Local Schools & Community Education
What can you tell me about schools?
Skokie is served by many exceptional public and private schools. Both Newsweek and U.S. News & World Report recently cited Niles North High School as one of the country's best. Most recently, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts singled out Niles Township High Schools as having the #1 arts education program in the nation.
The North Shore's generally excellent public and private schools, some of the best in the nation, are often the major reason for moving to the area. Preserving cultural ties can be facilitated by a broad range of educational institutions. Below are a small sample.
- Chinese School
- Madrasah Institute Of Islamic Education
- Chicago Futabakai Japanese School
- Ari Crown Hebrew Day School
- Goethe-Institut Chicago
In addition, to Northwestern University in Evanston, there are several colleges and universities in the area.
