New Trier Township High School Reviews

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 has a lot of positive history behind it. It is very well-known for the academic rigor of the curriculae, which I feel is an accurate observation. Much of the coursework is clearly well-thought out and planned beforehand by the staff. Teachers are very good at making themselves understood to all students, regardless of what their learning types may be. The school administration also understands that teaching out of a book verbatim does not always provide the best education. They allow teachers the freedom and flexibility to tailor courses to what each group of students needs and wants. For example, during the election, our history course changed scope to reflect the current events as we could see them unfolding during the class. This is an example of the very positive changes that staff and students are allowed to make and benefit from at New Trier High School, and it is a system that works wonderfully to prepare students.
