The Arkan School for the Education of Those Who Wish to Learn (ASETWWL), is proud to offer a quality education to anyone willing student from pre-kindergarten to post graduate (assuming you wish to do your post graduate work in Myrmecology, Gynecology, or Pre-Columbian history).
No one really knows who runs the school. The School board has not ever offically met as there have never been enough people in town to make the required ammount of members. However new notices for classes and events regularly appear posted to the front doors of the building. This is rumored to have something to do with the large number of blue and gray ravens that fly to and from the school's bell tower but you usually can't see because they look sort of like the sky.
At current the teaching staff of the school is in flux and there is little evidence to suggest that has ever not been so. Frequent teachers include New York Time Best Selling Author John Green who covers topics such as World History and Engish Literature, and Nerd Rock Rock Star Hank Green who teaches the Sciences.
The Arkan School for the Education of Those Who Wish to Learn like many schools has 4 houses, (they also have a secret 5th house that only 1 person every 100 years or so gets in to.) They are named for the four point on the compass though this does not seem to have any barring on who is in which house. You recieve your house assigment with your acceptance letter.
North - those who are put in this house tend to do well with athletic and artistic endevors. They seem over all to be better with there hands at crafting, or playing things. Colors: Pale blue and white, Mascot: A blue and gray Raven
South - those who are put into this house tend to excell with wrote memoizaion being the type with a head for facts and numbers and trivia. Colors: Black and green, Mascot: An Arkonian Cat-Rat
