Edgewater, located on Chicago’s north side, seven miles north of the Loop, is bordered by and Devon Avenues and Ravenswood Avenue and Lake Michigan. Beautiful beaches brought the elite to Edgewater in the late 1800s as summer homes were established in the prestigious community. Historic districts intermingle with skyline apartments, condominiums, and homes, creating a very diverse mix.
Now, a bustling international community, Edgewater is comprised of more than 62,000 residents. Eclectic and award-winning restaurants and shops contribute to a close-knit neighborhood feel. Third Saturdays in Edgewater, street fair styled community days, and the weekly Edgewater Farmer’s Market, give residents and visitors many opportunities to mingle and enjoy the neighborhood warmth.
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.
