My husband and I feel extremely fortunate and blessed to be able to send our three daughters to school at Notre Dame Catholic School. The academics are challenging and there is a great sense of community. Most importantly, they pray together, they learn about Jesus, the Bible, the Blessed Trinity and attend weekly Mass together. High moral standards are taught by example and expected from everyone. Between our three children we have over 13 years of education invested and we can not imagine doing this anywhere else. Notre Dame has been forming disciples of Jesus Christ since 1904 and still are today! Thank you Notre Dame; Thank you Jesus! :)

We send all of our children to Notre Dame and wouldn't think of sending them anywhere else. Not only are the academics superior, the students are taught to be solidly grounded in their faith and are encouraged to reach out and be Christ to the community.

Notre Dame Catholic school has been a true blessing for our family. Excelling in academics, the school also fosters an environment of high moral teaching, with a strong spiritual importance.

My children recieved a wonderful education at this school! After graduating, my eldest son graduated from Texas Tech in 3 years! My daughter followed and graduated from Midwestern State University in 3-1/2 years.... their education was top notch and I am so grateful to Notre Dame Catholic School for preparing them for college! In addition, the school truly is like a FAMILY. People care for one another! It was a SAFE environment for my children, and my children attended school with children of parents who were like-minded: they wanted love of God to be carried on from home to continue at school, along with the biblical values that are taught daily! My children have friends for life as they are still close with their Notre Dame friends...all great adults now! LOVE this school!

Notre Dame is such a wonderful school. The teachers & staff love & care for the students as if each child was their own. Not only do the students receive a wonderful Christian education but grow into amazing people that are rooted in their faith, love their family, great stewards of their community and outgoing responsible adults.

My children are very happy at ND. The elementary PE program is outstanding which is hard to find these days. The PE teacher is top notch and like a Saint. The current 4th grade teacher is the best you can find. She too is likened to a Saint and also teaches with the highest quality you could ask for. There certainly could be some updates with the physical appeal of the school and a more positive/joyful Religious program would be nice in the middle school/high school. There needs to certainly be a computer/technology class in the elementary more than anything since we live in a technology age. But, for the most part Christ is able to be spoken about and learned about. Therefore, there is a beautiful atmosphere and freedom to be who God created you to be in academics, sports and extracurricular activities!

I rate this school with five stars. They have won awards for being the best in many things. With the finiest teachers that use great ways to teach the children. As like other teachers, they sacrifice much, get little resouces to get the big things done. It is the best place and the only place I would send my Grandchildren.

Notre Dame Catholic in Wichita Falls is a wonderful school. The administration and staff truly care about each and every student. My daughter has flourished there academically and personally. The small class sizes are key. I would recommend this school to anyone in the area.

We have been at Notre Dame Catholic School for 10 years. My daughter just graduated with honors, earned a 4.0 and 27 hours at Midwestern State University while taking her regular coarsework at ND. She was admitted to 3 well respected universities and earned $150,000 in scholarships. We love Notre Dame!

When we enrolled our children in the elementary school we had high hopes based on recommendations from others however after attending for 2 years we pulled them from this school to homeschool. We couldn't believe how behind our children were! They took a scholastic test at the beginning of our homeschool experience and both scored below grade level in math. And once I received the curriculum we would be using to homeschool I needed to back track and cover a lot of the basics. We felt we were "paying for the environment" and didn't feel it was worth the $12,000 a year. For that kind of money, I expect superior academics and lot's of "extra" classes like art, music (besides once a week for 20 minutes), computer classes and language arts. That being said, I believe this school is worth the money once your kids are in middle school, but not for the lower grades. I also have to mention there are some wonderful teachers at the elementary school that made our overall experience wonderful.

I was disappointed with our experience at this school. As a military family we have to relocate often. We had 2 children attend the elementary campus. While they attended this school they received above average grades, Honor Roll status. When we relocated to a different base in Texas we had to move in the middle of the school year. My children went from Honor Roll to FAILING!!! I quickly found out that many of the grades my children received in class were "given" to keep academics looking superior at this school. It was disappointing to learn that both of my students were behind in academics because of the 2 and a half years we spent at this school.

Notre Dame school is head and shoulders above any other school in our city. It has rigorous academics that prepare the students for college. The athletic and academic teams are routinely competing at the state level. And best of all, the school is unequivocally Catholic. Our oldest began attending ND eight years ago, and now we have four in the school. It is a loving community willing to accept anybody. All of our children have attended the preschool classes, and there has always been an aid in the classes. It truly is an amazing program. The elementary school prepares the students to be successful in the upper campus as well. The upper campus teachers and staff go out of their way to teach our children not only academics but how to be a good citizen and Christian. We couldn't be happier with the school!

Over crowded classrooms. It advertises a small school environment. It is a small school but the classrooms are over crowded because they take as many students as they can get. But instead of getting the "promised" one on one attention from the teacher your child is in a classroom with 23 other students. No individual attention is given and the school does not provide the teachers with an Aide to help in the class. For the amount of money that is paid in tuition for this school it does not give you the individual attention is advertises.

