Home town atmosphere with people who care. Rugby is nestled in the Geographical Center of North America, and has been a major attraction to many. Both our public and private schools offer great opportunities for students to learn and grow. Neighborhoods around the Rugby area are safe and we appreciate that our children can walk to the park and ride their bikes without any need to worry.
