Institute of Notre Dame Reviews

Institute of Notre Dame or IND is such a wonderful school that really promotes sisterhood and love. From the moment we began looking into attending IND we were welcomed with open arms. I feel that the staff really puts the students and their needs first, even if it's not a total success at trying. They never give up and will do everything to keep the families informed. IND is 170 years old and has been a part of the Baltimore community. This was a wonderful option outside of attending public school. I love the small class sizes and the college prep help that was offered.

I became intrigued with IND, an all-girls school in the heart of Baltimore City. This was a school that was way out of my comfort zone.
Throughout those four years I was exposed to more knowledge, friendship, faith and diversity than I had in all of my life before high school. My classmates hailed from 75 zip codes, 6 counties, 2 states and multiple countries. I gained an appreciation for countless cultural, economic and religious backgrounds. Through my service work within the city I learned what it means to be an empowered citizen and to make a difference with the blessings afforded me. Through the Catholic values instilled in us, I gained a moral self and a deeper Christian conscience.
I am able to continue to grow and learn in a rapidly changing world. I know what it means to lead the way in a world where it is so easy to sit back and go with the crowd. I accept myself and others as people of dignity and worth, no matter who they are or where they came from.
IND is not only the school I attend, but a second home. Why yes we are in the heart of Baltimore City, I have never felt so safe in a place before. It seems as if many other schools stereotype us, but they are all so wrong. We here at IND are a giant big family. We all care for one another and the school is small enough that you are able to know each and every person you pass in the hallway. I came from a public middle school and I did not know anyone coming into the school. Going to IND was the best decision I have ever made. I was instantly welcomed by everyone and was able to make friends quickly. We are very diverse and I love this because it actually prepares you for the real world. IND pushes you outside your comfort zone and really helps you become a strong independant woman. I have been an honors student every year and I feel as if the teachers are always willing to help you in your time of need. IND offers a wide variety of sports, clubs, and traditions you can take part in. As a senior, I am so sad that I will be leaving a place that has changed me for the better. I have gotten accepted into 10/11 colleges I applied too and am still waiting to hear from the eleventh and have received over 500,000 dollars in scholarships. Always say hi to Hildie, and you will go a long way here at IND! I can only hope that perspective students have as great as a journey as I did here at the Institute of Notre Dame.
