Being a New Trier student has its ups and downs, the advantages are the new builidngs in the campus that were constructed. Having a new environment makes students more willing to learn and engage in their education. New Trier is in a very wealthy area and that is shown in the students, its environment is very safe and the teachers are phenomenal. They are always willing to help a student in the times of need. Our high school offers lots of extracurriculars, as well as sports. Most students have a personality but some do not. On the other hand, the cafeteria food is VERY overpriced and not delicious. New Trier is highly competitive at sports and that is shown at our home games, and I am honored to be a Trevian. (GO GREEN! GO BLUE! WE DONT MESS AROUND HEY!)

I am involved in the IGSS program, which is a newer program. Basically it is a school within a school. It encompasses English, Environmental Science, and History. The method of teaching is very organic. You are taught to think for yourself - there is no wrong answer! The teachers encourage creativity, thinking outside the box, and collaborative learning.
New Trier High School is located in the North Shore of Chicago. This location is known for its very wealthy parents, and people. Having a good reputation is essential, and that is shown in this school. Just last summer, NT went through a major renovation at its Winnetka campus. The building has lots of light, and better, open classes. With a better, clean, good looking campus, it makes students more willing to learn and be engaged in their classes. There are lots of extracurriculars for everyone of all interests. I feel very safe at school, and there are at least 4 security guards on every 5 floors of the school. The teachers are very open to their time with students and love to teach. There is not much diversity at New Trier, but the students can have multiple personalities, some being kind, and others being snobby. The food is overpriced and not good. With all this being said, I am still very proud to be a Trevian, and couldn't imagine myself graduating at a different high school.
