The Washington Post uses the AP and IB classes as a proxy for "challenging". In fact, theRead More author of the list doesn't have any other way of assessing the curriculum or the preparation that New Trier (or any other school) provides its students. These rankings which take a complex mission - the education of our nation's children - and distill it down to one or two indicators does an incredible disservice to our schools. It is the equivalent of rating your success as a parent based upon your children's ACT scores. Whether our kids score well or not, we all know there is a lot more to "success" than that one test.

"Virtual walls"? Geezus... GPS spoofing is but one way around the geofence. The otherRead More is simply walking up to someone and saying "HEY *(&*(^^#&*(Y($*() !!!!!" Or use a different app created with a bogus email account... *sigh*. Sticks and stones people... sticks and stones... Walk it off and move on...

Hopefully Clueless about the Environment Crawford will be replaced by someone more adept and versedRead More in env. issues to add wild life and env. Curriculum to the South schoolers with a wildlife sanctuary RIGHT NEXT to them, and pathetically underused. Hiring crawford's replacemnt with outdoor sensitivity will ensure more teachers with like knowledge will be added. These children deserve a good start from kindergarten on up to know what the animal/plant kingdoms are all about. They don't need to know more about dogs & cats, do they??!!?

Is it the app that is “vicious.” Or is it the people using it ? And this coming from aRead More principal ? He must be in complete denial.

If your kid was smart enough and not so short on common sense they wouldn't worship their phone andRead More have this app on there to begin with.

If schools imposed more effective restrictions on the use of cellphones during school hours,Read More problems like this would be greatly curtailed. It's astonishing to me that kids are allowed to walk the halls of school and even text during classes!

To my recollection, there never was any part of the proposal that included underground parking. I'mRead More not so sure what the new "guy" is that's mentioned here. I do know this much: that place is a dump.

Here you go, Winnetka. Step up, or shut up: Dear New Trier Families and Staff, Over the next twoRead More weeks, New Trier will display architectural design boards and models representing three design teams’ initial concepts for the future of the Winnetka Campus. The teams are competing for the chance to work with the New Trier community to develop the design for a potential Winnetka Campus project. The concepts on display are not the final designs, but rather creative concepts; the team chosen to move forward will collaborate with parents, students, staff, and New Trier Township residents in the coming months as we work together on a solution to replace three adjacent buildings that are among the oldest, most inefficient, and most inaccessible on New Trier’s Winnetka Campus. All community members, parents, staff, and students are invited to view the designs on the following dates during school hours: Feb. 19-21: Northfield Campus, 7 Happ Road, Room C234 Feb. 24-28: Winnetka Campus, 385 Winnetka Ave., 2nd floor rotunda area Comment cards will be available on site, and we encourage you to share your thoughts. The designs, a video of the design team presentations, and an online input form are also on our website at http://bit.ly/1fX9Vwm. The initial design concepts focus on replacing the 1912 Cafeteria, 1931 Tech Arts Building, and 1950 Music Building with a facility that is more energy efficient, accessible, and that meets the academic needs of New Trier students. The District asked the teams to include additional flexible academic and elective classrooms, additional library space, and a multipurpose cafeteria/meeting/study space. The teams were instructed to present a potential project that was smaller and that would cost significantly less than the one proposed by the District in 2010. As a result, the designs did not include a new gym, field house, fitness facilities, or underground parking – all parts of the 2010 proposal that were cut to decrease the size and cost of any potential project. The design teams are: CannonDesign, HBRA Architects, and The Third Teacher; Moore Ruble Yudell and Legat Architects; and Wight & Company. Sincerely, Nicole Ziegler Dizon Director of Communications and Alumni Relations New Trier Township High School District 203
