff are wonderful and the teachers are caring and love parent involvement. I wouldn't send them anywhere else. My son made double 5's on FCAT for 3rd grade. He's ADHD and that says something about how well his teacher worked with him.

  • This school is okay I guess.I would never send my child there though.At lunch you can't talk and you only get 15 minutes.PE is good but,I remeber when one of my friends fell off the swing and broke his arm and they didn't even walk over to make sure he was okay.I'm now in 5th grade at Holy Nativity Epicopal school.It's a great school , in the cove.I got a bad teacher at Northside so I switched over.Another thing that there are only a few good teachers.If you want your kid to come home and cry everyday from how much homework they have or how mean their teacer is , you can send them their.
