With 35 interscholastic sports, more than 150 student clubs, a strong intramural program, and performing arts opportunities throughout the school year, New Trier truly offers something for everyone. New Trier serves about 4,000 students from Chicago's North Shore suburban communities of Glencoe, Kenilworth, Northfield, Wilmette, Winnetka and portions of Glenview and Northbrook - communities that reflect a tradition of support for academic and cultural achievement. Freshmen are housed on the Northfield Campus. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are housed on the Winnetka Campus.
Governed by its own Board of Education, the district serves six sender public school districts (kindergarten through eighth grade), each with its own governing board. Local private and parochial schools also graduate students who advance to New Trier High School.
The mission of New Trier High School is to inspire students "to commit minds to inquiry, hearts to compassion, and lives to the service of humanity" by working in partnership with the community to provide innovative programs for all students, nurture their unique abilities, and encourage them to pursue excellence in their endeavors.
