A small school with such a sense of family and belonging for the students. The environment for your child to experience their high school years is second to none. They have a vibrant athletics program and it is a ton of fun to support them, being a small private school. Students from so many different backgrounds, ethnicities, and walks of life. A great little school and the students who graduate from ND get a half price tuition deal at Sacred Heart University!

The past four years have been a blessing. The teachers truly have our best interest and want us to succeed for our future careers. Not only are they active and question us about our school life but also ask about our social life, making sure we still live that teenager life. Our principal Mr. Cipriano, does his best in keeping the student body happy. He listens to us and always takes suggestions. He’s chosen a great stuff to educate us and I couldn’t imagine it differently. It will be sad to leave but I can l already picture myself back there to visit. Once a lancer always a lancer!
Notre Dame is like a small family where everyone is involved and looked after. Everyone cares about each other and being a small school really shows how close everyone can be. The sports here are amazing, with coaches and teammates wanting health and happiness to be the most important thing overall. The arts programs are also very diverse, with many activities for anyone to find their place in this school.
