Academic excellence. Engaging extracurriculars. Enriching
service programs. Treasured traditions. Notre Dame Preparatory School provides
a transformative education.
In 2012-2013, NDP was the only private middle/high school
in the state of Maryland recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School. With enriching
programs like STEAM, Humanities and award-winning performing and visual arts,
and competitive, championship athletic teams, students excel in all areas of
their interests. I truly believe that there is something for everyone at NDP!
There is something for everyone at NDP!
Technology anchors the rich and diverse curriculum in
both the Middle and Upper Levels. In the Middle Level, the use of SmartBoards,
laptops and even electronic microscopes in science labs add an important
dimension to 21st century learning. Notre Dame is a wireless campus, and all
Upper Level students carry a laptop, equipped with everything they need to
succeed in NDP’s classrooms. Additionally, teachers’ use of Blackboard and the
library’s accessibility to more than 300 electronic databases makes learning
interactive and fun for our students.
Though technology is an integral part of NDP’s
whole-school curriculum, there is still a strong, personal bond between teacher
and student through traditional instruction and interaction. One teacher told
me, “We really love what we do, and
it rolls off on to the girls.”
Our website is a wonderful sneak-peek into all
that NDP offers its students. Notre Dame’s commitment to educating the whole
girl can be found in the various sections of this site. I
encourage you to visit it regularly to see all
that NDP can offer your daughter.
