Welcome to Notre Dame Catholic School
Welcome to Notre Dame Catholic School!
My name is Renée Cuvelier and I so pleased and thankful that you have chosen to learn more about Notre Dame Catholic School.
Great students from wonderful families, high academic standards, a well trained staff that is dedicated to serving the best interest of the students, and a supportive, involved parish truly make for a dynamic educational system. Notre Dame serves Playgroup (three year olds), Preschool (four year olds), and Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. We maintain an average of 17:1 student to teacher ratio in grades Kindergarten through Sixth Grade.
Our faith is demonstrated in our community of students who care, love and accept one another. The students are active in daily prayer and religion classes as well as participating, planning and leading weekly liturgies and special prayer activities. The Gospel values are infused in all curriculum areas. Notre Dame provides age appropriate opportunities for service in the parish, community and world causes. Students of all faiths are welcome as 30% of our current student population represents other denominations.
Notre Dame is an accredited institution with state certified teachers who hold valid teaching licenses, specialized endorsements and advanced degrees. Our K-6 curriculum is based on the Iowa Department of Education's Common Core Standards and based on current state assessments proficiency scores exceed state standards in all academic areas. Notre Dame does provide STEM activities, current technology, Title 1 reading, ELL services, Special Education services, Literacy resource and music instruction, just to name a few!
Please feel free to visit Notre Dame, attend a school-led Mass, or stop in for a tour of our facilities. We are here to help and are grateful for your interest.
Have a blessed and wonderful day!
