Notre Dame High School Reviews
Rating 4.17 out of 5 234 reviews
Notre Dame High School in San Jose has a warm welcoming community! The high quality teachers and staff are always accessible to the students.
The young women at NDSJ are well-prepared for college academics and equally well-prepared for public speaking, community outreach, and succeeding past high school. Our daughter's experience was welcoming, supportive, and intellectually challenging at a time when young women can be surrounded by pettiness and being ignored. She learned in a diverse and compassionate community. Attending Notre Dame was one of the best choices she's made and we are thrilled with the outcome! Ora et Labora! Kudos to Notre Dame!
I liked the size of the school, it made for a more intimate setting where the teachers all knew your names. The color of the school was a bit dull.
It's a small school that allows for community building and close relationships with peers and teachers. Guidance is always provided to ensure success of their students.
I made a lot of connections there. It's a really good school and your teachers are 100% willing to help you with anything you need. I really bonded with a lot of teachers and students there. It's a great environment.
Notre Dame provides many opportunities that students can partake in, from volunteering/service to getting connected with possible job opportunities. The teachers and staff are so kind and amazing, they truly want to help you succeed and get you to where you want to be.
I had a positive experience attending Notre Dame overall. The diversity of the student body is amazing but lacks in overall spirit.
NDSJ is a very supportive and empathetic community where my daughter was provided guidance and encouragement every step of the way!
I like the close bonds of sisterhood within the study body. Being culturally diverse is one pride that this school takes in. Although the school may be physically small, there is a huge sense of community and belonging among the students and faculty members. The teachers are very caring and willing to help their students both in and out of class.
The teachers were very welcoming and encouraged the growth of every student as an individual. The community is very diverse and a great way for students to grow as women of impact. Opportunities are numerous and everyone is accepting of each other.
Over the years, I have grown a huge appreciation for Notre Dame High School. The students and faculty and staff help make the environment feel like a second home. I love how ND encourages its students to be involved with leadership. They help you discover where you fit in and where you can thrive. I also love the endless opportunities ND offers to its students. I have been able to connect with people who I never thought I could meet. This school has given me a strong sense of community and belonging.
Notre Dame High School in Downtown San Jose has given me opportunities to grow, learn more about my identity, and establish good ethics and habits. As someone who used to procrastinate every single assignment, I feel confident in saying that ND has taught me how to better my study habits and balance school-work with my self-care. I would recommend any 7th or 8th grader looking for a competitive and challenging environment where they'll feel welcome and safe.
Going to Notre Dame helped me to become a strong young woman with a sense of justice for undeserved populations. I greatly treasure my time at Notre Dame, getting to know the teachers and counselors who really care.
Notre Dame is the number one all girls catholic high school in Northern California. We have been rated by Niche 2 years in a row. Notre Dame has allowed me to find my true self, and prepare me for my future and beyond. They have such an amazing welcoming environment and of course there is fun and great food all the time since we are located in downtown San Jose.
As a student, I felt motivated to try new things especially reaching out to the community. Academically, Notre Dame challenges me and prepares me for the future without the stressful finals.
Great place for academics and a strong supportive community. I’ve learned more about social justice and advocacy than I would at any other high school.
It's a great school with a lot to offer. The staff and students are ready to work with you and it is an extremely welcoming and comfortable community.
