Our Mission: At Nova, We Do The Right Thing.
September 21, 2015
Nova Parents and Guardians:
It is hard to believe that we now full swing into another school year. It is with great excitement that I welcome you back! As I begin my 16th 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. 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/or career. We will strive to ensure that our students experience rigor and relevance in all of their courses, as this will prepare them for their post secondary lives. It is our mission to continually challenge our students to reach their potential and my staff and I are committed to providing our students with the resources and opportunities they need to reach their goals.
As part of the SMART Bond, the school will receive over 1,200 new electronic devices for both student and teacher use. There will be an increased emphasis on technology and blended learning whereby teachers integrate both direct instruction and computer enhanced resources so that students have access to the wide array of resources available to them.
Finally, I have always believed that personalization is at the foundation of any successful high school experience and will continue to embed that culture into our school community. Although we will always value structure and discipline in creating a safe school environment, students need to be viewed as people, not numbers and providing constant affirmation for them is paramount to their social success.
If there is anything I can do to assist you and your child in his her academic pursuits, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Dr. John R. LaCasse
