  • This was one of the best school back in 1983 when I graduated. When you said you went to Nova the comment was "You must be smart" that meant a lot.

  • Nova was a good school when I went there in the 1970's, but it looks like it has become just another run-of-the-mill dumping ground for kids. Their test scores look awful, when I went there you had to have a B average to get in. It was sort of like a "magnet" school is now. What a shame, they had a good thing and probably thought it was too "elitist", so they turned it into just another crummy public school.
