Teaching and Learning

Aude Quaerere . Dare to Ask. Our curriculum is rooted in this philosophy. We are a STEAM focused and project-based learning school that specializes in differentiated instruction in small classes. We encourage our students to ask questions, collaborate, explore, and think critically through the creative process to solve real-world problems through authentic projects.

Middle School

We are a fluid, dynamic, collaborative, process-based, future-forward, independent school designed around STEAM education and project-based learning, which enables children to explore the synergy between art and science to come up with creative new ideas and solutions.

Preschool (2s, 3s, Pre-K)

Our Preschool program is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education and values each child’s individuality within the context of a community.

Lower School

Northside’s Lower School is founded on the belief and experience that engaging a child's powerful curiosity and passion for learning is critical to the development of higher order and critical thinking. In an ever-changing world, it's becoming increasingly important to teach students at a young age to start asking questions, inquire, investigate, and think critically to be prepared to solve the growing complexity of real-world problems.


In our School's STEAM program, the "A" is for Arts, and is arguably the most significant feature of the program. The importance of Arts can not be overstated, as it provides students a well-rounded education of creativity, innovation, communication, and contemplation, which is in high demand in the modern workforce.
