I have been at the Novato Unified District since elementary school, now that I am a senior I have realized that there's nothing like it. The teachers that I have had go above and beyond to assist you! The academics are great as well, although I would have liked to have a wide variety of science classes to pick from. Overall, every campus that I have attended are very diversity with a friendly atmosphere!

Not only did I attend elementary school and middle school in Novato, but I also attended high school. The Novato unified school district has some of the most caring, hardworking, and mindful teachers and staff. They overall pushed me and molded me into the person I am today. NUSD ensures that students are successful, learn core values for life, and are prepared for what college has to offer. NUSD is an amazing school district that has served as not only an education promoting institution but as an institution that promotes students being citizens of their local area. They are able to do so through community service requirements which serve to direct students to be active community members.
As an out-of-county student, I was nervous going to a school where I knew no one. Novato High School (a part of NUSD) was a great place for me because I was welcomed by students and teachers alike! Whenever I had problems with classwork or subjects, teachers were more than happy to help me. I have a lot of great friends there, some being teachers. Being a part of Marin School of the Arts, which is a part of NHS, was another great experience because it exposed me to different artistic areas in ways other high schools couldn't.
