Nova High School Reviews

My son started Nova in the 10th grade after spending a very disappointing year at Franklin High School, he will be graduating next June. Nova gave him focus, teachers were very focused, dedicated, the teacher retention rate is high, so there are very experienced people with the kids. A wide variety of sports, clubs, etc. Law Program is stellar. Debate is very aggressive and good for anyone interested in that path. I'm sure the other programs are equally good, these are the two I have most experience with. And swimming, been tough with Covid. The school is large, so if your child is not good with that, might be a bit difficult, but even so, my son did fairly well. He came from a 'small' school background, (Montessori and Charter Schools). I would highly recommend Nova High. And with any school, keep up with your kid, and it will work just fine. Good Luck to you and your student!

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.
Nova is such a diverse school, in many ways. Students come from a large array of backgrounds, and they have tons different of different interests. The high school offers a plethora of different courses that all cater to the likes of its students. There are programs for everyone and classes are taught by truly passionate teachers!
