I am currently a Junior at Notre Dame, and I love it! The teachers and councilors and very invested in students success, and the food is amazing. I have learned and grown so much from this school, and found some wonderful people that I know I will stay friends with after I graduate. During this time, we are currently keeping up with online school due to the Corona Virus Pandemic. The transition from campus schooling to online learning was very smooth, and the teachers and administrators helped the students not feel stressed during this time. Even during the pandemic, I still feel like I have learned the same amount that I would have on campus. I did not miss out on any learning, which is great. The principle is extremely kind and efficient, and always listens to her students. I am so grateful for these memories. Thank You ND, for helping me grow.

Mixed bag. In some ways, a great school. Good facilities, great arts, lots of sports, academically challenging (well certain academics). In other ways, this school feels extremely antiquated. Archaic uniform rules. Extremely homophobic and antisemitic sentiments permeate the school, but administration chooses to ignore them. (Hopefully that has changed since I went there). Most incoming students are from other private schools, so very cliquey if you are new to that scene. A disproportional amount of attention is showered on star athletes and/or kids from rich families. The college counseling team is useless, they basically tell students to apply for safety schools so their acceptance rates look better rather than helping. Admissions deeply downplays the religious aspect - but rest assured you have to take a ton of classes and go to their events even if you do not practice. Honestly if your kid is not a jock or into the party scene, buyer beware.
Overall, the community of Notre Dame is as warm as the Los Angeles weather. Teachers and administration care very much about students and their well-beings, enough to constantly push them to be their best selves in academics, sports and as overall human beings. The only thing I would like to see more of would be trust in the students and their opinions. Notre Dame students are intelligent, compassionate and talented in their own respect, so on great issues, I believe they could be great guides if only given the opportunities.
