Why We're Here
The purpose of Northside Alternative Middle School (a Disciplinary Alternative Education Program) is to provide a positive and disciplined educational setting for Northside middle 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 Middle School offers a supervised, structured educational alternative coupled with a supportive counseling program.
