Notre Dame School of Dallas welcomed the 2015 school year with a newly renovated building. Students and faculty greeted the school year with bright classrooms, large windows and new furnishings. Dark classrooms and corridors have been replaced with light and playful paint and lockers. Large windows bring in natural light and views of the surrounding Uptown neighborhood. The second and final phase of the project is focused on new construction and will include an expanded front foyer and administrative offices, library and media center, and new gymnasium and cafeteria. These improvements and additions are the result of a $12 million Capital Campaign called Hearts & Hammers.
“We were under a tight schedule for 3 months with a goal of having the current building remodeled by end of summer. Students and staff are delighted by the improvements and we are so thankful to the many donors who have made this dream a reality,” stated school principal, Theresa Francis.
Second and final phase of the project is currently underway with an expected completion date of December 2015. Donations are still being accepted to fund this final phase.
Notre Dame School educates students with intellectual disabilities and facilitates their integration into society. As the only school in Dallas exclusively serving this student population, Notre Dame is a unique educational resource in our city and provides special education to 150 students ages 8 to 21. Notre Dame School is located in Uptown, just north of downtown Dallas.
