If you are looking for a school with strong community and family orientated aspects, a more challenging curriculum and a well organized structure I would highly recommend Notre Dame. The school offers many activities, events and sports for students and parents to get involved with. Class sizes are ideal and the teachers are excellent. Academically Notre Dame is very strong, and is developing kids with good manners and confidence.

As a parent of a child who recently graduated from Notre Dame School I can tell you this is a wonderful school.Notre Dame provides a faith based education steeped in academic excellence in a caring community atmosphere. If you are looking for an excellent pre-K or kindergarten program or are considering transferring your child from a public school, I would highly recommend Notre Dame.

Wow, what a wonderful school! The principal here is actively involved in my child's education. She's there every morning to greet every child as they enter, she's there at recess with them every day outside (my child has enjoyed some time even jump roping with her!), and she's there at the end of the day to see them as they leave. She often sees, comments, and signs my child's tests from various classes. Teachers challenge students with creative and rigorous academic projects and guide them with consistent, faith-based values. Parents are involved and inclusive and pass that on to their children. A great experience, not just a great school for my child.

Great school. Small class size. Dedicated to the spiritual and academic growth of your child.

I love Notre Dame School. The principal knows every child personally and makes positive comments to them weekly. The teachers, though they have a tendency to come and go, are very warm and knowledgeable. The parental involvement is outstanding and it is like a small family rather than just a school. My children are receiving an outstanding academic experience as well as a Christian experience and I am very enthusiastic you will love it too!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
