I went here about 50 years ago and am blown away by the differences. We had nuns for teachers and brown and yellow uniforms. But I loved this school. I remember how rugged the courses were and by ND's standards, todays public schools seem weak. I went to the elementary too and our 8th grade teacher, Sr. Patricia Anne, was the principal as well.
