  • Viking Pride!

    Viking Pride! It is more than what we do on the athletic field or court. It epitomizes how we feel about being part of the Niles community. Niles is a great place to live. It is also a great place to learn, to play and to be. Viking Pride embodies how we feel about ourselves and our community. Niles Community Schools, in partnership with the community, is dedicated to inspiring and preparing all learners through diverse opportunities to challenge the present and enrich the future. Viking Pride is Alive!

  • Inclement Weather and School Closings

    When it comes to severe weather and the potential for a school closure, I know that the sooner the decision is made the better for staff, students, and parents. Typically, we make a decision to close for inclement weather collectively with Brandywine and Buchanan. Our goal is to make this decision before 6:00am. (More)

  • District Lays Out Strategic Plan

    After months of gathering information from community stakeholders through surveys, workshops, forums and other means, leaders of the Niles Community Schools district have developed a new strategic plan that will help guide the district in reaching future goals. On February 1, 2016, the Niles school board ratified the plan by approving the district’s new mission statement, vision statement, beliefs and goal statements — all of which are components of the strategic plan. “To use a Viking analogy, we wanted everybody to have their oars in the water at the same time and all pulling together,” said Greg O’Toole, school board president. “I think this was critical to getting to that point.”
