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!

Bus Route Students Please Take Note of the Bus Procedures, Some are new.
1) Students that ride the bus from school to home routes need to ride a shuttle bus over to the high school. Walking from Ring Lardner to the High school is not permitted.
2) Students are to ride their assigned route bus if available at RL as a shuttle to the high school.
(Students have been allowed to ride any shuttle to the HS. This has changed, if available as a shuttle, they are to get on the bus they take home.
3) Once a student boards a shuttle bus they must ride that bus to the high school. Shuttle buses that are full will close their doors. There will be no getting off the bus prior to departure unless the driver or the school administration determines it is necessary.
4) Upon bus arrival at the High School, all transfer students will be stay on the bus until High School dismissal bell rings. (This has not been the case in the past)
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)
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.”
Ring Lardner Middle School serves 655 students in grades sixth, seventh, and eigth. Built in 1965, our school was named in honor of Ringgold Wilmer Lardner, who in the 1920's was one of America's best-known journalists and writers.
