    Northside Elementary is an incredible school. The staff creates an enthusiastic environment that encourages the children to grow through education and citizenship.

    This is a one of a kind school..it is like one large family. We adopted our 4th grader from Kazakhstan 3 years ago and she didn't speak any English. The whole school embraced her and she was speaking clear English within 3 months and is now thriving at the school. My other kids love the school and are thriving there too. We are so lucky to have this magical school in our community.

    We love the nuturing learning experience my child gets at this school. Every person in this school cares about how my child will affect the world when he leaves their school. They want him to make good decisions think before he acts and be kind to his fellow classmates and teachers. You couldn't ask for more from a school.

    Northside Elementary is made up of the kindest most dedicated staff volunteers supporters and students. It is a close-knit body of students who are respectful and caring toward one another; where the teachers/staff truly care about each and every child that walks through those doors. There's no place else I'd rather my children obtain their primary education. I am also proud to say that my children are the 4th generation in our family to be attending Northside!

    Northside is such a gift to our community. The school goes beyond the call to teach our children; it's a support sytem for our whole community. It brings everyone together in so many ways. This school provides basic amenities to children whose families are doing all they can to just survive. The staff is wonderful and so personable. This school is really the heart of our community in so many ways.

    Northside is a wonderful school--everyone knows everyone. If there is a family child or individual in need are small community reaches out to help. My son has been going to Northside since 1st grade and we will be purchasing a home to stay in the community for my youngest child's elementary years as well.

    Northside School is the hub of our rural neighborhood. It is a home away from home for the kids. I am privileged to send my kids to a school where I know the staff cares for them as valued members of the community. Northside school shines a light on how education of the future should be because it has never let go of it's community roots!

    Northside is not just a school it is a family. Students are treated with respect and the teachers and peers command that same respect in return. Students are held accountable for their actions (good and bad) Reflection (how should I have done X differently?) is an important learning tool that is taught right at the beginning in Kindergarten. Northside is an incredible place for learning. We are proud to be a Northside family.

    Why do you love Northside Elementary School? Committed teachers and staff that rise above 'no child left behind!'

  • (4 years ago)

    This is a wonderful school. I have had children in this school for a total 8 years. One of my daughters was diagnosed with a learning disability because of Mrs. Clarks dedication to her kindergartners. I have another daughter who attended Northside that is graduating this year with just under a 4.0 gpa. I love the staff and families of Northside. Northside is a great school and I am privileged to be a part of it.

    The staff treat every student as if they were their own!

    The reason these children in this rural school consistently score in the top in Idaho is easy to see committed staff aids parents and community. It is amazing what can happen when children are paired with such caring environment. And my three year old just can't wait to start school that says a lot in itself!

    We went from homeschooling to our first year in public school at Northside Elementary. The children have made the transition beautifully due to the caring environment and excellent staff. The school is truly an extension of the values we uphold in our own home.

The Northside staff becomes an extension of your family.

    I love Northside because it is a small school. All of the kids have grown up together because there is only one classroom per grade. They have a wonderful friendly and caring staff. They really work hard to make sure the children learn in a comfortable familiar and calm environment.

    My children love Northside as did I when I was a student. The principle is very caring and involved and the teachers make learning fun!
