Notre Dame School*
Notre Dame School, founded in 1963 by the School Sisters of Notre Dame, provides a quality education to students (ages 6-21) with a diagnosis of mild to moderate mental disabilities. Through this education, the school strives to facilitate each student’s integration into society. Notre Dame is guided by the firm belief in the dignity of each person as a child of God. Notre Dame School is the only independent school in the Dallas area devoted exclusively to educating children with developmental disabilities. Visit the Notre Dame School website.

The Rising Stars Volunteer Tutors, which began in 2005, is a supported ministry of the School Sisters of Notre Dame which endeavors to strengthen reading and math skills of at-risk students. Rising Stars matches volunteer tutors who work with individual students in their own school environment. It is like a "school without walls." Visit the Rising Stars web page.
