A Note from the Superintendent...

All of us have hopes and dreams. We look to the future and anticipate what we can build.

We do the same thing here in the Novi Community School District. For our district, this is called our vision. We look ahead and see what we can become.

In the Novi Community School District, our vision states that we will work to build students who are passionate, empowered, and prepared for their world and their future. We want students who care deeply, who believe they have the ability to make things happen, and who have the skills needed to meet the challenges that they will face.

Every day in the Novi Community School District, we work to make sure that we can live into our vision and help our students prepare to be successful in their world.

Thank you for all that you do to help our students build their hopes and dreams, so that they can realize their vision for their future with anticipation and passion.

  • In 1963, the people voted to establish a high school district and bond for the construction of a Jr. - Sr. High School.
