Notre Dame High School 2

I am a current student at notre dame, quality teachers are few and far between, the athletic program highlights football while it is our weakest sport, and belittles other more advanced sports teams we have, the administration is a sham, the worst part of this school is the slapped on "technology advancements" our buildings are falling apart AC is near non-existent, and we insist on forcing our students into paying 600 dollars on an iPad that is completely wasteful. while there are a few teachers that are stellar it is heavily outweighed by the poor teachings skills of others, if you are strapped for cash dont budget this school by its tuition, allow for massive fees such as "technology fees" (on top of ipads), mandatory fundraiser donations(dont even understand how its a fundraising at that point) and other such fees that will decimate your checkbook. you have been warned

Notre Dame High School 4

Most teachers at ND are excellent & want to help the kids learn. Principal is rarely at ND or, if there, is totally inaccessible for problems. That's why there's the months long delay to take care of "issues" the March 22, 2010 parent mentioned. ND is a VERY small school - doesn't need a principal & president & can't afford the 2 salaries. Uncontrolled President spends $$$$ making ND "pretty" - like painting all ND "green & gold" brown to "match" St. Catherine's. WHY? They're not "connected" He's publicly said making ND 'pretty' will increase enrollment. Just got several desperate pleas for $$ The football program is bankrupt. Not surprised though because several years ago friends donated the $$$ to upgrade volleyball nets or they weren't going to be allowed to hold league games in their gym. ND desperately needs all new "outside" admin that truly cares about what is important - the kids, teachers & regaining the 70's & 80's tough academic reputation - not band aid cosmetic improvements. Lose all the administration. Respect the teachers & work with them to get ND back to its former glory rather than "painting" over problems & just filling desks. It's not what it used to be.

I have one student at Notre Dame. This school is a pretty good school for academcs. The sports programs are just ok. Most of Notre Dame's teachers are caring, involved professionals. Unfortunately there are a couple who have no clue on what they're doing. The administration also needs help. Students issues are not adressed properly or in a timely manner. Issues that should take a couple days to handle end up taking two months, yes two months.

Notre Dame has made great strides over the last few yeas to improve it's image in the community. The Administration and Teachers are dedicated to educate the student as a whole, including academics, spiritual and extra curricular.
