Notre Dame School, Santa Barbara

Notre Dame de Namur Sisters opened the doors of Dolores Grammar School in 1906 in the old Amory Hall belonging to the parish with 150 students strong and Our Lady of Guadalupe School in 1917. The school was conceived of by Father Villa SJ for the Mexican people in that part of town.  Three Sisters went door to door in the neighborhood to gather students.

In 1974 the two schools were combined and renamed Notre Dame School. Sister Ann Carmel Badalamente served as principal.

Sister Judy Flahavan came on board as principal in January 2013. (She previously served as principal at Nativity School in Los Angeles.)
