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.

"As an alumna of Moreland Notre Dame, I have had the opportunity to experience an education from this school firsthand. In the years since I have graduated, the school has remained a pillar in the community and continues to be a center of caring teachers, students and parents.

There is so much more than excellent academics being taught and it is a place where my boys have made great friends and memories and will continue to do so as they continue forward with their education."
