New Trier Township High School District No. 203 Reviews

Overall, my experience has been positive. I built writing skills, and learned to cope with the learning and test taking process. I have developed an interest in reading and foreign language, as well as forged connections with my teachers. This school is fully equipped to set students up for success later in life.

The teachers have been the strength of the school. They have been enthusiastic, are willing to invest in students as individuals, and accommodate their special needs when necessary.

In terms of accommodations, the school is effective at general implementation, but ineffective with its Learning Centre. Many students there are resentful of the punitive, and often unbalanced way it operates.

As a whole, I have built many value skills and mane many connections that have prepared me for college life. I would recommend this school to anyone who can handle lots of coursework, and can benefit from many academic and recreational resources.

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.
