School Reviews

I have 3 children enrolled at Notre Dame Academy. I have been truly impressed by the quality of teachers and administrators at the school. My children are eager to attend, excited to share what they have learned, and overall thriving at school. The art and music programs are top-notch; those educators are inspiring the students to excel at every opportunity. Of course in a small school the community is a very important aspect, and Notre Dame has an amazing community of parents and students. Everyone is welcome and involved, which is a wonderful feeling, especially as a parent who did not grow up in the area. I have enjoyed building friendships alongside my children through the past four years, and look forward to spending another 10 years as part of this amazing school!
