Would SQL or NoSQL be appropriate for my situation?

say I'm building an application in Node.JS for a school that has students, teachers, classes. You can see there's alot of relationships in there.

Would you recommend using NoSQL? I know that you can use mongoose to enforce relationship databases in NoSQL databases though. Or would you go for a SQL database? Why does the majority recommend using NoSQL when using Node?
