MND is an extraordinary school and community. The academics are top notch; the faculty and staff are committed and caring; and the students are hard-working and ethical. I would be thrilled to send my daughter here.

I am a 2009 graduate of Mount Notre Dame and I have a little secret for all you parents and grade schoolers out there: MND is the best high school in Cincinnati! Alright, so I'm a bit biased, but I can tell you that I had the best high school experience possible at this school. I was a bit nervous about coming to high school from grade school, but MND was so welcoming I had no trouble transitioning at all. My teachers inspired me to follow my dreams. I wouldn't be on the career path I am now if it wasn't for the faculty at MND. MND encouraged me to push myself, and I discovered many new interests I never even knew I had! If you are wondering which high school to choose, look no further than Mount Notre Dame! Best high school in Cincinnati. GO COUGARS!

I went to MND and graduated in 2005. I also transferred from a public school and had the time of my life at MND. I formed friendships that I still have today. The comment earlier about MND being snobby and elitist is an absolute joke! MND is the blue collar private school in the Cincinnati area - down to earth hardworking parents, students, alumni and teachers are what makes the school so special. The academics are also great; I graduated from the Air Force Academy which is currently ranked #7 in the nation for undergraduate business schools. The school is so special that when my grandfather passed away, the principle and religious leader of the school came to the funeral wake. He passed away in 2010 and I graduated in 2005; the school truly cares about its students, past and present.

I am an alumni of Mt. Notre Dame. I graduated in 2003 and it was one of the best experiences of my life. I was very well prepared for college, I was able to find the person I wanted to be and the teachers and staff helped with that. I can honestly say that I miss the closeness of the small, tight-knit community where everyone has a shared faith. You don't fidn that anywhere else. Also in response to the last review posted, high school is what you make it. If you didn't like MND then it's your own fault. The faculty has made every oppourtunity available for a student to make the most out of their high school experience. Thanks MND!

I am a current senior at MND and I hate it. Honestly, this would not even be a fifth or sixth choice of where I would liek to go. The majority of the faculty are snobby and money driven. This whole school is money driven. I think that is the basis of each and everyone of the activites presented to us. The day I graduate from MND will be the best thing that has happened these past four years. I always heard that high school will be the best four years of your life. Because of MND, this is not true for me. Unless your family is rich and well known...MND is not the place for you and if you are then you'll fit in perfectly. Personally, I would never send my daughter to this school and MND is not a place I would recomend to anyone.

I am a current senior at Mount Notre Dame, and I am so happy that I spent my four years here. I transferred out of Public school into MND and I have never been happier. Also, besides academics MND has so much to offer. Since I have been at MND our volleyball team has won state, our golf team has won state 2 years in a row, we have had swimmers win state, a basketball team who is playing in the state semi-finals this weekend, as well as a dance team who has won state and placed as well as 7th in the nation. This school has so much to offer. And the faculty really honestly cares about each student. I love MND!

My daughter is growing into a self assured, confident, thoughtful adult. The MND staff is interested in each student's success. I could not be happier with the school and consider the tuition I pay to be an investment in my daughter's future. This is money well spent!

I graduated from MND in 2001, and really got a good education. If you get involved, it makes the high school experience that much better!

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.
