Children come first at Northside Independent School District. Nowhere is this more true than in Northside's pre-kindergarten and kindergarten programs. Our programs are tailored to the needs of four- and five-year-old children. A good start is the foundation of a good education, and we look forward to partnering with you to see your child through his or her education at Northside. Look here for answers to the following questions, and more:
- What school will my child attend?
- Where do I sign my child up for kindergarten or pre-kindergarten?
- What paperwork do I need to bring for registration?
- Is my child eligible for pre-kindergarten?
- What curriculum does Northside use in its pre-kindergarten and kindergarten programs?
