Andersonville is a diverse, highly sought after neighborhood on Chicago’s north side, made up of individuals who enjoy its quick access to downtown Chicago and the lakefront. Although bordered east-west by Winthrop Avenue and Ravenswood Avenue, and north-south by Bryn Mawr Avenue and Foster Avenue, the essence of Andersonville can be found at Clark Street and Berwyn Avenue. The main shopping area is on North Clark Street. Unique locally owned businesses, gift shops, dining options and boutiques energize this thriving, traditionally Swedish community. Known for their yearly Midsommarfest, a very popular summer solstice street festival, Andersonville has made its mark on Chicago.
Public & Private Institutions Of Learning
Education is provided by public, private and home schools. State governments set overall educational standards, often mandate standardized tests for K–12 public school systems and supervise, usually through a board of regents, state colleges, and universities. Funding comes from the state, local, and federal government. Private schools are generally free to determine their own curriculum and staffing policies, with voluntary accreditation available through independent regional accreditation authorities, although some state regulation can apply.
