    Not really year to submit a school rating - just visiting Northside Elementary on Googlemaps... I attended this school in 1957/1958 as a first grader.... my teacher's name was Mrs Smith and I lived off Whispering Pines Road. Looks like the school has added on and changed the exterior facade to some degree and of course the surroundings have changed dramatically. Nice to take a trip back in time. Lots of memories.

    My daughter is in the 3rd grade and has attended since Kindergarten. I have loved the school from day one. The student to teacher ratio is small and the teachers try their best to send home information about the kids on a regular basis. I also love the principal. She really cares about the students. She welcomes parent involvement and have several progams for both parents and students to be involved in.

    Hello I am a parent of a Northside student. I must admit there are great teachers and all of them are very important in our kids lives. My daughter has attended that school since Kindergarden and now she's going to the second. Tyqiaunna went from very poor learning skills to an A/B honor roll student. She loves to read write and spell. Without the teachers there I would not be the parent I am today. so thanks to all of teachers.
