A Message from the Superintendent:

Benjamin Mainka, Superintendent

NCSD Wildcat Families,

The Novi Community School District is rich in diversity, academic opportunities, extra-curricular opportunities, and is a wonderful place for students to come, learn, grow, and achieve together.  I am so grateful to be a part of this amazing community.  Our facilities are state of the art in design enabling us to offer a wide range of opportunities in all areas of interest.

The District boasts of eleven preschool classrooms, five K-4 buildings, one middle school, one high school, a career prep high school, and an adult transition center.  The student academic growth in grades three through eight is 52 and the average SAT score is 1009.2, with SAT College and Career Readiness Benchmarks for 37.3%.  We have a 97% graduation rate.

Novi Community School District is one of the very few districts in the area to offer an alternative education program and we are proud to be able to offer this to all students who need this educational opportunity.  The Novi Career Prep High School provides these opportunities to, not only our Novi students, but extends its' offerings to students in the surrounding communities and beyond.  

The rich diversity of our District provides our students with the opportunity to learn beside and interact with many students from different cultures.  There are seventy-one different languages and dialects spoken throughout our community.
