New Trier Township High School Reviews

After attending this high school, I can attest to its outstanding array of academic choices students can chose from, and the comfortable environment the school creates to allow New Trier students to learn easily and effectively. Personally, I have always had pleasant experiences with my teachers, who always teach in the best interests of their students and maintain high standards and expectations. This has allowed myself and many others to garner an intense yet rewarding education that has more than sufficiently prepared New Trier students for the academic challenges they may face in college. If you seek a rigorous high school education, New Trier is perhaps best suited for you.

The teachers, facilities, and resources available at New Trier are fantastic; overall New Trier provides an amazing education for its students. Almost all the teachers really care about their students and are invested in their jobs. There is a wide range of courses available, as well as a huge variety of clubs and activities. However, there is very little diversity (racially, socio-economically, etc.), and some students have a very entitled attitude. Unfortunately, the very thing that allows the education at New Trier to be so amazing (monetary wealth) is also the thing that causes its problems. Overall though, I am so grateful that I have received such a great education. The benefits of attending this school far outweigh the more negative aspects, and will always be thankful for the education I have received here.
New Trier does a great job of providing students with a vast range of extracurriculars to take part in. Students can play varsity or club sports, join cooking and knitting clubs, have their own radio show, among many other opportunities. If a student has an idea of a club they would like to join but the school does not have it, they can start their own.

The teachers are very good and also care about the student's general well being. They push their students hard but are understanding and it is not uncommon for a teacher to pull a student aside to check how they are doing. However, this may just be from my experience.

The school as a whole is very competitive and this is one of its greatest complaints. This ranges from sports teams, which are hard to make, to college searches.

Additionally, the area is very expensive to live in and is not diverse, even compared to nearby schools such as Stevenson and Evanston Township High School.
