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!
I love this school and everything it stands for! We are blessed with an incredible community!
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.
Best in town! Only choice to make for a good learning experience....I have three students and they have attended for five years and do not want to leave...
Wonderful, safe school where everybody cares. Well mannered kids. Great school! Perfect school for my kids
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.
Good teachers; good discipline;dedicated teachers and parents; turns out children well prepared for college -preparatory school
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!
My child has really excelled at Notre Dame. I love the security of a small school and the loving, Christian environment.
