I'm currently attending and honestly, it's a great school. Not entirely diverse, but there is a lot of diversity. The education is good, helps students who need help and accommodates students that are ahead of their grade level. There are plenty of clubs, multiple instrumental, choral, sports, creative, etc. Guidance and nurse are both amazing, they are willing to work with each student to help them get through the day well. The new staff this year are absolutely amazing- a huge step-up from last year. They genuinely care. The freedom that students get: eating outside for lunch, free periods, no uniform, is a perfect level, not too much, but enough to be comfortable. Also, the way they've handled COVID-19 is incredible. Webcams, headsets, in classrooms, optional online learning, masks, 6 feet apart signs, hand sanitizer, etc, they've done everything we could ask for. Not any bullying or bad drama from what I've experienced so far.

Cons
1. Overwhelming amount of homework. 2. THEY LIE TO YOU! I was giving a tour of the school and the guidance councilor listed colleges that nda students simply do not get into. He makes sure to only list "good" colleges (johns hopkins, no students ever accepted. Holy cross, 2-3 students (top top top of their class) Northeastern, roughly 1 student gets in. 3. Always ask you for money.4. SO UNORGANIZED. 5. Not many clubs and activities to choose from.
6. Teachers are very unempathetic. A teacher may let you leave class once a week (keep in mind 90 min classes.) to use bathroom/nurse/bubbler.
7. PART TIME TEACHERS! This one gets me very upset, student needs to communicate with her teacher who may only be present in the school 2 or 3 days a week for a certain amount of hours. Also keep in mind that the nurse is part time.
10. No diversity.
PROS
1. off campus privallages. 2 free periods. 3 love in action requirement.
My daughter has been a student at Notre Dame Academy for over three years now and the change that I have witnessed not only in her, but in the school is unbelievable. She has just blossomed into a smart, a bit outspoken, but polite young woman, and I can’t wait to see where these next few years bring her. The campus has gone through some really great changes. The gymnasium looks incredible, they built a new work out gym for students and athletes, food services is great with healthy food options and snacks for throughout the day, they have a brand new security system with video cameras spread across campus, her classes are challenging but she’s keeping up, and the communication from teachers is great. She has already begun the college planning process and the assistance and knowledge provided by the college counselor... that alone is worth the Price of tuition. If you’re looking for a high school to send your daughter (or 7th and 8th grade too)- this is it.
