I would highly recommend Notre Dame to anyone looking for an excellent education in a very caring, small environment where you and your kids feel like part of a family.

Having grown up the Catholic school environment from from elementary through high school, I can honestly say this is one of the most loving, generous, compassionate and academically excellent places to send a child for individual and spiritual development. The staff is exceptional. They are respectful, not only to parents and students but to each other. They are a true family.

My child just started NDA this year and it has been wonderful! He came from another private school where the quality of education had gone steeply downhill. NDA has provided an excellent educational experience and has made him feel very welcome. Everything isnt perfect as there is always room for improvement. However, the attitude and atmosphere is genuine concern for the students and their education. Well Done, NDA

As you can see there is only 2 reviews for this school. Which obviously is one happy principle and one happy student. This doesn't say much. I should know I've been there. There are much BETTER choices in the souhtend than NDA. I wouldn't recommend this school to any one. Unless you have a straight A student who never learns to socialize and wants to be gauded by the teachers and principle. I can say they are the most geniune hypocrytes I've ever encountered. They CLAIM to teach about Christian Morals and behavior but they sure don't practice what they preach. I'm warning any parent out there please don't pay such high cost for your child to learn about unchristian morals and behavior. This school could care less about the child they just want your money. They got mine but not for long.

Over 32 years, I have taught at 7 different Catholic schools, 1 private inter- denominational school, and 2 different public schools. Which has been the best as far as effective teaching/learning, student conduct, and leadership/organization? Two of the schools I've taught at tie for first place, and Notre Dame Academy is one of those two! If I still had a school-aged child, s/he would be enrolled at NDA.

I have been very happy with Notre Dame, as well as my daughter which is even more important. The school is very well organized and on task. The people are friendly.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
