I absoultely LOVE NRC!! Both of my kids have attended there since P-K and they are now 15 and 9. The teachers are great, the staff is supportive and the Principal and Superintendent are very passionate about the kids. NRC is a "Great Expectations" school, they educate the "whole child" and focus on things like character, in addition to academics. They now have "Kids Rock" after school program where kids have fun learning! To address the reviews of other parents: Every school has a long line of cars that pick up kids and all have their "problem kids". Also, Dale has the WORSE bullying problem around (so bad they give tickets). NRC does a great job addressing the ISSUE as opposed to only the BEHAVIOR, which I love. ABOVE ALL, my 15 year old was academically prepared for SHS. She's in Pre-AP/Advanced classes with a 3.9 GPA. Unfortunately, NRC's rating is lower than what it deserves because of low test scores that bring down the overall average. There are many fascinating studies that link low test scores to low incomes and NRC is a rural school with its fair share of low income families. But, regardless of income, the vast majority of people are good, honest, hard working people.

This is the most amazing school I have ever been part of. It is very clear that all the Teachers and the Principle are very involved in the positive development of every child both emotionally and academically. I am so glad that my grandchildren are blessed to be part of this amazing school and Faculty.

Bullying is alive and well at NRC! Many students suffer from bullying and the principal does nothing about it! Several have transferred out. School discipline in general is poor, again because the principal is ineffective in dealing with discipline problems. Potentially a great school, but it will never be so unless they get a handle on discipline.

My kids have gone to this school for 4 years and it has been great! We have considered moving out of town several times and don't because of the school. The teachers are very caring and will call you personally if there are any problems. The pricipal was my son's pre k teacher and is the most caring person that you could want watching your students. if you are considering this school just visit for a day and i promise that you will want your student to attend.

I highly recommend this school. I have not had any problems with bulllying (my daughter is in 4th) She has attended this school since PreK. The teachers are very caring. The best thing NRC has to offer is a fantastic elementary principal and an all day PreK! Also it is a part of ORES (oklahoma rural educational system) and separate from Shawnee public schools, which are not all that great. Also, where I live, the kids have a choice between attending Earlsboro High or Shawnee High, and thats a nice freedom. Also this is one of the best funded schools in the area. There is a small tribal housing area near by, but for the most part there aren't lots of 'bad kids' associated with this area, like what is often associated with public housing areas. If your looking for a good school with out the stuck-up attitudes this is it!

All three of my children have attended NRC since PRE-K, and we are very happy with this school. I wish they had a high-school since my oldest will be graduationg this year, but I know that they have more than prepared her for highschool and college. We had some rough patches in the sixth grade, but the faculty was prompt in taking care of any concern I had. I could not imagine my children going to any other school and I am fortunate to be apart of the system for many years to come when my little one starts school. We love being Cougars!

My child has attended NRC since 1st grade. He has just now entered 6th. We have been extremely pleased every year with every teacher, coach and faculty member. I wish we could keep him there through high school. We are very proud to be NRC Cougars.
