Family Circle calls Novi one of America’s best towns to raise kids

Family Circle magazine named Novi as one of the top 10 best towns and cities across the country for families. The top 10 communities featured in this annual review combine affordable housing; friendly, safe neighborhoods; green spaces; low crime rate; strong schools; and giving spirits. And Novi’s diverse population helps make it a top draw for many residents.


“For Reeta and Abhinav Raina, the archway at Novi High School speaks volumes. With the word ‘Welcome’ inscribed in 25 languages, it’s a symbol of the diversity that distinguishes this fast-growing Detroit suburb. Asians account for 15% of the population, and at Novi High, sons Jay, 18, and Raj, 15, can take International Baccalaureate classes as well as attend German, Irish, Polish, Chinese and Indian cultural shows. ‘For us, diversity is just as important as good schools, low crime and green space,’ says Reeta, 45.”
