Principal's Message

  • Ms. Awofadeju

    Greetings Titans!

    It is with Great Excitement that I welcome you to the 2019 - 2020 school year. I am extremely humbled to return to Nova High School as principal this year. I remain proud of our students and staff, for their tireless efforts in working to keep Nova    High School ranked as one of the best schools in our state!

    Being a member of the Titan Family is special, and it is a pleasure to be named the principal of the first innovative high school in Broward County. It is my desire to work with the talented faculty and staff at Nova High School to ensure that we  continue to collaborate and strengthen our community by providing first-class academics to our students coupled with an intentional focus on social and emotional learning and growth for all students. It is my goal for each student to have an  exceptional experience here at Nova as they are enrolled in the premier high school of Broward County with resources to prepare them to succeed on the pathway of their choice. As they continue to grow, research, and develop, it is my ultimate goal  and purpose, that they will graduate prepared to reach their full potential, achieve all personal and professional aspirations, consequently making a positive impact in our county, our state, our nation, and our world.

    Nova High School is unique in the curriculum programming and scheduling of students to match their strengths and areas of growth, with college level and industry credentialed courses. I encourage students to have high expectations of themselves  and strive to do their very best. Nova High is also unique in the physical layout and design. This year we will undergo phase one of our major construction project to enhance our facilities, which will also enhance our teaching and learning  experiences. I ask that all parents and students remain patient as we work through all phases of development.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me by email or phone should there be any situation that I may be of assistance. I look forward to working with you this school year and beyond.

    Let's make it another great year in TITAN NATION
