    Nova High School is an innovator in non-traditional high school education within the Seattle Public Schools. We are a competency, inquiry, problem and project-based school that uses performance and portfolio assessment to gauge the level and depth of student work. As a social and racial justice school, we believe personalization in education is key to building trust and academic success in preparing all students for college and the workforce after high school.

    We offer a wide variety of assistance and services to all students, including special education supports, 504 accommodations, LGBTQ student supports, and a democratic structure where students are involved in the decision-making at Nova – from our Hiring and Review Committee to our Budget Committee. Every student has a teacher advisor and is part of an advisory group with 20-25 other students so they received personalized support throughout the school year.
