The NORTH SIDE SCHOOL is an independent, prestigious charter school, specializing in education and early childhood development. The school's success is credited to our staff's efforts which are motivated by the belief that "every child`S individuality must be respected and nourished".
We believe that from the moment the child enters the classroom, each step in his education is seen as a progressive building bloc; ultimately forming the whole person, in the emergence from childhood to adult.
All of our focus is on the needs of the child.
We take pride in seeing and meeting the student's personality and intellectual needs, rather than viewing them as part of the classroom process.
North Side School is a longstanding member of American Montessori Society

- The mission of North Side School is to provide a warm, caring, and stimulating early childhood environment that is safe and nurturing. It is a time of fun, warmth, security, exploration and discovering. The school fosters self-esteem and builds confidence based on self-respect and respect for all others. We follow the "Golden Rule." We have created a loving, trustful, and respectful environment which enables children to love, trust and respect their parents, teachers, each other, and especially themselves. We believe in the value of human diversity and the fair treatment of all people and the earth. Students and their families feel comfortable and welcomed at all times. We view the parents as partners in the education of their children and integrate them into our curriculum, as well as integrating into our community and becoming part of it. Our staff is professional and knowledgeable about childhood development and early childhood education. We work collaboratively with our staff, parents, and the entire community to guide our students in their learning process. We have high expectations that are guided by the developmental needs of each child, with an understanding that many of our children have needs beyond that of learning essential skills; their needs are personal, pervasive and affect them on every level of humanity. We follow standard pre-school curriculum guidelines and the New York State Common Core project. We focus on the whole child with developmentally appropriate quality education developed to meet the needs of each child. North Side School maintains a progressive curriculum promoting learning the tools necessary to succeed in school and in life. We encourage and develop them physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually while being part of a whole community. The goal is for students to enter Kindergarten with the necessary skills to succeed and promote lifelong learning.
