East Side
Neighborhood Schools

     There are a large number of neighborhood schools, both public and private, in the East Side neighborhood.  As
demographic changes in the area occur, certain patterns have emerged.  Fewer children are attending Catholic schools
resulting in the closing of St. George Elementary School and St. Francis De Sales Elementary School.  However, both
buildings are still being used as schools.  The St. George building is used by Our Lady of Guadalupe, a growing 
Mexican Catholic parish school from the neighboring South Chicago community with increasing enrollment. The St. Francis building is used by the nearby Gallistel School as an upper grade center. 
     The area public schools are experiencing an increase in enrollment as large numbers of Mexican families with school
age children move into the community.  Within recent years area elementary schools  have built new additions to serve the growing enrollments.
