Dear Prospective Parents and Students,

Welcome and it is my pleasure to invite you to explore our NOVA website. I have worked in international education for twenty years and can say without hesitation that NOVA Elementary and Middle School is a great place for children. We are student- centered; from the smaller class size to the variety of after school activities and healthy food we serve in the cafeteria, we put children first. We are experts in child development and understand how students progress within each age group as well as in their own unique ways. We are holistic in our approach, addressing the needs of our students academically, socially, emotionally and physically. We understand that children have different learning styles and our teachers are versatile and adept at using a varied palette of teaching strategies. We teach our students to respect and celebrate diversity and they, in turn, make friends with classmates from around the world.

Our American-based curriculum is modified to meet international school standards and we are accredited by CEESA (Central and Eastern European Schools Association) and NWAC (Northwest Accreditation Commission). All instruction is in English and our certified teachers are either native speakers or highly fluent in English. Our teachers are our biggest asset and they are given opportunities to continually hone their craft through professional development.

Our students look forward to coming to school because their natural curiosity and eagerness to learn are nurtured. We empower our students to be life-long learners, giving them the confidence to ask questions, take risks, and think critically. I invite you to join our NOVA community where every child is valued and every family is invited to become an integral part of their son or daughter’s education. As principal, I also look forward to coming to school because of the students, teachers and families who make NOVA such a dynamic, stimulating and friendly place to be.

If you have any questions, or would like a tour of our school, please let me know. I look forward to meeting you.

Warm regards,

Cindy Gold, Elementary and Middle School Principal
