The mission of North Side Community School--a preschool-6th grade charter school serving urban neighborhoods--is to improve each student's opportunities in education and life by developing the skills, knowledge, and personal qualities necessary for success.

These skills, knowledge, and qualities will be acquired through individualized instruction, small class size, extended school day, extended school year, and the active involvement of parents and families.
