About Us

Welcome to Moreland Notre Dame School

How good the good God is... Why can't we proclaim it to the whole world?

Moreland Notre Dame School, located in Watsonville, California, first opened in December of 1899 and was dedicated on March 7, 1900. The school owes its existence to the generosity of Mrs. Margaret Moreland and her confidence in the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.

"Moreland Notre Dame School provides a faith-based, Christ-centered education for our daughters. They are developing educational skills that will benefit them for many years to come. We are confident that they are receiving a high-quality education at MND because of the commitment of the teachers and staff who care deeply for them."

"Being part of the MND 'family of families' has given our family a sense of community and belonging."

- Hudson Family

Our son is going into the 8th grade and he has had boundless opportunities, with no limit to what he can achieve as a result of attending Moreland Notre Dame. Whether your child plays a sport or an instrument, acts, speaks persuasively, has a passion for science, wants to deepen his or her faith, or yearns to serve others, your child is nurtured, challenged, and cared for. There is something incredibly special about the Moreland Notre Dame community and our son has thrived here as a result of it. The relationships our son has forged with students, staff, and parents are deep and lasting. He is ready to attend a Catholic college prep high school and continue to flourish!

We have had 3 children experience a Moreland Notre Dame education. Our school is a community of caring teachers, students and parents. My children have always felt safe and comfortable at Notre Dame. The education that the children receive is personal. The teachers know their students and can tailor their efforts to individual student needs. Notre Dame provides a faith-based education in a family-type environment, successfully preparing students for their future education.
