I have two children that attend NDA and they love their school. Great education and great school spirit.

My daughter has been a student at Notre Dame Academy for the past 2 years, having completed Pre K and Kindergarten. It is a wonderful school and her teachers have been excellent! It is a warm, caring and nurturing environment that offers a quality education academically. The teachers, staff and parents work together as a team with the ultimate goal of helping our daughters grow and develop academically, emotionally and spiritually. I am so happy and proud to be a part of the Notre Dame Elementary School family!

My daughter recently enrolled in Notre Dame Academy as a transfer student. Before I enrolled her, I was worried about how taxing the transition will be on her. I am very happy to say that the transition was seamless. The girls in her grade welcomed her in the lunchroom on her first day, and you would think that they were friends for years. I am very happy with the academics and the environment that this school provides. Choosing NDA for my daughter was the best decision my husband and I ever made!

I had recently enrolled my daughter into Notre Dame Academy Elementary. To say I am completely thrilled with this school is an understatement. Her teachers are wonderful and are providing my daughter with the foundation for long term success. My only regret is not enrolling her sooner.

My daughter has been at NDA since pre-k. She has been educated, nurtured, protected and loved. Sr. Rose was the very foundation of NDA and she is very much missed. I believe that Mrs. Signorelli cares very much for her students and faculty, is very intelligent and will continue NDA's greatness going forward. She is devoted to the mission of Notre Dame Academy and will strive to continue an atmosphere of exemplary education.

My child has been in this school since 2nd grade and she is completing 6th grade this year. If you notice, there is a shift in opinion that took place after Sr. Rose Galligan passed away in January, 2012. We personally have encountered incompetence, bullying, a complete lack of communication between the administration, teachers and parents and a generally horrific environment. My daughter now HATES going to school. This school is a petri dish full of bad bacteria. If your kid is bullied, they do nothing. They lack leadership, compassion and direction. It is a rudderless ship and I can't pull my kid out soon enough. The parents are every bit as cliqueish as the kids. I know kids whose parents put them into activities in OTHER schools, just to get away from the mean girls in their own class.

Reading the latest reviews about NDA saddened me, yes most of what was said indeed is true, however there is also wonderful things happening at NDA. There is definetly a lack of communication between the faculty and the parents, and personally I feel that the parents have way to much control over what happens in the classroom. That being said I have faith in Mrs Signorelli, it was her first year as principle and I'm confident that this up coming year will be a good one. I'm not giving up on NDA its a wonderful place and I'm proud to have my daughter here. Go NDA
