North Side is so much more than a #1 charter school. 

We are proof that children with disadvantages can succeed academically far beyond expectations. Our students come from St. Louis City’s toughest neighborhoods. Again and again, North Side scholars prove that with the right tools, support and expectations, they can rise above and make the grade. 

North Side Community School is a top-performing, free public school with open enrollment children in pre-kindergarten through seventh grade. We focus on the whole child offering an exceptional academic experience through our Six School Pillars that make up the North Side student experience. 

  • High Expectations 
  • Small Classes
  • Basic Skills Mastery
  • More Time Learning
  • Family Involvement
  • Basic Needs First

North Side scholars are instilled with an appreciation of JUSTICE and a growth mindset that nurtures intellectual curiosity and resilience in the face of adversity and struggle. We are the North Side Knights, where knowledge is power and respect is key. Come visit us and learn more.
