Welcome to our K-8 Free Public School


Our motto says it all: Beyond 4 Walls. Quite simply, we seek to challenge young lives to explore beyond four walls through expeditions and outdoor discovery. To accomplish this, we try to educate every child through an inculcating character traits, habits of learning, service projects, and outdoor education and wellness (OEW)--and using projects that bring together the investigation of important science and humanities topics with the world that surrounds our students.

If you are already a family member of NRCCS, we couldn't be happier to be educating your K-8 child. If you are considering NRCCS--sending your child, donating, becoming a volunteer or otherwise connecting with us--check out this video and explore our website.
