Notre Dame de Sion School of Kansas City was founded by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Sion in Kansas City, Missouri in 1912 as a Catholic school, albeit one which accepts and welcomes students of other faiths as well. It is located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kansas City-Saint Joseph.


Notre Dame de Sion is one school with two campuses. The co-educational elementary school (Montessori preschool through 8th grade) is located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Kansas City. The all-girls college preparatory high school in south Kansas City is located just off I-435. The school began an extensive renovation project in 2004 with improvements being made at both campuses. The high school is undergoing a massive physical update, the first since its original construction, with improvements to existing classrooms, administrative offices, a new chapel, gymnasium, and fine and performing arts center.

Notre Dame de Sion was recognized in 2007 for academic excellence by the Catholic High School Honor Roll as one of the 25 best Roman Catholic high schools in the United States.[2]
