Principal's Office - Northfield

Welcome 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. The Principal is responsible to keep that mission at the forefront of our work as a school. Students, staff, and parents are encouraged to contact the Principal’s Office or stop in for any questions, concerns, or comments.

On this page you will find copies of our regular communications mailed home to parents, articles about New Trier and education written by the Principal, an “Ask the Principal” form, and contact information for the Principal and office staff.

Here’s your chance to ask the principal a question about New Trier or education.
