Novi High School Reviews

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.
Review Novi High School
Novi high school offers a high level of education that will properly prepare students for their future plans. Novi high school offers a diverse course selection that has the potential to challenge students and prepare them for their college education. Accompanied with this high level of academics are exceptional teachers that serve as role models for these students. In addition, the high level of diversity within the Novi community allows students to experience opportunities unique only to the Novi school district.
If you are a transferring student from a different community, good luck. The people here are, sometimes, hard to connect with, especially in the AP courses. Although I came from a different culture, I consider myself American. The school itself has a couple of very... special teachers. Some are known to be fantastic, while others are known to be cruel and too harsh, but are still able to provide results. The teachers tend to care more about the AP scores, rather than the GPA (for AP students). If you're an AP student here in Novi, best of luck. The teachers here can be very diverse in their grading system, even if they are teaching the same subject.
