    "This school is MUCH larger than the number listed at the top of this page. I know the class of 2017 is over 1100 kids alone but since the Freshman attend a separate campus they are not shown here. Add 1100 to the above number. It is impossible to be involved in any athletics or theater unless you are superb at that particular activity. They make up for it by having a millions clubs that don't mean much. Frankly, the school is just too big. I am a third generation family at NT."

    "New Trier is clearly the best public high school in illinois for bright, motivated students. The academics are top notch as are the athletics and performing arts curriculum. My son plays with the Symphony Orchestra and was able to tour Australia and play in the Sydney Opera House with the ensemble last Spring. I attended Loyola Academy myself as did my father and grandfather and it is clear to me that Loyola cannot compete with NT on the range and quality of available options."

    "Academically I was really well- prepared. But I felt lost in a sea of 4000 kids, and I wouldn't do it again. Despite joining a ton of teams and clubs, I felt really lost. I went to Notre Dame after graduating and felt like it was an academic cake- walk compared to New Trier. I had some stand- out experiences: some great Art, Art History, and Photography teachers. A fantastic math teacher that took time to teach us about life. An awesome experience on the crew team. But overall, I felt like the crazy competition and huge size made it easy to feel really lost. I'm extremely extroverted, but New Trier turned me into a wall flower for four years. Overall, I don't think the environment is has any sense of community and even very high achievers that are hugely social can feel lost."

    "As a former student, I can say that NT prepared me for college better than any of the the high schools my college classmates went to. NTHS is an exceptional school, that allows kids to push themselves as far as they can go, but still has the flexibility to fit everyone's needs. Though large, NT's size is actually an advantage: the unique level system is critical to its success, and the advisery program is unparalleled in its ability to foster community and develop close friendships. I loved my time at New Trier, and found that I was capable of more things than I thought possible. The networking abilities once I left were astounding, and it seems that everywhere in the world, one can meet a NT alum. The number of clubs available (I was in well over ten my senior year alone) create a small school feel, and the class sizes were the perfect size to have absolutely excellent discussions. NT is not for the faint of heart, or for those unwilling to challenge themselves. All too easily, one can trip and fall in the mad rush of eager students pursuing their interests, academic or otherwise, but hopefully they will find friends to pick them back up."

    "Top notch school and best academics in the area. Going Ivy-League after NT isn't uncommon, and the varying wealth of knowledge you pick up as a student is a plus. Most of the people who have problems with NT are socially awkward or lazy and like to blame all their problems on the school, when in reality, their social experience would be the same no matter what high school they go to. The whole "pressure cooker" that is NT is completely ridiculous, as it's the same at any North Shore school, just since NT exemplifies the North Shore, people tend to complain about it more. No matter what good school you go to, if you're in all honors classes, you're not going to have a social life, not just at NT. Yes, NT is a large school, but class sizes are the same as at the smaller surrounding schools."
