North Side Middle School

The caring staff at North Side Middle School is dedicated to providing the best for our students. Our educational philosophy is flexible enough to incorporate new learning techniques along with tried and true methods. We believe in providing opportunities for students to put their acquired knowledge to practice, which encourages self-confidence and self-esteem. North Side students move on to high school with a positive attitude toward life-long learning and achieving, and with the preparation to become responsible, knowledgeable people who can take charge of their lives.

At North Side Middle school, all adults, from the custodian to the volunteer to the superintendent to the parent, make up a team. We all work to create an enriching and stimulating environment in which our wonderful students can learn and grow.
