With a diverse student population of 233 students, the school generally outperforms the state average in English Language Arts and Science, but has room for improvement in Math.

Southside Elementary stands out for its strong academic performance, particularly in English Language Arts and Science. Several grade levels score significantly above the state average on Smarter Balanced Assessments, and the school's science proficiency rates on the CAST exam are well above the state averages. However, the school's math proficiency rates are more mixed, with some grade levels scoring below the state average, suggesting an area for improvement.

Despite the school's academic strengths, its statewide ranking has declined in recent years, from 1383 out of 5,789 schools in 2018-2019 to 2115 out of 5,848 schools in 2022-2023. Additionally, the school's chronic absenteeism rate of 22.5% is quite high, which could be impacting academic performance. On a positive note, Southside Elementary has a diverse student population, with a majority Hispanic enrollment and significant representation from other racial and ethnic groups, which can be leveraged to provide a well-rounded educational experience.
