A Message from our Head of School

Welcome to Notre Dame High School’s website, and to another school year - NDB’s 166th, by the way.  As we begin,  I want to share some powerful stories from the past few months—stories that define who we are as women and a school dedicated to teaching young women.


This past summer, two NDB students (and sisters), KC. and Arabella Sunga, travelled to the northern part of the Philippines on the island of Luzon, to work in an orphanage.  They brought with them school supplies, clothes, toys, and books purchased from their own savings and fundraising activities.


This August, K.C. and Arabella shared their story with faculty and staff.  Afterwards, we all let out a collective “Wow,” so impressed and proud of these young women.  As a school that lives and breathes the Hallmarks of a Notre Dame de Namur Learning Community, we are so proud of these two NDB students!


During this summer we heard from Jayna Ortiz, Class of 2016, who is studying psychology and political science, on a pre-law track. Jayna is at Loyola Marymount University.  She eventually hopes to use her law degree to serve the community.

“...life after NDB has been filled with new responsibilities and obstacles,” wrote Jayna,  “but thanks to the skills and experience I gained as a leader at NDB I feel  I am well equipped to handle them.”

We are so proud of this remarkable young woman!


The Class of 2021 - 133 strong,  - with their good energy and enthusiasm,has already made a mark on NDB.  One member of the Class of 2021 said it best:  “I love it already!  It’s a fun and exciting place that will foster my learning and will help prepare me for the future!”


NDB’s halls, classrooms, athletic fields, and gym are filled with more stories like these.   I invite you to experience (or return to!) NDB.  We are still the same, but we have changed in so many ways!
