Welcome to NOVA


Located in Olympia, Washington, NOVA Middle School is South Sound's intellectual home for highly capable learners. With our core values of connection, commitment, intention, and joy, we provide our students a uniquely transformative experience that combines academic rigor with social and emotional learning.

We are excited to meet you and tell you more about NOVA! No matter how far along you are in the process of thinking about middle school, we invite you to discover what is so special about NOVA.
