Jefferson Park a community of about 44,000 residents is located on the northwest side of Chicago, between Bryn Mawr and Montrose, and Cicero and Milwaukee Avenue. Despite being known as Chicago’s transportation hub, “The Gateway to Chicago,” Jefferson Park is a quiet neighborhood. Properties range from A-frames, bungalows, Victorian gray-stones and multi-family units.
Jefferson Park is known for the Taste of Polonia and the Jeff Fest. Jefferson Park is also supportive of the arts and houses the Copernicus Civic and Cultural Center, a cultural center which includes The Gateway Theatre, and the Gift Theatre Company.
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.
