Notre Dame School was founded by the School Sisters of Notre Dame in the fall of 1963

They started with only 19 students. At that time, there were no classroom programs for students with intellectual disabilities in Dallas.  In 1972 when the school moved to the University of Dallas campus, enrollment had grown to 108 students aged 6 to 12.  In 1973, a vocational component was added to the school programs to serve the needs of older students aged 13 to 21.  Notre Dame moved to its current location in the Uptown area of Dallas in 1989.  This central location has allowed for expansion and offers additional opportunities for vocational training.  The school currently serves 150 students aged 8 to 24.
