Curriculum and Instruction

With roots in progressive education and a history of curricular innovation, New Trier offers a comprehensive curriculum with a wide range of core academic and elective courses.  Curriculum is developed, revised, and implemented within each academic department.  Our framework for teaching, The Characteristics of Professional Practice , identifies the qualities and behaviors of effective teachers that we value as an institution and that reflect the culture of our school and community.  This document not only embodies our beliefs about best practices in teaching, but it also serves as the foundation for professional growth and development.
