Wight & Company's current designs for new construction on New Trier's Winnetka campus.

With this proposed expansion, does the school district also plan to grow space dedicated to officesRead More for staff and teachers? It often seems couched in these construction plans, are big plans for increasing space to accomodate the staff, while a much small share is actually dedicated to learning space.

Well done kids. Bullying is a huge problem for young people all across the country. Yik Yak andRead More other sites make it even easier. Kudos to you. Be an upstander if you hear someone bullying. If people started standing up for others, we could wipe this whole thing out!

Thank you Steve for sticking up for me since I was the target of the bullying. Stu and Alan I thinkRead More you're past a class and although if love to see what you are like in person (because I'm sure you are only courageous behind your PC), I have better things to do that post things all day. I will not stoop down to your level. I feel bad for you both. I hope never to meet either of you and yet in my business, you'll probably end up with me in the end. Feel free to have your comments because I will block them and never see them. Best way to deal with bullies is ignore them.

We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

I couldn't help but to do some comparison between Stevenson and DHS as a resident in Deerfield,Read More since district has put up the news on the website. Operational spending per student is $16,839 in Stevenson and $20,821 in DHS. STEM ranking, #37 for Stevenson and #145 for DHS. I have been very disappointed in science teaching in DHS. Now I believe that there is some truth in the rankings.

I don't think magnet schools should be included. All the other schools have to take all students inRead More their district, magnet schools can pick and choose best students.

Here we go again....

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
