New Trier Township High School District No. 203 Reviews
I have cherished all of the club opportunities at New Trier. Since sophomore year, I have joined at least four service clubs and as a senior I became apart of the social service board and became a leader of a club I had been going to for three years. There are so many other ways to get involved at my school as well such as being in ELS Club (helping students with special needs) or high five choir. I also played tennis for four years. Our athetlix teams are very competitive but a great way to make friends and have fun. In all New Trier has great extracurriculars that offers something for everyone. The academics are also outstanding! Our teachers are great and make class exciting and interesting everyday. But if I could change one thing, it would be to have a different schedule every other day instead of taking the same classes everyday of the week.
I am currently a senior at New Trier and I had an amazing high school experience. There are certain levels for courses that determine the rigor, each level class providing opportunities to students with nearly all academic prowess. It is also a relatively simple process to switch from level to level, provided there is good evidence a student would succeed more in the different level class. There are also an incredible amount of opportunities to join clubs or sports. Flyers around the school, handbooks, and many other resources show the vast variety of extracurricular activities the school offers. Even more, a student can create their own club with the help of a teacher sponsor. The school takes its extracurriculars very seriously and stays well involved with their activity. With the wide variety of opportunities, students are more than able to find a niche where they belong.
New Trier High School is a great school for academics and sports. It is typical for a senior, like me, to hear that friends and classmates are getting into ivy league schools and schools that are considered in the top 100 in the United States, either through academics or sports scholarships. The downside to this is that the school is very competitive, making students who are less academically or athletically strong feel bad about themselves and their abilities. Here comes the often used sentence, "I'm good at (enter subject/sport) but I'm not New Trier level good."
