About North Center

North Center is a neighborhood on Chicago’s north side, just west of Lake View.

North Center also has easy street parking, unlike most of the city neighborhoods.

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.
