Principal's Message

Welcome to Northside Intermediate School!

Nestled in the Historic District of downtown Opelika, Northside School is committed to providing a quality education that goes beyond teaching fundamental skills and focuses on the whole child. Northside is an accredited school and serves a diverse population of over 400 students in 3rd through 5th grades. Our faculty and staff strive to create an educational experience that enrich students' academic, social, creative, and physical capabilities.

We believe that all children are leaders and encourage them to develop their leadership skills through critical thinking, active participation in hands-on experiences, and interdisciplinary activities. Northside is a Leader in Me school that utilizes a formal scholastic leadership program focusing on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to enrich the achievement experience. These proactive and effective approaches introduce the children to attaining one's goals and dreams through the development of character and work-ethic.

Knowing that students excel when a caring team of parents, school personnel, and community fully support them, we hope that you will become involved with PTO and the many activities designed to promote stakeholder involvement. Our goal is for you to feel welcomed and at home as you actively participate in your child's education experience.

I personally look forward to meeting and working with you to help your child succeed. If I can ever be of any assistance, please feel free to contact me. It's going to be an incredible year -

Warmest regards,

Cindy A. Poteet, Principal
