A Certified "A" School
Our Mission: At Nova, We Do The Right Thing.
July 28, 2014
Nova Parents and Guardians:
It is hard to believe that we are gearing up for another school year. It is with great excitement that I welcome you back! As I begin my 15th year at Nova High, I cannot help but feel a true sense of pride over what great success we continue to have in so many areas. I hope our students have had a relaxing and enjoyable summer break and are ready to join me in continuing our vision of making Nova High School the best school in Broward County!
With the growing complexity of the world and the increasing demands of the 21st-century workforce, we believe that all students should graduate from high school fully prepared for college and career. This school year will be a year of transition with regard to curriculum and upcoming assessments. Although students will continue to take end-of-course exams in Algebra 1 and 2, Biology, Geometry and U.S. History; a new set of Florida Standards will be incorporated and assessed at the end of the school year. We are committed to preparing your children for their post-secondary lives.
In closing, do know that you are our customer. If there is anything my staff or I can do to assist you or your child in his/her educational endeavors, do not hesitate to call.
