I have the unique experience of having transferred to Novi High School in the middle of 9th grade. Having attended a different school in a different district (and country!), I know what other schools look and feel like. Novi High School at first felt claustrophobic. When one class ended and the wide, windowless halls lit by grainy ceiling lights filled with hundreds of students shuffling to the next one, I felt like a sheep being herded.

In my junior and senior years, my classes took place in the other, newer side of the building (the renovated part). There it was rainbows and daffodils. I could take the more advanced courses where everyone in the class wanted to be there. I could see the outdoors through actual windows. I could ready myself for the social and academic parts of college.

9th and 10th grade at Novi High School were awful, but 11th and 12th grade were amazing.

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.
I am a senior at Novi and I have been in Novi Schools since kindergarten. That being said Novi High is extremely challenging and competitive academically. Having grown up in Novi schools I feel more prepared than my counterparts who are newer, but the curriculum is still challenging regardless. It is very common here for students to take multiple AP and IB classes a year and we are constantly comparing ourselves to each other. For me, the competitive nature of our school makes me work harder but I know for some students it does the opposite. Socially, our school is very cliquey and segregated. If you are new you have to get involved with sports, choir, or theater otherwise it will be very difficult to make friends as people are not very welcoming. Overall, I know when graduate I will have the resources needed in order to do well in college which is really whats important in the big picture.
