Principal's Message

Mike Raters

At Southside, our motto is "Relentlessly pursuing excellence and continuous improvement." We preach this to our students every day.

We have an incredibly dedicated teaching staff that works hard to see that all our students reach their potential.  We also 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 and every student.

I couldn't be more excited about where we're headed. We have worked hard to develop learning-centered focus for students and we now see our entire student body benefitting in different ways. The school spirit on display daily is wonderful to see!

"Thank you" goes to our entire team as well as our parents, volunteers and community partners for all their incredible support. Through good collaboration and communication, we will continue to pursue new goals and provide all Southside students and families with a quality educational environment that develops the whole student so they are well prepared for high school and beyond. 

Go Panthers!
