My family has been at Notre Dame Academy for four years, and I can honestly say it is a privilege to be associated with the school. The teachers and administration emphasize character, integrity, hard work, knowledge, and spirituality. My kids work hard because they see the children around them working hard; the families at this school value education. In four years, we have had seven different teachers, all of whom are still teaching at the school. Fundraisers at the school include an annual fund drive, a gala (optional), and a Fun Run (student raised donations, optional, but encouraged). Everything about this school is considered and well thought out, and as a parent, I have seen them make the right choices, time after time. Of all the schools we toured/interviewed, Notre Dame is the one that most strongly emphasized learning and knowledge, with an inquiry based approach that creates students as learners, making them partners with the teaching staff. This school is a wonderful gem, and I think that would be completely clear to anyone who takes a tour, or sends their child in for a day to shadow a class.
