The school is struggling. A recent change in administration is a start, hopefully, but it's not going in the right direction. There have been renovations to the building, much needed, but they have lost sight of the fact that this is an academic institution. There needs to be renovations done to the staff and curriculum. Its stale. Many teachers are great! But the not so great ones are weighing it down. The chaos and frustrations caused by math teachers who don't teach is overwhelming. The administration shut down any parent communication. They are dismissive and unprofessional. There are regular requests for money, constant actually, but if a parent sends an email looking for answers or changes, it is dismissed. They want your money but not your involvement. Unless of course, involvement means fund raising.

Notre Dame Academy is a great school. I'm a senior in high school and I have made life long friends here. The education is great and many of my classmates, and myself, are heading off to great schools! The athletics department is superb, noting multiple championships and several play off appearances in almost every sport. I would definitely recommend Notre Dame Academy.
NDA offers a variety of clubs and organizations ranging from neuroscience, to Spanish club, and even food club! Every student can join these clubs no matter if they take that specified class or not. Personally, I am involved in Students for Soldiers, SADD, Junior Classical League, Spanish club, and food club! This school has a great variety of extracurriculars one may get involved in. However, it is difficult for one to create a club. It is possible, but administration doesn't make it easy.
