Principal's Message

Mike Raters

This is my second year at Southside and I'm excited about where we're headed. We have worked hard to develop learning-centered focus; improve student behaviors; and enhance school spirit; and I appreciate all the support we have received. Through good collaboration and communication, we are establishing a student-centered, ever-improving culture, and I thank you for sharing in that effort!

Our motto is "Relentlessly pursuing excellence and continuous improvement" and we preach it to our students every day. We have an incredibly dedicated teaching staff who work hard to see that all our students reach their potential.  We offer a wide variety of clubs and activities to develop our students beyond the classroom. From our highly regarded Music Arts program to our nationally recognized Robotics team, there is something available to meet the interests of each student. We strongly encourage them to take advantage.

Go Panthers!
