Shasta Learning Center will always be Nova High to me

  1. Me, too, Matt. (You seem too young to have attended it when it was Nova.) Personally, I didn't care for my time at Nova. Too big a jump from Sequoia … I felt lost. I know other people loved it there. Same place, different experiences. So it goes. 🙂

    Same for me, Matt, and what a beautiful building it is! My parents and grandparents also graduated from there when it was Shasta High prior to being "Nova". If those halls could only talk…!!

    I did indeed attend there when it was Nova, and while the building is beautiful, it was a mostly awful experience. I had to adjust to high school twice, as if once wasn't hard enough!

    Both my kids went there when it was Nova. They both loved it. My daughter thought it was one of the best years of all her school experiences. As you say, different strokes for different folks!!

    I didn't like it when it was Nova either, BUT it is a great picture!
