Founded in 1917, South Side School has a rich heritage of serving the children of Johnson City. Since the days of trolley cars rolling up Southwest Avenue, the school has been located in the quaint "tree streets" neighborhood. However, as of August, 1996, the school enjoys a new 83,000 square-foot facility that is "state of the art." With an enrollment of approximately 450 students, the school offers classes for pre-kindergarten through fourth grade. To improve reading and math skills, the school also offers a school-wide Title I project.Old South Side
