We chose NDP over Brophy, Chap, and Scottsdale Prep. After careful consideration, we chose the school best suited for our son. Students at NDP can challenge themselves academically by taking advanced honor-level academic courses. Plus, even though NDP has only 900 students, it plays up and competes in the second highest tier of AIA sports (now 5A, competing against South Mountain, Paradise Valley, and Sunnyslope). Our son loves it and is very happy!

Hit or miss. The principal has chased a lot of the good ones away. There are some good ones left.

This is a case of great school gone very bad. New principal is beyond awful. Does not know the 1st thing about leadership.

This use to be a great school. Developed students, made them grow. The new principal is terrible. He's chased away many of the good teachers. They try to catch the kids doing things wrong. So sad. Save your money. Hopefully, you'll see changes in leadership than can right the couse of this once great school!

The teachers are hit and miss. Some are great, some are truly awful. Many parents hire external tutors to teach their students what they should be learning in school.

This is a Catholic school where students who are serious about their faith are teased and excluded by the many (it seems to be about 50/50) students who aren't Catholic. That doesn't seem to show integrity.

Notre Dame is hit or miss. Some great teachers, some awful teachers. The bigger issue for us has been the students. The school is full of cliques, with some truly cruel students in leadership positions. If there are issues, the teachers and administration react by blaming and shaming the victims (telling them to try harder to be part of the cliques). Most parents, teachers and administration do not model caring, inclusive behavior. Also, how much money you donate directly impacts whether your student will get the classes they want and attention from the administration. Not a really bad school, but a disappointment for our family and our children.

NDP really is a community and family for the students and parents. A great choice in education!

Good school. Great kids come out of this great community in N. Scottsdale. It is a newer school.

Schools cannot change people. Honesty, integrity & fairness is a life long endeavor. The school does try hard to teach these traits.
