  • Northdside is an excellent school. The PTA is awesome in assisting teachers, students and parents. It is the only school I know that has a cross guard in the front of the school daily greeting parents and assisting our children in crossing the streets.It is an Exemplary School!

  • Northside really use to be a nice school until Mrs. Brown left and it has definitely went down hill from there. It's structured like a boot-camp and yet they still have so many discipline problems that the kids that are there to learn really suffer. They take recess from the kids continually and wonder why they are bouncing off the walls.The upside is there are a few teachers there that really care about the kids but not enough to make a difference.
