bad school. doesn't deserve one star. i am questioning the good reviews it should be the school it self . stay away to protect your child self esteem from getting shipped off by the administration .
my child constantly reported a hair in the cafeteria food. poor heat in the winte,r draft comes from the old windows and children feel so cold. bad cooling system when the children need air conditioner .... very old main school door all they do is painting it .old security system .
i do not recommend this school
The principal doesn't have the emotional intelligence. The ability to manage her own emotion and recognize it. As well as the emotions of others .an emotionally intelligent leader is usually calm and grounded. The principal doesn't care about what you say and what you explain , she does all the talking and does not master listening to your explanation. Or concernes. She stepped on my child's self esteem isolating her the first day of starting this school year while my child has her name in her class table her books and her teachers were inquiring about her.
At the cafeteria my child was kept isolated for hours and the principal told her she was not accepted in school any more. The school did not call me to inform me. My child did communicate with me via iPad.
My child is suffering this cruel behavior of the called school exemple. The principal and leader ????
My child was expelled from school with no legal or logical based ground. She was asked an assignment work to do during the summer. My child spent the entire month of July working with a licensed teacher to accomplish the work to get expelled the first day of school . While all
My child's friends were telling her that her name was on the 7 th grade list at the same class of hers with her name on her table. And her books kept for her. The principal was saying my child is retained and expelled because she doesn't meet the school academic level. My child moved to Notre dame mid 6 th grade was happy to be in this school had a good friends that she loved. The principal for a reason that has to do with her and her only. Expelled my child hiding behind a private schools right to accept and expell without being held accounted in front of the law of all the emotional damage she caused to my child.
Bad leader. Very bad administration no communication between them and the parents. , no call returns privileging kids over others. ... stay away from this school it's all about money and gifts
NDA isn't what it used to be when Sr. Rose was principal. It's not the worst, but certainly no longer the best either. Many girls in my daughter's class misbehave and the teacher seems to have no control. Same thing we experienced in previous years. Sr. Rose took disciplinary action to ensure NDA girls became proper women of society. Unfortunately there's only one class per grade so there's no way out. I'm hoping the girls mature with age and future teachers have more experience & sternness to control this bunch. Academically, NDA gives a well-rounded education. Still, Science and Social Studies could be better. Right now they don't have textbooks and only memorize facts for test purposes. The Reading/ELA is too slow IMO. My daughter is at least 2 reading level ahead of what they do in class. Math is okay but not challenging--I know some public schools that are way more advanced in this area. Parents tend to supplement at home or with Kumon. I do like the culture and society of NDA overall, and what it should represent, so I won't take my daughter out yet. She's still on the young side so I'll wait a few more years since there should be improvement in the upper grades. Tutoring is offered but nothing is done too really help the bright students. The middle school has an AP program, but we didn't get that far yet.
