A Certified "A" School
Our Mission: At Nova, We Do The Right Thing.
As we embark on the 2012-2013 school year, I see our school in the midst of a variety of change. First, we are now on a straight seven period day, whereby all classes will meet every day for fifty minutes. Teachers will now teach six out of seven periods a day which means they will have one less period to plan. Regardless, please know that our school vision and mission remains the same and that is to educate all students in a safe and orderly environment. We will continue to provide for a personalized environment by teaming students at the 9th and 10th grade level. Teachers in these core areas will continue to have common planning and are afforded the ability to plan collaboratively and better communicate with parents. Finally, we are also offering single gender classes in Algebra I Honors, American History, English III, Geography Honors, and Reading. There is a significant amount of research that suggests separating students by gender increases student achievement. I encourage you to stay involved in your child’s education by attending our monthly SAC/SAF meetings where important school information is discussed. I also ask that you visit our school website regularly to keep abreast of upcoming events and meetings. As always, I am here to assist you and your child in any way possible as he or she navigates through the most important years of their lives.
