    i think in that case just don't initiate worldbuilding during night vale trips. i think as long as you've got a general idea of the sort of night vale, x-files, area 51, spn type american-spooky mythos, you shouldn't have any trouble rolling with what other folks describe.

    Yes. I do like that.
    Do we do British style headmaster/professor etc? (Unless US boarding schools do that too. I've never been...)
    And clearly we have houses because how else do we judge and discriminate against others.

    We can stick with previously suggested eagle, coyote, bear, and...uh (i can't remember)

    Or literally anything

    Hmmmm. HMMMMM.

    Maybe Southwestern Wizarding School/Sage Canyon is on a nexus point, where ideas and bits of reality leak through. A little part of the world that overlaps a little too much with other, adjacent worlds. Wizarding schools are supposed to be super secure, right? That's why they put the Sorcerer's Stone in Hogwarts and all. So it's a little area of safety between the known Wizarding world, and the great unknown of several other not-quite-our-worlds. So it's not quite Nightvale, but sometimes the little muggle town nearby goes a little strange in the desert heat, and sometimes there are creatures lurking in the vast expanse that you can't find anywhere else in the world, that can't be harmed or tamed with normal magic.

    I always got a sense of dogma from the wizarding world- there's new advances and all but a lot of it is old and tried and true but not always effective. So there's a bunch of these little places where the world goes screwy and doesn't follow the rules, so you have to make new ones. Cobbled-together magic with one foot in the Established Systems and the other in necessity, at a school built half in the known Wizarding World and half in the infinite chaos of the megaverse.

    Ok, this is Eastern Washington, not really Southwest (also, not shopped) but it still seems up this thread's alley, so:

    I'm very much not a HP person, but I might still lurk this thread because ahhhhhh Southwest.

    So, regular high school or boarding school?
    Actually, did anyone here besides me go to an agricultural or vocational high school, cause those could be good models.

    i went to an american private school -- not a boarding school, a day school, but -- we did have a headmaster rather than a principal, but we called our teachers 'teacher' rather than 'professor' and we had a dress code rather than a uniform.

    Huh. I had one friend who went to private school, but she transferred out after a year and never talked about it.

    I do like the idea of a boarding school, I just have no idea how they function. But tell us about agricultural/vocational high schools too! *props chin on hand*
