"I have never met teachers as passionate as Notre Dame’s and I’m sure my class can agree that these teachers went beyond academics in caring for us. They mentally and spiritually raised us, continuously assuring us that we can depend on them for issues outside of academics at any point of our lives."

Avianna San Nicolas

"On those days your failures will nearly prevent you from moving along with your dreams, but I challenge you all to have courage every day of your life, to persevere in all you do despite any doubts that may fill your mind, remembering this very quote from our Foundress Blessed Theresa Gerhardinger, “All the works of God proceed slowly and in pain but then, their roots are the sturdier and their flowering the lovelier.”

"We were lucky to have started such a defining period of lives here at Notre Dame High School. When we began our journey as students, we accepted the standards and expectations that came the title of being a Royal.  Whether it be as a student, athlete, or simply a friend, we strived to uphold the values that set the foundation for this school, making it unlike any other on Guam.  Rigorous coursework along with a family-oriented community provided an optimal environment to learn and grow not only as a student but also as a person."

“Not only has Notre Dame strengthened my Catholic faith and provided a profound education, it has also given me a home away from home and for that I will be eternally grateful. This school upholds a certain greatness that extends beyond the classroom through its students and alumni, which is why it is such an honor for me to stand up here, as a representative of my class and this school.”

Notre Dame continues to develop individuals to become the best leaders in our community. Personally, Notre Dame has been instrumental in playing a strong role in both my personal and professional roles. With virtue and knowledge being the foundation of the school, the skills I developed both in the classroom and socially have groomed me to be a respectful and confident individual. The faculty, staff and student body have added a sense of fostering characteristic, which in turn, has molded me to who I am today. Current students and Alumni should maintain a humble heart and a strong sense of Royal pride today and always.  Mr. Vince Lombardi said it best when he said, "Leaders are not born, they're made." Those leaders are made at Notre Dame.

I am truly grateful that I have instilled the importance of Family, Love and Humility in the different jobs I have held and continue to hold, because of my upbringing and education. Notre Dame High School is one choice I thank God I made. My daughters Maria Taitano (class of 2009) and Josephine Taitano (class of 2012) also attended Notre Dame. The Class of 86 will always be my Family. While attending Notre Dame, I learned that prayer, being humble, respecting others, and giving of oneself was our mission in life and this was what we were being groomed to be or do.

Notre Dame provided such a nurturing community where I felt comfortable voicing my opinions, sharing new ideas, and really developing my sense of identity. The faculty and students cultivated a spirit of support that I believe I carried with me throughout my post-secondary experiences.  There was a true sense of care that I experienced at ND and I strive to transmit this same sense of genuineness to my students. Years after leaving ND, I still feel the same support from the Royal community that I felt as a student-- and I believe that is one of the greatest gifts I've received from ND
