new trier high school: New Trier High School's Ranking by US News & World Report - 04/25/13 04:24 PM
New Trier High School's Ranking by US News & World Report The local news outlets this week published an annual "Best High School" report by U.S. News and World Report .  It was reported that New Trier High School (Winnetka, IL) was ranked at #12 in Illinois.  That was up one notch since its ranking last year at #13 of the best public high schools.   There wasn't much comment about this but my first thought was, why is New Trier all the way down at #12?  To many people, that statement might sound absurd - after all, there are 667 … (2 comments)

Goose Stopover at New Trier High School

It's tough being a goose nowadays - wide open green spaces are hard to come by.  It's a testament to our recently warm weather (now gone) that these geese ares till here in late January. North Shore residents are used to driving around and seeing giant flocks congregate on what few areas are left:  golf courses, schools, or office complex green areas.  I snapped this one morning while driving past the rear side of New Trier High School.   They won't stay long - soccer, lacrosse or some other sport would certainly start … (6 comments)

New Trier High School, Winnetka, IL Annual Report 2012 As a real estate agent who works in the all the villages served by New Trier High School, I know what a draw it is.  Whether buyers are moving from downtown Chicago or out-of-state, many already know what high school district they want to live in.  They don't often care if they buy a home in Glencoe, Kenilworth, Winnetka, Wilmette, Northfield, or even east Glenview, as long as the public schools feed into New Trier. Such is the power of the school's reputation that home prices and rents are slightly higher within … (7 comments)

new trier high school: New Trier High School Will Expand Use of iPads - 04/23/12 03:50 PM
New Trier High School Will Expand Use of iPads New Trier High School is expanding its iPad pilot program by increasing their use from the current 165 to 735 next year.  600 of the iPads will be used directly by students, sixty will be kept on carts that will move from classroom to classroom, and the remaining 75 will be loaned to teachers. Knowing that New Trier has almost 4000 students, this may seem like a drop in the bucket but the school feels it is important to test-use them while continually assessing their usefulness and effectiveness. Technology updates happen so … (20 comments)

new trier high school: New Trier Renovations and Winnetka Streetscape - What Now? - 02/03/10 11:25 AM
New Trier Renovations and Winnetka Streetscape - What Now?
As most of you know by now, the ballot referendum to raise $174,000,000 to renovate the physical  structure of New Trier High School in Winnetka was defeated yesterday.  The measure went down by a 63% to 37% margin (with 97% of the vote counted.) 
The proposal was a minefield of debate with the Nays showing strong and vocal opposition and two websites dedicated to defeating it.  Most who voted against it said the cost and the plans were exorbitant and that they would support a scaled down version for renovation.
After touring … (2 comments)

New Trier High School in Winnetka - To Renovate or Not?   
A volatile subject sure to raise hackles in the coming 2 months is not whether New Trier needs a renovation, because most residents believe it does.  The issue is just how much renovation it needs and at what cost.
One proposal early on called for the complete rebuild of the school with an accompanying price tag of $400 million which was denounced as too expensive and too intrusive to the community.  Other ideas called for enlarging the Northfield campus, rebuilding just the west side, or just continuing to make … (2 comments)

new trier high school: New Trier High School Hopes for Renovations - 10/22/09 05:40 PM

New Trier High School in Winnetka is hoping that the school board will vote to set a referendum for next February to allow voters to decide on going ahead with plans to refurbish portions of the campus.  The estimated cost of renovations is $185 million which translates into approximately $300 additional in residents' tax bills.  Earlier this year the district nixed more expensive plans, including a $400 million rebuild that voters said was too expensive.
If approved the project would commence in the summer of 2010 and be completed in two years.  The school has not had a proper renovation … (3 comments)
