Notre Dame High School Reviews

At Notre Dame High School, I got to learn a lot about what it means to be a woman of impact. I learned lots of things from my classes, but more importantly I learned a lot about advocacy and what it means to speak my mind about issues. I learned that being an adult and getting an education is more than acquiring information, getting a job to support myself, and achieving a level of prestige. In growing up and becoming a member of society, from learning from my peers (and from teachers in the classroom and the school's environment/atmosphere overall), I have come to realize that life is not just about my personal life and my personal goals, and it is very important to engage with social issues and what is going on in the world.

This school has a great academics program that definitely prepares students for the rigor of college classes, shown by the wide range of AP classes offered without a limit. The best thing about this school is its diversity and acceptance of all and how it encourages students to get involved in social activism. Though it is a Catholic school, religion is very lowkey and barely stressed, compared to other Catholic high schools in the region, and the school is fully accepting of all religions and beliefs.
So welcoming and passionate. Amazing, tight-knit community that is incredibly nerdy and fun. There's something for just about anyone here - with so many clubs and extracurriculars. Come here if you want to work hard, make friends, and grow your interests - that's how you'll get the most out of it!
