What Makes Northside School a Great Experience? Staff and Student Highlights- Chaves/McComb

This month we highlight the work of Suzanne Chaves and Amy McComb's classrooms. This dynamic team promotes emotional social development through team building and academic rigor with real world learning. On of the most effective ways of integrating knowledge is by providing real world experiences for our young learners in outdoor settings. We are most grateful that this team tackled the fundraising and grit necessary to launch our learners! WE are grateful and so our the students. Special shout out to parent chaperones and scholarship donations.

Northside School Calendar

Northside Enrichment Days

This year our school will have many opportunities for student enrichment including: Northside Enrichment Days. There are 10 Northside Enrichment Days scheduled for this year.  For example on a NED Day your student will attend two classes with a guest expert in the Arts and in the afternoon attend a STEM or VAPA assembly such as Phil Tulga or the Auburn Symphony.

That is not the only way our students can participate in enrichment. We will have sign ups for afterschool enrichment in the Winter and Spring through our GATE program, before school Music Club and during school students receive enrichment through Northside Garden classes. All this and so much more thanks to our Dream Team PTA and you! 


At Northside students have multiple choices to enrich their learning:

  • Differentiated curriculum in the classroom, focusing on rigor and relevance using  Highly Effective Teaching and Guided Language Acquisition
  • Northside Garden Learning Program with Ms. Burke
