The History of Chicago Notre Dame High School for Girls

Chicago (population: 2.8 million) is located along the shores of Lake Michigan in northeastern Illinois. From its early days as a Potawatomie settlement, then as the site of Fort Dearborn in 1803, which led up to the formation of the city and its incorporation in 1833 and 1837, respectively, the "City of Big Shoulders" became a major location in the US for various reasons. Railroads and water transportation were two reasons why Chicago was one of the fastest growing cities in the country during the 19th Century.

Today, numerous railroads and highways of interstate, US, state, and local designations bring people together in the city on a daily basis, as does air traffic at O'Hare and Midway Airports. Chicago is a melting pot of people from many nationalities, making it ethnically diverse, and thus, is referred to as "the cultural, economic, and financial capital of the Midwest" (according to Wikipedia).

Chicago Notre Dame High School for Girls was opened in 1938 by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur order.  The school was originally located in a beautiful new building at 3000 N. Mango Avenue on the city's northwest side. Photos of this building, now used as a Chicago Public School known as Marvin Camras Elementary, are available above.
 
In 2009, due to dwindling enrollment and costs of keeping the building open, the students were moved to the upper floor of St. Ferdinand Catholic Grammar School located at 3115 N. Mason Avenue in Chicago. This arrangement lasted through the end of the 2015-16 school year when the high school's enrollment for the 2016-17 school year was projected to be 31 total students for all four grades of high school. It was decided by the Chicago Catholic Archdiocese and the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur to close the high school completely on July 1, 2016.
