New Trier Township High School Reviews

One of the top public high schools in the nation. Provides excellent education as well and extracurricular activities. The school is located in an affluent neighborhood in Winnetka. There were about 4,000 students enrolled in the school. Many of the students are welcoming and friendly. Because it is a large school, you tend to develop close group of friends during school. It is difficult to get into the top tier of the class as many students have the resources to receive private tutoring to assist in their studies. Teachers are knowledgeable and competent. There are many opportunities to be involved in extracurricular activities ranging from sports, organizational clubs, school paper, drama/theater, music, volunteer work (ie Misericordia, Habitat for Humanity). Overall, I believe the education you receive at New Trier does correlate with it's status of top ranking public high school in Illinois.
Review New Trier Township High School
Originally I thought that NT was too big. Over 4,000 students! But it seems that with all of the clubs, organizations, sports and extra-curriculars every student finds a place to fit in.

Most teachers are excellent and supportive. There are many places to go for help, particularly academic.

Up to date with technology and amount and type of resources available to students are remarkable.
To the person who commented with an issue about "liberal propaganda" - I've sent both of my kids here and we have witnessed the lack of diversity and overall feeling of ignorance. Understanding minorities at this school is critical for the students to be able to function in real life at a public college or job. This school provided us with educational excellence and we are incredibly fortunate to have been able to send our kids here, but it is necessary for at least some "liberal propaganda" to make its way into the school -- with that being said, don't you even dare rate this school 1 star, as it's the best in the state and among the top 5 nationally. If you're that into keeping your kids sheltered and ignorant, send your kids to Loyola please.
