While I recognised that it had been touted as an excellent school by others, I didn't see that until after graduating. Looking back, I realise just how many resources were available for students to take advantage of. The large selection of AP/IB courses, variety of electives, and gamut of extracurriculars (with the capacity to create additional ones) was fantastic. Additionally, although students at Novi frequently complained about the food (being that it's cafeteria food that can be expected, however), after comparing notes with students from other high schools during my college years, I believe that Novi does (or at least did) provide a nice, more inclusive range of foods. Additionally, I think there are a lot of great teachers who are willing to take extra measures to facilitate and deepen students' understanding of course topics. Finally, I believe that I came to university significantly more prepared that I had thought I was going to, and more prepared than a number of my peers.
