All four of my children attended ND in the 90's and went on to graduate, with honors, from college. ND prepared them for academic success but also nurtured their need to give back to the community. They have been involved with Big Brothers/Big Sisters or volunteer in various organizations giving back much more than they receive. ND was the first school in the area to begin mandatory drug testing and they have always been 'pro-active' about this issue. Academic standards and communication between parents/teachers/staff has improved vastly since my children were here! Most teachers have always gone 'above and beyond' expectations and care about the student as well as educating them. I would highly recommend Notre Dame as an outstanding academic institution that fosters a love of Christ while also respecting others views.

As a parent of a current ND student, I would rate ND as top notch academically. As to the comments by the parent about ND being a party school, I do not see that. I am sure there are some circles of students that prefer to party and put education second; that is a choice the student makes. Is this not a life lesson?? While ND does promote its sports program, they also have a terrific theatre, band and choral program. My child participates in these & they are terrific & demanding in a good way. I also have to say that many of my child's teachers have gone above and beyond to ensure that my child succeeds. The key is that the child has to WANT to succeed and has to put their best foot forward; the teacher's cannot do the work for them.

As a graduate of Notre Dame High School, I can testify to the amazing preparation I received for college. Not only did the teachers care about my grades, but they also cared about me as a person. The school's goal is to create well-rounded individuals who are models of Christ to the world around them. Notre Dame is a Christian school, not just a 'private' school like other in our community. They exist in order to create a love of learning and a love for Christ and his Church. The class that I graduated with is now composed of doctors, a rocket scientist, a model, a record company exec in LA, and numerous others. They certainly prepare their students for whatever they want to do in life, but also focus on a love for their students!

I am a graduate of Notre Dame and I highly recommend this school. We are so fortunate to have a school like Notre Dame in the Chattanooga area. With its strong academics and arts programs there is a good blend for any student to find their niche. The sports are important part of the learning process as well. The principal is fantastic and the teachers are very dedicated.

In short, I don't recommend this school. The academics are strong. However, the teachers are not. If your child doesn't push themselves in school, the teachers certainly will not. Also, the arts programs are very very poor...if not nearly non-existant. The school places so much emphasis on sports that they basically neglect the visual and performing arts. This is also a HUGE party school. If your child is not a partier, they will be very unpopular at Notre Dame. The facilities are very weak for a private school. No tennis courts, no pool, no track, no dance room. In short, you do not receive the education that you pay for and expect from a private high school. I would recomment either getting your money's worth at a school like McCallie, Baylor, or GPS, or saving your money and sending your kid to a great magnet school like CCA or

Notre Dame prepared me for college and beyond. The teachers were very attentive and the AP classes (especially English) were great!

Notre Dame gives a student an enriched faith-based education that will allow him/her to take on the world!

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.
