Welcome Letter

Dear Families and Students:

Welcome to Northside Alternative High School (NAHS). I am Dr. Darrell Rice and it is my great honor to serve as principal of Northside Alternative High School. It is our mission at NAHS to provide a safe and structured environment where instruction is geared to produce successful students who are able to successfully compete in our modern society.

While students are placed at the NAHS for short periods of time, it is our campus goal for students to return to their home campus and still be academically on track. Our highly qualified teachers implement the NISD Curriculum Guide and follow the specific scope and sequence, which is consistent with all other NISD schools. Our goal for students is to achieve academic success while on our campus.

 As our students strive to achieve success and transition back to their home campus, we at NAHS expect the following from all students:

  1. Demonstrate academic and personal integrity in all of their course work and efforts.
  2. Be honest in all situations to promote self-learning, intellectual growth, and character development.
  3. Always show respect to fellow students, their family members, NAHS faculty and staff, other individuals or groups within and outside of the City of San Antonio.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about the Northside Alternative High School.


Dr. Darrell Rice, Principal
