Nova Academy Early High school is the best school I have attended. The teachers are passionate about their jobs. They are committed and dedicated to help their students be successful. They spend time one-on-one with students to ensure that they are getting the help they need. We are like a big family. We have a period that is called family, we go to this class everyday. We have the same family teachers for all four years, this helps us form a bond with them and with our peers. They not only help us with our academic success but they help us with any personal problems that we may have. The staff is kind and very caring. We have fun activities in which we include everyone, we do kindness projects to remind students to spread kindness. Nova gives the students the opportunity to take college classes and AP classes, these courses prepare us for when we start college or university.

I liked that at this school, you have the chance of getting college credits by attending classes at COD or online courses through Concordia University. The teachers are great and very involved in the student's life. There is a family program where everyone is assigned a teacher and they stay with that teacher and group of students for the whole duration of high school. There is a small amount of students, so everyone knows everyone. We have cool celebrations before Thanksgiving and Spring Break, where everyone brings food and eats together. It's a really great school. The only thing I dislike about it is that there are no sports. There are sports clubs, but there is no competition outside of PE class.
Attending this unique charter school has aided and benefited me in a lot of ways. The overall staff makes an effort to connect with the student and work with his/her strengths or weaknesses. This school loves showing school spirit and create fun activities that become an overall traditions such as picnics. They offer a period of the time described as Family class and it helps new students build new friendships and overall bond. Classes are much smaller, which benefits the student, allowing aid from the teacher one on one. Teachers offer a lot of aid after school and are so friendly and humble. Definitely recommend this school if you reside within Coachella. This school definitely prepares you for college and help you with university applications and scholarships applications.
