About

Founded in 1919, The New Trier News was published weekly until 2020 and is now published four times during the school year by the students of New Trier Township High School, 385 Winnetka Avenue, Illinois 60093.

In its 103rd year of publication, the award winning NT News has covered stories ranging from accidental lockdowns, spotlight on students and clubs , and the continuing impact of the coronavirus on our community. Though publication of a physical weekly paper is no longer possible, the NT News continues to provide local stories online to serve students as well as the greater community of New Trier.

EDITORIAL POLICY: The opinions expressed on this site do not necessarily reflect those of the entire NT News staff or the administration of New Trier High School.

The Staff Editorial is written by the Editorial Board and reflects the ideas and beliefs of the New Trier News student staff.

Statement of Ethics: The New Trier News strives to be accurate and fair. We train our journalists to be honest and courageous in gathering, reporting and interpreting information. Our Journalists strive to:

  • Take responsibility for the accuracy of our work. Verify information before releasing it.
  • Use original sources whenever possible.
  • Remember that neither speed nor format excuses inaccuracy.
  • Provide context. Take special care not to misrepresent or oversimplify in promoting, previewing or summarizing a story.
  • Gather, update and correct information throughout the life of a news story.
  • Identify sources clearly. The public is entitled to as much information as possible to judge the reliability and motivations of sources.
  • Be vigilant and courageous about holding those with power accountable. Give voice to the voiceless.
  • Support the open and civil exchange of views.
  • Provide access to source material when it is relevant and appropriate.
  • Boldly tell the story of the diversity and magnitude within the school. Seek sources whose voices we seldom hear.
  • Avoid stereotyping. Journalists should examine the ways their values and experiences may shape their reporting.
  • Never deliberately distort facts or context, including visual information. Clearly label illustrations and re-enactments.
  • Never plagiarize. Always attribute.
