Principal's Messages

Welcome to a School of extra-ordinary respect! We are all proud to be a part of the Notre Dame family. We pride ourselves in focusing on academics and building positive relationships with others. The faculty is focusing on being a champion for all students within our school family. The goal is having all students feel that they have one adult in the building that they are connected to and at the same time meeting their full academic potential.

In my 24 years in education, I pride myself in building relationships and exceptional learning environments for our students. I have been heavily involved in High School Re-Design that focused on student support and Assessment practices. My other passion in education is supporting those students with Diverse Needs.

Every school year is an exciting opportunity to make a change in our own lives and for others. I encourage all students to get involved in many clubs we have to offer. As well, to share with others their gifts and talents that God has provided them in Athletics and the Fine Arts.

The Catholic Faith is integral to the success of any school community. We want to strongly encourage all students to embrace the Golden Rule: “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” (Matt. 7:12). With this, we will keep central to our hearts the concept of family and respect towards others.

On behalf the entire Faculty of Notre Dame High School, I wish everyone a wonderful and memorable school year.

My very best,

Frank Durante
