Northside Elementary School has been proudly "Changing the World, One Viking at a Time" since 1968. Located in the heart of Panama City, Northside serves students in Pre- Kindergarten through grade 5. The faculty and staff at Northside are a family of dedicated professionals that truly believe every student has the potential to change the world for the better. Within the walls of our school there is a positive energy, excitement for learning and an openness to individual differences.
Positive relationships that encourage courtesy and respect ensure a school culture that is pleasant, comfortable, and safe in every way for students and staff. A daily focus on three Core Essential Values (Making Smart Decisions, Treating Others Right and Maximizing Your Potential) helps foster an environment of a growth mindset. Vikings understand that: It’s cool to be challenged! It’s cool to learn from mistakes! It’s cool to be kind! Monthly pep rallies help reinforce our Core Essential Values, strengthen our sense of community and heighten school- wide enthusiasm, while celebrating individual, classroom and school level accomplishments. Northside provides students with opportunities to participate in a variety of interest-based activities that are designed to enhance the overall educational experience. Leadership activities include Television Crew, Safety Patrol and K-Kids. Activities such as Chorus, Golf Club, Jr. Olympics, and art shows provide students opportunities to explore physical and creative outlets.
