Welcome to Southside High School, Home of the Sharks!

Please check back often for important news and updates. 

Parent Teacher Conferences - Thursday, Oct 19th.  11:00am - 7:00pm
(Lunch  Break will be from 3:00 - 3:30)

Congratulations to Billy Hochkeppel who was named Southside's first-ever Teacher of the Year!

Comments from Faculty & Students:

  • "He’s currently running three programs on top of his every day instruction. I’ve also seen his involvement and dedication to this school since its very beginning. In many schools, band directors get overlooked for this type of recognition because many do not understand just how much work and talent goes into running this type of program. While I’m sure there are many teachers who are extremely deserving of this title, there was no doubt in my mind as to who would be my first choice."

  • "Mr. H is something. I love him and what he does for us is amazing and changing my everyday life. He sets goals, shows leadership, and compassion."
