Novi has been an amazing place to grow up. Although I attended Mercy High for high school, I went to Novi Public Schools K-8 and received an incredible elementary education. Crime is very low; I feel extremely safe at all hours of the day indoors and outdoors. I do, however, wish the overdevelopment of Novi would slow, as we are quickly seeing our remaining woodlands disappear into new neighborhood complexes. Traffic is growing worse, and the schools are growing overcrowded, I have been told by my three younger brothers who attend Novi Schools currently. Overall, I feel blessed to have grown up in such a wonderful, diverse community.

I have lived in Novi my whole life and love it! It is a fairly diverse city with lots of fun for all ages lots of shopping, has a great movie theater, dog park, kid attractions like airtime, bars and tons more. The schools are fantastic with real knowledgable teachers always willing to help as well as have fun learning too. Novi has fun deals around town with food and shopping and is always looking to continue this thriving city. The police do a great job watching over the city.
Great public school system. Nice neighborhoods. Some of the communities even have public pools. Diverse community, rich in many cultures. Close to lots of shopping whether it's a mall or something smaller it's all here. Parks and rec does a good job with lots of events for families and kids. Small lake accessible to all residents. Great place to live!
