Enrollment for 1st semester 2023-24 at Nova HS has limited openings. Please call 206-252-3500 to sign up for an orientation.

Please note that Nova is an Alternative Learning Experience school. We are able to create individualized learning plans for students, however, here are some of our Nova agreements and requirements. Full list of the norms. Please consider if you and your family are able to adhere to these agreements and requirements before coming to Nova. 

  • Students signs in daily or text/call/email excused absence. 
  • Students need to be active in their communication and education. The student attends and participates in the schedule they create with their coordinator. 
  • Family communication goes through the student and the coordinator, not individual teachers. The student facilitates family meetings as needed (when requested by student, family, or coordinator). Nova does not call home to report absences each day.
  • The student participates in school decision making through coor and committees. The student attends Coor weekly, on Mondays from 10-10:40, and once a month individually.
  • Each department has developed social justice competencies that are integrated into classes students will take to acquire the credits in Language Arts, History, Science, Art, and Math to move toward graduation. The student is actively involved in classes and projects where they will engage with social justice competencies.
