I have a personal connection to Notre Dame School on many levels. I taught at the school for 5 years and really wanted my own children to experience this unique community. When I moved back from the city, I was craving a warm and nurturing environment for my son starting preschool. Notre Dame was at the top of my list. My children have grown so much academically, emotionally and spiritually at the school over the past few years. The families that choose Notre Dame are truly what makes the school so special.

We bought a house in the Blackhawk Heights section of Clarendon Hills a couple years ago knowing that Notre Dame School was top notch and Notre Dame has NOT disappointed!!! The kids all love each other and my daughters confidence has grown tremendously. The Principal knows how to hire and manage great energetic teachers! The facilities are like new. The parents have been so helpful and friendly to us. My son is going to attend the 3year old Preschool program in the Fall. They limit the class size so get your kids enrolled while you can.
