Mission Statement:
The mission of the Northside Alternative High School is to provide a safe, structured learning environment where academic instruction is an integral component in developing skilled students who are able to successfully compete in our modern society.

Why We're Here:
The purpose of Northside Alternative High School (a Disciplinary Alternative Education Program) is to provide a positive and disciplined educational setting for Northside high school students whose unacceptable behavior or involvement with alcohol, drugs or other substances at their regular school may not warrant expulsion, but whose behavior warrants removal from their home campus. Northside Alternative High School offers a supervised, structured educational alternative coupled with a supportive counseling program.
