Open Quote While I think that the teachers are trying to do the best that they can at Northside, this is a terrible school. We moved in the middle of the school year and my son was in 4th grade and was constantly teased, made fun of and bullied all through his time there. I was very disappointed with the lack of communication from the teachers with the parents. If I had to do it all over again, I'd take my son somewhere else. Even homeschooling would have been better than Northside. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
