New Trier Township High School Reviews

New Trier is among the highest performing high schools of the country, however that comes with its downsides. While the teachers and students are incredibly gifted and driven, there is absolutely a significant amount of stress that follows. The pressure at New Trier to succeed at the same level of one's classmates is ever present. Although there is danger in the comparison among students, the staff is wonderfully equipped to tend to each students individual needs. It also tends to be an inclusive environment for students of all abilities, which is unique for most high schools!

The school itself is great--the building looks incredible, the food's actually pretty good, and most of the teachers are either average or great. Having said that, the obscene amount of money New Trier has is mostly used towards new construction or sports, so a lot of the technology is lacking despite generally excellent teachers. Most of the computers are slow or broken, along with scales and other lab materials.
Worst of all, though, the administration ensures that New Trier remains unsafe for minority groups. Students with repeated allegations and proof of sexual assault, homophobia, transphobia, and racism continue to attend New Trier with little to no repercussions, despite the school promising to keep its student population safe. The administration even actively tried to cover up several incidents (racism and rampant heroin-use), which were only brought to light after students publicized them.
My experience was amazing. The staff and faculty are amazing to all students and provides assistance to all students. The amount of money in New Trier is insane. Many students spend the three-day weekend in Bora Bora, while others go to Fiji. The academics are amazing and well-prepared me for college. I loved my time at New Trier and always feel welcomed going back! There are many clubs and organizations that anyone can be a part of. The safety is always amazing. Go green team!
