Principal's Office - Winnetka
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.
