Nova High School Reviews

Nova High is part of the Nova school system--Nova Blanche, Nova Middle, and Nova High. I moved here my sophomore year not knowing anybody. Nevertheless, I really enjoy this school. It's very high in school spirit and I guarantee that you'll never feel anything less than a Titan--the school mascot! The teachers are amazing, they truly care about the students. The coursework is splendid--the school has been graded A for about 6 years straight now! The courses are competitive, but thats because Nova has a lot of opportunities for students to earn college credit and the staff/counselors do a very great job at making sure students don't fail and feel comfortable with their course loads. As a student, I'd recommend this school to anyone. Its diverse with many clubs so anyone is bound to find their niche.

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!
What I like about Nova High School is their attention to detail when it comes to hiring the best staff. Not even just the teachers, even the coaches are highly qualified and experienced and not just that, they also care very much for each and every one of their students and it really means a lot. The schools' attentiveness to the success of their students is admirable and highly respectable as well. Nova is diverse in their efforts to accommodate to the future goals of each student. Overall, amazing school, but if there's one thing I would change is the tenacity of the enforcement of rules. It would sometimes make it difficult to engage socially with other students and affect the way the security was perceived by students. Despite disagreements on rule enforcement between students and security, the students remained well-behaved and got along with security easily.