We had to remove both our students from this school because of Uncontrollable Bullying in the upper campus. The principal refused to take appropriate action to stop the bullying because the students who were bullying others were from a rich family. So many of these students were able to basically get away with everything because they knew they would suffer No consequences. When we attended a different school we learned that our students were behind the public schools in our area in academics. We also learned that the books used at Notre Dame were outdated from over 10 years ago. Many of the students did not have a book because the school did not want to purchase books. I suggest looking at other private and public schools in the area.

notre dame school is like home away from home. the kids are so well behaved with one another.they have such great manners. everyone is like family here and of course, most important is their education. i'm so amazed at how much my kids learn. they are so advance. i don't even understand their homework most of the time. the teachers really care about their students. i have 2 daughters in elementary and 1 son in high school. my son used to be very shy and now he's just everywhere, to sports to band to ACTING! amazing!!! if for any reason we have to leave, it will be because of tuition. it's expensive but you know what...it's worth it! i can't tell you how much my kids enjoy being here and how much they adore the staff and teachers. we especially love the elementary school secretary. she's GREAT! thank you ND

My children have been at Notre Dame since age 4. I have one daughter in 9th grade and another in 7th grade. I have been happy with ND. I feel my kids are being educated in a caring environment. They are being challenged with large projects, ...science fair projects, world map layout (locate 600 places on the globe) & geneology. Although my children grumble while doing these class projects, they walk away with a feeling of accomplishment. I love the way the teachers communicate via ' teacherease' & email. You can really keep on top of your kid. I enjoy the family feeling, I don't hessitate asking another parent for help. I don't feel limited to only the parents of the 7th & 9th grade. Having no family in town, this has certainly been a plus!

We have been fortunate to be involved as parents of Notre Dame students for 16 years. We could not ask for a better education for our children. Our son was accepted to his first choice college largely due to his excellent education at Notre Dame. Our daughter is in high school and thriving in the outstanding academic environment. The students are challenged to excel in all they undertake and given the tools to meet the challenge. The faculty and staff take a personal interest in the students and we couldn't have asked for a better administrator! Our principal is an alumnus and truly has a heart for Catholic education. The students at Notre Dame are involved in community service as well as school activities. The extracurricular activities are vast and as the motto says 'Play them all at Notre Dame'. Come see ~ you won't be disappointed!

Our daughter has attended NDCS for 5 years. We are not Catholic, but I cannot imagine putting her in any other school. The morals and values that we instill at home are reinforced at Notre Dame. The students act with respect and dignity for others, as well as themselves. We are all one big family (faculty, students, parents) and are very active in the school. What a great place to get an education (with family involvement) and be able to pray aloud if you so choose!

This is our fifth year as part of the Notre Dame 'family' and we love it! Our kids are receiving an excellent education, learning discipline and respect, with an emphasis on Christian values, and our family can be as involved with the process as we want. We are impressed by the teachers and appreciate the diversity, including children from other countries. Lunch costs about $12.50 a week, while tuition is a few hundred dollars a month, but our children being able to pray in school, with their teachers and classmates is PRICELESS!

We love the academic environment that our children are surrounded by. We have one child that has graduated and is thriving in college, she attributes her success to the wonderful teachers at Notre Dame who demand excellence in everything. One child is in High School and is involved in everything that is offered to her. Our elementary school child loves her teachers and is thriving. Notre Dame combines academics, faith, sports, service to others and a rich learning environment to every child. We are proud to say our children attend Notre Dame Catholic School.

My 3 children graduated from Notre Dame. My eldest 'clepped' out of 12 hours of college classes immediately after he graduated in 2001. He graduated from college in 3 years as will my daughter. There is no doubt that this happened due to their outstanding education at Notre Dame. We want our children to be prepared for college, and I believe the teachers and staff work very hard to do this. Notre Dame is big on 'respect.' We have high expectations for our students, and they rise to meet them! I wish current parents and prospective parents could see what our 'recent' graduates are accomplishing...doctors, professionals in every area.....the list is long as to what they are doing in the world! I attribute that to their Notre Dame education!

Notre Dame is by far worth the money. The faculty and staff are great and the atmosphere for the children to learn is superb . The children thrive academically as well as socially and we know it is the perfect place for children to grow to be successful in life. Notre Dame is a true family.

We are very happy with our choice of Notre Dame. Our children enjoy the slose knit atmosphere and we feel like the staff & teachers & kids are our family (especially since we have none here). The curriculum is good & our children are getting the benefit of a pariochial education with emphasis placed on ethics & character. All the students are well mannered & polite when we see them in the community as well.

My son graduated from Notre Dame a few years ago and my daughter is in High School here now. I love seeing students reading books and studying in between extracurricular activities and in their free time. It really shows a commitment to academics and a good work ethic. The students & teachers are always involved in some sort of service project for our community. Our faith is put into practice at Notre Dame.

This is our 8th year at Notre Dame! Our four children are very happy here...two in elementary, one in middle school and one in high school. We believe that our children are getting an above-average education in a Christian family-like environment. We never planned on staying for high school, but realized that the education our high school student is receiving will lead her into any college she chooses!!

I have 4 boys, one in elementary, middle and high school. Our 4th will start next year. We've had our kids at Notre Dame for 4 years and it was the best decision we've ever made for them. They're taking advanced classes, and are welcome in any sport or activity of their choosing. It's so much fun for them. Every parent and teacher knows their names and our family. The teachers sacrifice a great deal financially to teach our children and they do it with smiles and because they love to teach in this environment. What a great community.
