On balance, Notre Dame has done well by our three children. There is a sense of community that is comforting, the teachers care about their students, and the academic offerings are good, but not great. This is not an "overachiever factory", it is a place where the children are educated to be good,

They generally get out of the experience results proportional to what they put into it and to what their parents contribute in the way of guidance and encouragement. If I had to choose all over again, I would send my three children to NDHS. The quality of citizen, indeed, of Christian, that emerges from this school puts most public schools to shame, SAT scores be damned. Read less

I disagree with the totally negative reviews of this school. While EVERY school has its problems, you can't entirely blame the school for them. It is a good school with countless opportunities for teenagers who choose to take advantage of them. If someone thinks it's "overrated" then they are free to

As my son graduates from Notre Dame this year, I look back on the last 4 years and feel he got as much from it as he put into it. He got a good education, got into a good college and seemed happy during those 4 years. We would choose ND again in a minute. Read less

Terrible school, very overrated. Expensive for a poor quality of education. Bullying is not addressed as well.

As the parent of two Notre Dame graduates, I would have to say that the great majority of the teaching staff is outstanding! I caution any parent however that the campus ministry program needs more administrative supervision. It is a tremendous responsibility to guide students in their spiritual life

My son is a freshman at Notre Dame. I have read the other reviews and so far I have to disagree with the negative ones. This school has done so much to assist the incoming freshman with getting acclamated and in trying to disuade their fears of a new environment. When I went to a catholic high school,
... Read more none of this was done. I am envious and would love to be a teenager again. My son has nothing but great things to say thus far. School is what you make of it. If you do not participate then you will be unhappy. The same goes for life.. If you stay home and complain that noone includes you, then you will not be included. Besides being a christian environment, the size of the school being small, provides the students more opportunity than if they were in a large schoolmore students. Read less

Notre Dame HS is overhyped. The curriculum is OK but no better than the public schools in the area. At the price they charge its not a great value. Its a friendly enough environment for the students but the average SAT scores are nothing to write home about.

Notre Dame is a very, very, very competative school athletically and theatrically. If either are your reasons for attending this school, look elsewhere. (I say that out of personal experience.) The academics are nothing special, either- nearby public school students have ranked higher on the SATs

I am a recent graduate of Notre Dame High School and have nothing negative to say about the school. I went to my public high school freshman year and transferred to Notre Dame where I was welcomed into a loving and caring environment. The relationships I developed with my teachers and peers could not

It prepared me for the work and gave me the tools I need to be a better student. Notre Dame has taught me everything I need to know to continue my life and I would recommend this school to anyone.
