From the Principal

It’s a Great Day to be an EAGLE! Our mission is excellence for all students through strong relationships and instructional strategies delivered by effective teachers.  Our students and staff have devoted themselves to excellence in all endeavors as recognized by the 2016 Platinum Award and 2015 Gold Award for Greatest Gains from the Governor's Office of Student Achievement. Contributing and continuing this legacy excellence and EAGLE PRIDE entails a daily investment of yourself towards positive growth to reach your fullest potential. There is no such thing as an unimportant person or an unimportant day at Eastside!

We are fully committed towards accomplishing the mission of the Newton County School System (NCSS) for providing educational excellence for all students. As such, our two non-negotiable goals are to increase student achievement and to provide more effective teaching. We will continue to build the capacity of personnel to deliver high quality instruction by utilizing research-based instructional strategies during lessons, building a foundation of background knowledge for our students throughout the school day, and by providing greater integration of technology in classrooms. The Eastside community (staff, students, and parents) works cooperatively to ensure a safe environment. We promote collaboration among faculty, parents, students and the community in order to enhance the educational goals and development of individuals.
