Mission Statement

Our Mission is to enable all students to achieve adequate yearly progress in core academic subjects, as measured by TCAP/TNReady, as well as develop social responsibility and self-worth.

Recent Announcements

Beginning August 31st, recognizing that face-to-face instruction is the most effective method for the majority of our students, we are committed to bringing students in grades PreK through six back for in-person learning five days per week while adhering to all health and safety guidelines. This will require full compliance with the district’s in-person safety protocols, but will resemble the more traditional and familiar pre-COVID educational model.

We welcome you to South Side School!

We invite you to be a partner in creating and maintaining the best educational environment possible.
