*Advocate for families
*Engage children in issues of social justice, decision-making and problem solving
The goals of Southside Family school are to provide Active, "hands-on" learning activities:

*One-on-one instruction and evaluation with a teacher
*World exploration outside of school--field trips, cultural events, etc.
