Our school is a place that is safe and unique in the fact that we provide such an extensive variety of programs. Our curriculum is not only academically excellent but builds foundational characteristics in each of our students. We dedicate ourselves to our students not just during the school day 8-3:30, but beyond because we offer our after school program and summer school program which keeps children engaged during the often unsupervised and dangerous after school hours. We offer a holistic learning environment that really supports the development of students academically, spiritually, and emotionally.

My school is a caring place where boys and girls can come to learn in a safe and loving environment. They will exit the school with a solid education and the character to better their own neighborhoods. Our parents are so supportive because they know that Notre Dame supports their own educational and spiritual goals of their children.

NDMS is an amazing place for young women. The staff and faculty go the extra mile to make sure the students succeed and that they are supported in every aspect of their education. NDMS also has the highest test scores in Milwaukee, which is a great reflection of the work done each day to help students. LOVE this place!

This school is truly amazing. Notre Dame Middle School embodies the ideal of what education should be. It teaches students about working toward a positive, fulfilling and successful life. The school stresses respect toward all and fosters a community of responsibility. Part of the foundation is to emphasize that the students need to share their gifts with the larger community creating an atmosphere of not only community but service. In an economically disadvantaged neighborhood in Milwaukee, WI, Notre Dame Middle School brings not only a strong education but a strong Catholic education, and helps the students prepare to move on to college-preparatory high schools.

Notre Dame is a small school with a family feel. Students can get an excellent education with enough support for a lifetime. The staff actually tracks students and alumnae beyond 8th grade and offers guidance for their futures in education.

Notre Dame Middle School is dedicated to helping Hispanic girls to get ready for high schoola and complete it. Their care and concern continues after the girls graduate from eighth grade. Contacts are kept up, tutoring is offered. Most of their graduates go on to college!

Notre Dame Middle School is a bi-lingual school of excellence designed especially to assist Hispanic students in Milwaukee, WI to overcome the language/cultural handicaps in learning in order to be leaders in the community. The percentage of those who graduate from High School and go onto College is phenomenal. It was founded and continues under the sponsorship of the School Sisters of Notre Dame who have been strong and leading educators in this country since 1847 when they came to America - and Milwaukee - then, to teach German immigrants. Go! See for yourself what an awesome group of students these are.

It is a Nativity Miguel model school sponsored by the School Sisters of Notre Dame that is community-minded and promotes education that transforms the student in order to ultimately transform the world. It is more than a middle school in that it provides after school activities for the students each and every day, has a creative summer school component, and follows its graduates through high school and college in a strong graduate support program. It is special because it focuses on the needs of Hispanic girls who are considered 'at risk.'

NDMS is the very best school in Milwaukee for young, Hispanic girls. Not only is the education tops, but the added value of leadership development for the girls is priceless. And each girl's family is also enriched by her going to NDMS - the family gets involved and there is a sense of a strong community at this school.

Our teachers and volunteers are determined to empower our students, not only through their teaching but also by seeing to it that each young woman has the opportunity to be personally mentored while at Notre Dame Middle School, and even through her college years!

I am graduating Notre Dame Middle School this June and i loved it very much. One of the reasons i enjoyed being there is because it challenged me to prepare myself for High School and my future. One other reason i liked it was because of the after school program. I hope many young girls go to this school because it is the best Middle School someone would want.

I am one of Notre Dame Middle School students. I really love the school. We are going to have our new building done by next month, hopefully. In my opinion I think it's good that we get to go to more challenging classes if we are adcvanced. There are many oppurtunities. My favorite Enrichment program is Ballroom( not because we get to see Nativity boys, but because it is a program that we have that not many other schools have the privalige of having. This is what I have to say about my new school. I enjoy it very much and all of the staff is enjoyable to be with.
