I love Southside - it is the best place to go to get both academics and extra curricular educations. The teachers really care and the students are focused. It is a hgih school so the same issues apply as to any - but overall great!

I Think Southside High School is great! We live in the Elmira Free Academy district. I have a 16 yr old son. SHS has the block classes, and it is so much easier for the students.

The results for English language arts, math, living environment, chemistry, earth science, physics, global history and geography, and US history and government are displayed in GreatSchools profiles.

Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
