Nova is such a great school, in my opinion. They really want you to do your best and the teachers are always open and very supportive. I can't imagine myself in another school! Yes, it's very small and doesn't offer the 'high school experience' that is shown in movies and everything. But I believe it can still offer great memories.
I honestly can say this shool's environment is to small, the building is awkward to be in it doesn't really feel like a school.
Excellent school. Committed faculty that care about each student. Teachers clearly understand how to help their students achieve academic success. I am very impressed by this school and their culture of family and relationships.
The school is excellent in the education area the teachers are well qualified
Nova Academy is a SUPERIOR school. They live their mission statement. 'Dedicated to the vision of creating a learning environment where students are empowered to develop self-sufficiency and a sense of pride in their academic success'. I have two daughters in the 11th grade, who came from a great but very large public school. My daughters felt lost, and started to believe that they were not going to graduate. On the other hand, NOVA Acadamy takes the time to know their students, their weaknesses and strengths and build on them. My daughters are extremely happy there. I love to see the smiles on their faces of accomplishment. 'I did it, mom. They see for themselves that they can do it and their principal, teachers and all the staff show them they believe in them and took the time to show them they could' Thank you Nova Academy, your passion shows!!
Wonderful school! The staff keeps us well informed about our student's progress. He has become more enthusiastic and serious about his studies since entering this school. Can't wait to see what the future brings!
Nova Academy is superior to other schools. Dr. Eastman, the teachers and staff are on tract with their students. My daughter is in 9th grade and already started her college classes. I'm require to participate in the school meetings and event which has help me stay in touch with her teachers and on top of my daughters progress. The school commitment to excellence it's obvious.
My student did not begin attending the NOVA academy until the second semester. His previous school was very large and with such a large number of students, the teachers did not have time nor the ability to actually teach. Consequently, my student was lost, felt unsafe due to lack of control, and basically felt that staff didnt care whether he succeeded or not. However, with the NOVA academy staff (teachers, principal & admin) he feels worthy again and tells me everyday how extremly happy he is to be there and how much he feels valued. His number one comment is that he loves his teachers! There is nothing more gratifying than your child being happy and him knowing that his future is bright. College Skills and General Business classes are strong assets and truly help the students with choosing their direction and paths with education, careers and family.
The teaching faculty is helpful and easy to reach. I receive regular phone calls about the progress of my student.
This school offers an AA Degree and a High School Diploma when your child graduates from high school! Two years of free college and you get free textbooks as well. You spend your 4 years of high school but could also have 2 years of transferable college credits. It is in partnership with Santa Ana College. It's great and has improved a lot!
Horrible experience! I pulled my student out the first year. The staff including the principal had absolutely no control over the students. Parents night was an absolute mess full of chaos and with no structure. Keep your children away!
Great because it has small,personalized classes and they offer free tutoring!
