Distant dream comes true
Notre Dame House School is a small hole in the wall place, with some pretty amazing people waiting inside. With a small space and class, it’s very easy to connect with people around you—not to mention get your schooling done. The two teachers are very understanding. They recognize that life can get in the way of one’s goals, yet they will push you to reach success.
Being a part of the Co-Op program at the Notre Dame House School has been a wonderful and enlightening experience, showing me that there are some teachers who really do care about their students’ success by offering different ways of earning credits. It’s terrific to have a couple of great people on your side during what can be a tough part of life for some.
The hours I work can go towards my Co-Op while I still get paid—this is called paid Co-Op, so working at my job also helps me earn high school credit, which is pretty amazing with a busy schedule. Most schools offer a Co-Op program, but with this smaller class, you can gain a positive relationship with the staff, even though very few days are spent in class.
Without the Notre Dame House School resources and staff, becoming a high school graduate would have been but a distant dream for me. Now that goal is right around the corner. Thank you Notre Dame House School staff; you have been a great help on the bumpy road to success.
