New Trier is located within a wealthy suburb of Chicago. Many students are able to afford expensive clothing because of this. Some students even experiment with heroin and cocaine. By the time they reach their sophomore year, most of them are nearly alcoholics. This is due to having too much money and too much time, as well as parents who work constantly.

Nick Martinelli is the younger brother of Jimmy and Dom Martinelli. He helped lead Glenbrook South to a sectional championship in the boys’ basketball sectional. New Trier was defeated 55-52 by the Panthers in that game. The victory was the Panthers’ first ever in Sectional Playoffs.
