Speaking as a senior attending this school I have a lot of very honest opinions and evaluations. Academics are all okay, compared to other schools that don't have certain AP/IB classes or programs that Novi High School provides. However it is very competitive at our school. We have even built ourselves a reputation on our rigorous courses and excellent grades that certain colleges recognize us. Now you might believe this is a good thing but it isn't. Certain colleges accept only a number of students from our school since there are so many of us who are so well off considering grades and other achievements. It is frustrating when we compare ourselves to other schools where their acceptance is a lot easier than ours. This competitive nature of our school forces students to achieve higher and higher grades and take even more rigorous courses and at younger ages. This sets the bar higher and higher making it harder on students.

While many students, including myself, may get stressed and annoyed with school in general, it is easy to forget how fortunate we are to attend such a nice school. Parts of the school may be older and confusing, the building is maintained well and renovated. Most teachers here are good or excellent, but no school is perfect and that does include Novi. Administration does a decent job connecting with students, and in general is very organized. Sports are taken seriously here and more then 2/3 of the students take part in a sport. Although, almost other teams hate the football team for their unfair "attention." The arts here also receive much attention which is cool to take part in and here about. The school spirit here is amazing, on green and white day before homecoming 95% of students participate and are generally excited during the fun pep rally. Overall, it's school, so don't expect it to be alot of fun, but for what it is, I'd definitely recommend Novi High School.
A school dedicated to academic excellence, a racially, ethnically, religiously and socially diverse community and student body. Novi is one of the few districts around that holds its Combined Arts Department department very highly. Award-winning in all of these, including Major VI, NHS' competitive high school a cappella group.
Unfortunately, diversity has its downsides. while this district is very accepting of everyone and a great place to grow up, high school can be EXTREMELY competitive. Pressure to take AP classes and students comparing themselves to each other in academics can be stressful and at times overbearing. If you are a parent looking for a great place for your children go, Novi is the place. Just please encourage your children to do their best, not better than everyone else, so many of my peers grew up like that and were truly miserable most of the time.
