Nova High School Reviews

Generally, my experience at Nova has been phenomenal. I've been pushed to my best ability not only by my parents, but by my teachers who gives us long speeches in class on our career paths in life. This shows that most teachers love their job and that they take their jobs very seriously. I hope to keep seeing nova high school grow throughout these years. Also, I've learned to publicly speak which will most definitely help me to progress in college. A lot of high schools don't make sure that all students are on track; however, Nova high school takes the extra step in knowing what is best for their students. AT NOVA WE DO THE BEST!

I loved attending Nova High School. It has been the most memorable time of my life. The professors want the best for you. I'm in college now and I find my classwork so easily. The professors at Nova will be hard on you but it is worth it. I see many students struggle with college topics, and Nova WILL over prepare you like it did me. Extracurriculars at the school are fantastic. There are over 40 clubs! I personally think clubs are important to keep a student grounded in school. Clubs are something Nova has mastered. During my time I became head -photographer for the yearbook, I co-founded and was the president of the Glee Club, my junior year I was head treasurer of the Drama club, and my senior year I was the president of the Drama club. I always had something to do and something to work for. Young students need that! Nova was great. 10/10 would recommend.
Nova High School deserves a 4-Star rating solely because it has many AMAZING teachers that you can’t go through the span of four years without having had one of them. These tachera don’t just limit teaching about relevant class topics, but they teach you habits and life lessons that will never fade and are extremely important.

Despite these teachers, Nova has a lack of communication when it comes to extracurricular activities, which causes some clubs or activities to fail, while certain groups get more attention and financial aid. Often times, students are not sure of what is happening within their school, which creates a huge lack of school spirit. Communications should improve to solve this issue.
