In August, the Portsmouth Area Chamber of Commerce recognized The Notre Dame Schools as its Business of the Week.
The Notre Dame Schools are organized into two separate schools – Notre Dame High School and Notre Dame Elementary. Admission to the schools is open to all faiths and expressions. Religion, values and morals are integrated into their curriculum. Their goal is to empower all students to achieve their full potential encouraging them to become positive, contributing members of the community. At Notre Dame, education always has been linked to values and all students are required to do service projects. By serving others, students gain confidence as well as make a difference in their community.
