I highly recommend Notre Dame Catholic School to any parent looking for higher moral & spiritual foundation. Their teachers /staff are always willing to take time from their schedules to talk to us parents & keep us informed of our children's progress. I couldn't be happier with the school!!

This school has well prepared my child for high school, my child attends all honors and AP classes. I currently have a child enrolled at ND and that child is thriving also. The leadership has changed over the years, but for the best...the school is growing more spiritually with Deacon Conway as principal. Most of the teachers have been there for 10 plus years and have strong Catholic values.

Okay, most people writing (besides most recent two) are referring to the older teachers and their ways, (which were by far better..) referring to younger students. However, they are DEFINITELY not terrible. I was recommended for all honors classes at Bishop McLaughlin which has very high standards and is very strong with grades The teachers vary to be honest. I started out in second grade when we still had a sister as our principal and the two other sisters as teachers. When I was in fifth grade they had to leave.. Since we didn't really want them to go I guess none of us really had an "open mind" about who was coming in and who was going to be in charge.. The current management is definitely different from the years with the sister but is it terrible? No... Besides the fact our class missed out on a lot of opportunities and was always blamed for everything I can't say 100% this school was garbage. I probably would've liked it a lot better if they hadn't gone through so much to get rid of our principal in the first place but I truly and honestly believe they prepared me for high school in a way no public school could have. And for that I do sincerely thank them..

This school Is a complete waste of money. The 8th grade year my child has watched student above her have and been promised was not given to her. My daughter and myself had put in hours at the school fish fry for the kids 8th grade trip, which was not given to them. Not to mention the hours I have wasted at this school. I have been treated so disrespectfully, as has my daughter I personally was shocked. My children have attended this school for 9 years and never had a problem until it came under a shift in teachers and authority. Also, do not go by the other reviews on this website. At the time they were posted other people were in charge. Do not believe the promises that have been made/ they make you since, I can assure you they won't deliver.

I am the Grandparent of three students at Notre Dame. I have the advantage of being able to compare the education my grandchildren are receiving from what my three children received a generation ago. Notre Dame excels in both academics and faith formation, especially since Deacon Conway became the Principal. My only regret is that the cost is so high and there is no financial help for even the most dedicated of parent volunteers.

I am a parent of three who attend Notre Dame. We have been with the school for the past ten years and have another seven to go. (My youngest is now in first grade. My oldest is in eighth grade.) Notre Dame has provided a sound Catholic foundation as well as a superior education. My children have friends in local public schools and the depth of my children's knowledge is readily apparent. It is also a safe environment which is something I value for my children.

I am a parent of two students at Notre Dame Catholic School. I toured every private school in Hernando County before my husband and I decided on Notre Dame. The preschool (EC) program is a great balance of learning, play and faith with the most wonderful teachers. The teachers make the transition into school so easy on both the child and the parent. The small classes and curriculum as well as the encouragement of parent involvement make this the perfect school for our family.

When deciding on which school to send our child, we visited all of the Catholic schools in the area (Pasco, Hernando & Citrus counties) and were most impressed with Notre Dame. Our child started at Notre Dame in the EC (Pre-K) program and we could not have asked for better teachers to introduce our child to the school environment! We love Notre Dame and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a family-community oriented school with smaller class sizes and teachers who care for your child(ren) as if they were their own child.

We moved here in 2006, attended public school one year, not great, toured Notre Dame.My then 5th grader told us she definitely wanted to attend. I knew that if my child had a certain comfort level right away, then this was something to consider. We knew our decision as soon as we met the prinicipal & teachers. That daughter is now in 8th grade, an outstanding student, and my 4th grader, also doing wonderfully, both of them really love going to school everyday. The curriculum with Spanish and physical education in a real gym twice a week, are only part of the good assets here. The coach loves her job & kids, safety is no question, and the teachers are very responsive any time you have a concern. If you have not visited, you should. The school is a family you cannot replace and the children are well-prepared for HS.

My 2 daughters have been attending Notre Dame for the past six years. They love the smaller class size and the individual attention they receive from the remarkable teachers. There are many 'specials' offered like Spanish, Music, Computers, Physical Education and Sports. Notre Dame is a very close knit family and I would not put my children anywhere else.

My son is a fifth grader in Notre Dame. He has been enrolled since EC-3. I like this school because it a great environment for the students. I feel it is the best EC-3 - 8th grade school in Hernando County. The school is fully accredited and offers a very good curriculum and we have the best teachers and principal in the county. After a child graduates from Notre Dame and goes on to high school, they are so much more advanced then the students from public schools. I would recommend this school to everyone. Come and see for yourself. you can take a tour anytime. Steve Augello

Notre Dame is by far the best school in Spring Hill. Upon moving to Spring Hill in 2003, my wife and I reviewed the public and private school choices. But when we toured the school, we know Notre Dame was our home. The teachers, principal and staff all treat our children like family.

We have been very pleased with Notre Dame and especially their EC program. Our 3 year old son has been learning so much, more than I thought that a 3 year old could learn. Notre Dame is a wonderful school with very loving faculty and We are looking forward to the future and seeing what good, catholic adults our children turn into. Also, no, they don't expect our children to be rocket scientists, but they do expect them to learn to their potential!

I have 2 children in the school and a 3rd one soon. Teachers are very caring and well educated for teaching my children. The Principal is wonderful. Notre Dame is more than one safe school, it's a great family. I feel very blessed to have found them.

This school is the worst. They are the most unprofessional people that I have ever encountered. These children are five years old, they are not rocket scientists....Yet. I feel my $5000+ was wasted.

I Love This School! I am a parent of three children who will be attending Notre Dame Catholic School in the Fall. My oldest will be entering his fourth year at NDCS, my middle child will be entering her second year and my youngest will be entering his first year. All of my children started NDCS in their Early Childhood Education Program which is Outstanding compared to any preschool/day care program in this county. The learning atmosphere and their progression is what sold me to this school. I was a stay at home mother, but now I work just to continue to keep my children in this wonderful school. Smaller classroom settings where my children feel like there classmates are family members and parents are involved because they not only care about their children, but mine as well. Thanks you Notre Dame and Families! I would not put my children Anywhere Else!

We moved to the area in November 2005, and after researching the public school system, we decided to enroll our children in Notre Dame Catholic School. My husband and I struggled with the idea of sending them to private school. However, it has been, by far, the best decision and investment we have ever made. Our oldest son is currently in Kindergarten and is absolutely flourishing to his fullest potential. My youngest is currently in EC3, early childhood and is doing wonderfully. We have had the blessings of wonderful teachers, caring and supportive staff on all accounts, and one of the best principals I have ever met. Along with the excellent academic environment, my children thrive on the religious component also. We could not be more pleased with this school, the teachers and the curriculum. We look forward to spending many years here with our Catholic family.

My son has attended Notre Dame for the past two years. Since the moment we came to the school we were greeted by the principal who gave us a tour. It was evident that her goal was to provide a Christ centered, academically enriching program. My son is in the four year old program and is reading. I attribute his success to his two teachers. They provide an extremely challenging, hands on and enriching learning environment. He loves to go to school. The program is well rounded and offers Spanish, computers, physical education, and library time. I would highly recommend this school to any family who would like to give their child a Christ centered academically challenging place to learn!

My daughter went to this school for 11 years. It was one of the lost investments I have ever made! This school is under one of the worst staff I have ever seen. As my daughter is now in her senior year of high school she is at the top of her class. At Notre Dame they told her she needed extra tutoring. Do the math.
