About Us

SOUTHSIDE SCHOOL is a small public school serving children in Hollister, California, in grades kindergarten through eighth. We are dedicated to high academic achievement. A high-quality education is one of the most important things that we can provide a child. Exposure to a variety of topics, people, and adventures all contribute to a fulfilling school experience.

Originally opened in 1870, we were initially a small farm school that taught farming skills. Although we are still a small school in a rural community, we are family-oriented and focus on providing our students with a well-rounded education. For more than 15 years, our school has been rated highly in the academic field.

Our students are graded on their knowledge and understanding of the core curriculum, which includes math, social studies, science, language arts, and reading. Administrative decisions are made by members of the school board, and we have a parents' club that supports our students and various activities.


Thank you for your interest. For questions or comments, please use the information listed here. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
