North River Commission supports the 26 CPS schools in our area by working with students, parents, teachers and administrators in improving the quality of education. NRC also partners with Illinois State University’s Teacher Pipeline to connect education majors to Chicago Public Schools and our neighborhoods, which encourages them to choose Albany Park schools for their first teaching positions.
