Who We Are

Welcome to Notre Dame Elementary, a small, independent, co-ed Catholic school for students in preschool through eighth grade. We believe in the power of a nurturing, connected environment designed to help children become lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and well-rounded human beings. We are open for in-person and distance learning with space available in all grades.

Notre Dame Elementary is rooted in the educational tradition of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, who founded the school in 1851. We take a personalized approach to learning and create a school community that makes students feel safe and at ease. We are supportive of individual needs and recognize that every child has their own unique potential. We feel fortunate to be their guides and give them the stable school environment that serves as a solid foundation for reaching, growing, and becoming all they can be.

Congratulations to the members of NDE's Class of 2021!  These students have all received their acceptances to notable high schools on the SF Penninsula.  Our students are excited to be accepted by Notre Dame, Serra and Carlmont High Schools, just to name a few.

For the next few weeks these students will be busily preparing for their final two months as NDE Vikings! We are all very proud of their accomplishments and look forward to celebrating with them as they graduate this June.
