I love the brotherhood shown at Notre Dame, everyone is very close and no one is excluded. The teachers and the school work may be hard, but if you go to th teachers, they will do everything and anything they can to help better you for the next level. If anything needs to change it is the food. Personally, I think one of the strongest aspects of Notre Dame is the English program. The English program is very tough, but the teachers are so good at explaining and influencing you to think outside of the box. I have had papers where i have been completely lost, but after asking questions and seeing the teacher after class, everything was clear as day and the paper was a much easier to write.

There is a great community at Notre Dame, and everyone gets along very well. As an all boys school, there is a sense of brotherhood and a connection among everyone to the Catholic faith. There needs to be a better focus on education, specifically concerning the teacher selection and course load for students. The guidance department should focus more on making students comfortable in their preparation for the college process.
Notre Dame is a has been institution. It is trying to live in 1985 in 2018. It’s athletics along with academics are far behind the needs of it’s students. It’s administration is incapable of running the school and cares more about the image rather than its students. I was a two sport varsity athlete who was also a member of the nhs so I believe as if my opinion is one of a student who is motivated to better itself unlike my fellow students and teachers. They care more about diversity quotas than preparing students for college. This once great school with a brotherhood that was so unique to itself has been destroyed by an incapable liberal administration that will do anything to destroy our once great school and it’s traditions. Now instead of the holy cross tradition it is rather about your holy paycheck. Consider your public high school before this place.
