Overall amazing school! The Northfield campus is built beautifully structured. Each building serves a different purpose and even if you don't know the school well you'll still be able to find your place very easily unlike the Winnetka campus. The academics are great, teachers are really nice although there are some misunderstandings once in a while. The Admin are usually reliable but not when it comes to social issues or racial bullying.

New Trier is awesome, if you are white, rich, and privileged. The academics are phenomenal and absolutely prepare you for college. The amount of money they put into the building is phenomenal, the facilities are state of the art. The teachers are exceptionally qualified and really care about their students. There is a large variety of classes and clubs, anything you are interested in you can find at New Trier. However, the social scene is toxic and the school cares more about their reputation than the health and wellbeing of their students.
This school is incredible when it comes to the academic courses offered and the extracurriculars but the competitive environment caused me to not give five stars. If I didn’t go to new trier, I never would be the person I am today. I learned how to be self confident through debate, but I lost much of my self worth due to the toxic competition. The rigid academic hierarchy makes it so that no one cares about learning anymore rather just received an A and getting a higher percent in the class than your friends. If you feel comfortable in high stress environments, this is a great school
