I liked the teachers and the well-rounded education I received. Furthermore, school trips such as immersion trips offered the students the opportunity to travel within and outside the Bay Area and contribute to the communites visited. Another aspect that fuel school unity were the required book for all grades to read prior to the start of the new year. The topics of these books ranged from immigration to the Rwandan genocide. The introduction of reading material allowed class discussions to further the student's mind and thinking of the world around them. In closing, a major asepect of the communit at Notre Dame was the diversity of the student population and thr facility. Overall,a great school for young women to transition from middle school.
It is a very diverse school and the all-girls environment makes it a supportive focused campus. You can find many teachers who are amazing and genuinely care about their students. Many peers I know and myself, can name at least one teacher that they feel comfortable talking to. The people in the lunch line are my favorite people. You can make some really great friends here. The academics are what you make of it. You can take the high-pressured route or take it easy. Many options and courses are available to you. The counselors are very sweet.
