This school, like any other has its share of great teachers and not so great teachers. The one thing I can say for the district as a whole is that children are more than a number or a test score. Children are what drives this district. Personally, after removing my children from a Northside school because of bullying and lack of learning, one of my daughters went from failing in Northside to an honors student in one year because she had teachers who cared. My other went from a kinder reading level in second grade to a third grade level in one year, again because her teacher cared.
