Our Mission Statement

INTRODUCTION

Northside Baptist School was established in September 1955, as a wholly owned ministry of Northside Baptist Church, to meet the needs of young children by providing an environment where they can grow spiritually, mentally, socially, physically and emotionally. We are concerned with the development of Christian leadership for the future; therefore, we place emphasis upon the spiritual as well as the educational growth of the child. It is to this end that our teaching efforts shall be directed throughout the school year.

 

                                                                                        

The Vision of Northside Baptist School
