I have two kids attending Nova. One daughter is in kindergarten and the other daughter is in 3rd grade. We moved to this school district over the summer. My daughter has been bullied by other children in her class. She was grabbed from behind and her face/mouth covered by another student during lunch and no one intervened. No adults, no students. I had to contact the school for something to be done. The school said they did not know it occured and no one saw it. She has told me how other students laugh at her during class in front of the teacher and make fun of her, and the teacher does nothing. This school cares more about dress code than they do about academics or students behavior. We have never been around children that behave this way, and its an obvious reflection of the parents and area. We will hopefully be moving this summer or sooner. If you can go to school somewhere else do it! I would not recommend this school to anyone. We will be moving to Medina or Milan (I am told they are the best schools in the area). There are also other Jackson-Madison County Elementary schools that are rated better by greatschools.org but since we have not attended I cannot comment.

Nova is a great school. My son came to Nova in 1992 and now our grandson is here. Nova is a safe place to be and a place where each student can receive an excellent education. They will be cared for and loved by all the staff and teachers there. I highly recommend Nova to anyone looking for a great school. As a parent and grandparent. Mr. Neely is a wonderful Principal and he cares about all the students. You will find him to be fair and easy to work with.

Nova is a wonderful school. The teachers are the best. Everyone at Nova wants your child to experience the best education, that they can give them. We are a family.

Nova is a good choice for public school. PTO is very good. The teachers and principal seemed to be very concerned with their responsibilities. We just started 1st grade there and don't have much experience yet, but so far, so good.

We believe that: 1. Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs. 2. A safe and comfortable physical environment promotes student learning. 3. Students need to not only demonstrate their understanding of essential knowledge and skills, but also need to be actively involved in solving problems and producing quality work. 4. Teachers, administrators, parents, and the community share the responsibility for advancing the school’s mission by frequent communication among all staff and stakeholders. 5. Students learning needs should be the primary focus of all decisions impacting the school. 6. Students learn in different ways and should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches to support their learning. 7. A student’s self-esteem is enhanced by positive relationships and mutual respect among and between students and staff. 8. Students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process and when they have appropriate opportunities for success. 9. That students will grow socially and emotionally as a result of being in a culturally diverse environment. 10. Students learn to make appropriate decisions given a supportive and challenging learning environment. 11. We believe students learn in different ways and should therefore receive quality Instruction, with a variety of teaching strategies and assessments that are research-based. 12. We believe students can be challenged and motivated to reach their fullest potential. 13. We believe that instruction can be data-driven and differentiated for each student.
