Creating a joy of learning through experiences, opportunities, and relationships.
The Northside learning environment offers so much more than just standing in lines and rote memorization. While reading, writing and critical thinking are important and anchor our rigorous and challenging curriculum, exceptional teachers go far beyond what is required of them. Our teachers develop each students’ love of learning by putting real-world problems and collaborative projects in front of them. Students are encouraged to create, design, and dream. All the while, we make certain everything is anchored in Christian morals and values.
Northside offers a five-day, full-day kindergarten which focuses on learning academic foundations in phonics, reading and mathematics in a fun and nurturing environment. We want your child to love school! Along with academics, we encourage exploration, free play and time to wiggle. Students must be 5 years old by September 1st.
Elementary: Grades 1-4
Our elementary school allows learning to be an enjoyable experience and provides opportunities for academic excellence and exploration. The elementary program has a full development in all the areas of phonics, reading and language arts, history, geography, arithmetic, science, physical education, health, art and Bible. There are also student competitions and events such as: Spelling Bees, Speech Meets, Math Olympics, History Fairs, Science Fairs, a Serv-a-Thon, Marathon, Christmas Program, and School Spirit Week.
Middle school and high school are formative times in a student’s life.
Students are given the opportunity to accept increasing amounts of responsibility and independence in an academically challenging environment. Students and teachers work together in a climate of respect and collaborative learning. It is a learning community where creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration are emphasized. We understand that learning styles are different for each student. A Northside education provides numerous opportunities for students in missions and service. The teachers in the middle and high schools value each individual and encourage students to take risks and become an active participant in their own education. There are also student competitions and events such as: Spelling Bees, Speech Meets, Math Olympics, History Fairs, Science Fairs, a Serv-a-Thon, Marathon, School Spirit Week, Student Council, Writing Competitions, Drama, Worship Team, Missions Trips, See You at the Pole, Weekly Chapel, Career-based Field Trips and Camp Forest Springs (a Bible-based science camp).
In our Middle and High School programs, students rotate classrooms with teaching specialists in math, language arts, science, history, Bible, physical education, health and other components such as: keyboarding, Spanish, music and drama. Our Middle and High Schools offer small-school atmosphere that combines Bible, academics, student leadership, Kingdom service and specialty classes with personal attention. The weekly chapels, Bible classes, service opportunities, and missions/history trips encourage our students to build a personal relationship with Christ and to serve Him with their whole heart and mind. Our goal is to prepare students for college through a Christ-centered worldview.
