I think your first and third sentence are bad English, the second sentence should be the default answer and the current correct translation ("I live on the north side, but my school is on the south side.") is unnatural, but maybe acceptable.

At least the second sentence is acceptable now

In the US, "in the north side" is wrong. It's always "on" for talking about sides.

"I live in the north, but my school is in the south." should also be accepted!
