    "New Trier is a great school with a lot of resources for talented students. The academics, athletics, and performing arts programs are all top-notch. Two of my teachers (math and English) actually had PhDs in their subjects, which is rare for a high school. One classmate went on to become a high-ranking executive at Facebook. Another classmate's father was the head of Morgan Stanley at the time we were in school. I agree with some of the reviewers who find the school competitive--the student body consists of a lot of upper middle-class students gunning for top colleges, so people are ambitious. A better word than competitive might be "rigorous"--the education I received at New Trier prepared me for college. I was fortunate enough to attend Harvard and a top-5 business school (Kellogg/Northwestern) and I have found these schools to be less competitive than New Trier in certain ways. Certainly New Trier is not for everyone: some students may benefit from smaller high school experiences, but most of the best small high schools are private schools that cost upwards of $40k per year."

    "New Trier HS is a remarkable place with strong pros and cons. It's competitive to the point of Darwinian. If your child is smart, talented and hard-working, the environment will push them to achieve their high potential in academics, arts or sports. If your child is a notch down from that, they will either be likewise motivated or possibly discouraged by their hyper-competitive peers. Socially it's also high pressure. NTHS prepares students exceedingly well for college. Students learn early that they need to work for grades and take responsibility for their studies. The level of coursework is high. A lot of students find college relatively easy after running the gauntlet at NT. New Trier is also a victim of its own success: As both a very large school and drawing from a highly educated community, NTHS graduates a very large number of kids whose grades, scores and achievement are "Ivy level." Is there a larger HS with so many over-achievers? The problem is that these students compete against each other for the small number of slots that the best colleges will give up to any one high school. The system favors kids from smaller and private schools."

    "The best thing I learned at NT by far was the ability to advocate for myself. I just graduated from an Ivy league school and because I learned this early on, I won a lot of very prestigious awards (I hadn't at NT) and develop great relationships with my professors. I will be attending Harvard for a science PhD this fall and I am much closer with my college professors than I was with my high school teachers, even though my school has 10,000 undergrads. I developed the confidence I had lacked at NT. Being a student at NT was absolutely painful. I felt that the teachers and administration just didn't care or consider student's potential when making decisions. The orchestra teacher basically said that some people are just more naturally talented than others and you can never catch up. This undermines the idea that it takes hard work to realize one's full potential and abilities. They also picked favorites in an absolutely obnoxious way. Unlike some people think going to NT will hurt you in Ivy league admissions. The acceptance rates are similar to overall rates even though students are more qualified than the average applicant."

    "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."
