“I moved here specifically for my daughter to go to Novi schools and because when researching the crime in the city it was what I was looking for and where I wanted to raise her,” one of the reviews states. “Now that she’s all grown up and done in the school system I can honestly say it was the best decision I ever made. My home has kept its value and made excellent equity through my 17 years I’ve been here. It continues to be a great safe community with a lot of places to go and eat and shop. There are always up days on the city news, they have a fantastic library and it’s just overall kept up. The parents keep each other well informed at the schools. Sports are plenty. … If you’re considering buying a new home check out Novi, remember to keep the schools in mind and visit them. You won’t believe them!”
Many of the students said that Novi schools prepared them for college.
“I have completed 10 years of public education in the Novi Community School District, and I don’t think it could get much better,” one student writes. “The district is incredibly competitive, and the teachers are well prepared for that. There is a large variety of activities and clubs for all to pursue. The facilities and technologies are up to date. The great resources provided by the district earn my recommendation.”
The news that the district is at the top of the list is only one of many reasons Singh is proud to offer new construction homes at Bolingbrooke and Tollgate Woods in Novi, which last year was named one of the top 10 places to live in metro Detroit overall.
