    Notre Dame High School - Belmont Reviews

    Notre Dame Belmont is turning into a circus with the way this administration runs the school. They clearly do not care about their students, and only want to keep a clean facade of how people on the outside think this school is run. The teachers are constantly changing, with little respect into how the students feel. In fact, when the students have anything to say, they are ignored and the administration hopes it is swept under the rug. The sports program is clearly negligent to any team that is not bringing home a banner every year. The school is not even up to code and will refuse to build anything due to the fact that asbestos is in the wall, and they do not have the funds to keep up with the prices! If a student has an injury, they are forced to stay on the first floor, causing their grades to suffer. Not to mention the incoming classes have so many social problems that girls want to transfer out before the semester has even finished. Girls, do not go here.

    It is a prep school, so you are constantly challenged, assigned endless amount of homework plus at least 100 hr of community service required. I liked that it effectively prepared me for college, and many students went to best university in the states, like UC Berkeley, UCLA, Boston College, NYU. However, school community is quite conservative. It’s a private catholic school. Students are from the wealthy families so are the faculties, and they expect money for everything. It’s not very welcoming to the diversity of students. The food at cafeteria was terrible and super expensive for a small portion! I never had good meal there!
    I am a senior at Notre Dame and I absolutely love it! Being a small all-girl school, there is such a great sense of community and students are really close with their teachers. I feel academically challenged but I can feel that my teachers want me to succeed.
