High Schools

To assist in making connections between PCs and to add depth to the setting, below are links to a few high schools in the area. A city the size of Fallcoast/Hanging Hills would have dozens of high schools but we’ve concentrated on the most important ones for now. If you do create another High School as a background, especially if a number of other PCs are also using it, then let staff know via +req/city and it shall be added if necessary.





Four Towns Memorial High School


Location: E02

Founded in 1953, the ‘Four Towns Memorial High School’ was erected to cater for the transported students of the four towns flooded by the creation of the Franklin D Roosevelt Reservoir. Therefore it is more popularly known as ‘That Dam(n) School’ and it lives up to the nickname. Hastily constructed and never really finished, the school now caters to the lower income residents of Hanging Hills with many a trailer park resident supposedly enrolled but barely attending. It’s football team – The Dam(n) Beavers – are known for their brutality of play while their science club students have not been seen for decades. Students of this school rarely make it to college.

The outer ‘buildings’ are still temporary housing blocks that threaten to come loose of their moorings during heavy storms. The three concrete buildings that were ‘finished’ – admin/library, gymnasium, and a little used science lab – are drab grey blocks with all the design flair of a nuclear bunker. They are such an eyesore that there is little attempt to remove any graffiti that is even remotely artistic. The school has a small oval with temporary seating for about a hundred and the ground has been known to become a quagmire during football season – which helps the Beavers and their tactics. The football coach and Phys Ed teacher is Sheldon Bixby

School Legend: The proximity of the school to the surrounding forests has led to a few animal visits. In 1968, three students were slain when a hungry bear wandered onto the oval and attacked the hockey team as they practiced. The animal was shot down and is now stuffed and on display outside the principal’s office. It is said that if you hear its stomach growl as you pass it then you will soon suffer some disaster.

Fallcoast High School

Location: C01

The oldest and the best high school in Fallcoast, if not Maine – at least according to the staff and former students. Originally founded by the Roman Catholic Church in 1726, it was transferred to state ownership in the 1920s though the former owners are obvious in the architecture and interior of the school. The four linked main buildings are original constructions of stone and wood with a slight Gothic feel to them though they are more welcoming than imposing. Newer buildings, such as the media center, are of modern design and construction.

Fallcoast High is not the poshest school but it has a good scholastic reputation and graduates are welcomed at University. It has well-maintained facilities though some recent budget cutbacks have forced the cessation of some courses – field anthropology and practical science among them. It competes in all sports in the state school leagues though they last won the football competition - their team are the Fallcoast Saints - in 2008.

The school has a modern all-seater, all-weather stadium that can hold five thousand spectators. It is usually full on football night and even the hockey (the Fallcoast Padres) and lacrosse (Fallcoast Eagles) teams get a good crowd. With its proximity to the ocean, the school has also done well in swimming and water polo in recent decades.

School Legend: With such an old school and so much having happened over the centuries, Fallcoast High has developed a number of legends. One of them concerns the ‘Sightless Monks’. The order of St Jerome was originally on this land but they were tortured, blinded and killed as witches by Minister Bradford during his reign of terror and the monastery was burned to the ground. It is said that the sightless monks, with their bloody, gaping wounds where their eyes once were, walk the corridors searching for their cells on the anniversary of their deaths.

St Bartholomew's High School for Exceptional Children

Location: A02

‘St Bartholomews High School for Exceptional Children’ was formerly a private boys only school but rising costs, diminishing student numbers and community discontent forced it to become co-ed in 1986. Established by a Romanian émigré, Count Sebastian Radulescu in 1873, it is located in Pigeon Hill and attempts to be a beacon of civilisation in that forsaken part of the town. When the high school was first built it was surrounded by nature and the curriculum concentrated on preparing boys for a strenuous life through physical exercise, woodcraft and excursions into the forests. Since that time Fallcoast has grown around it and lessons are more likely to be interrupted by planes from the nearby international airport than the sighting of a deer on the school grounds.

The school, against all odds, still maintains a decent grade average which it attributes to its discipline and tradition. Uniforms are compulsory and no student is allowed to leave the grounds under any circumstance during school hours. Trusted students even patrol the grounds in the role of ‘Nature Guides’ to assure that all is above board with the student body.

Their football team, average but determined, are known as the ‘Bart Blue Bloods’ but the school prides itself on its athletics and gymnastic achievements. The latter seen by many of the older teachers as the only benefit of allowing female students.

School Legend: It is said that not only are the board of directors disappointed in having to accept female student but the ghost of Count Radulescu is also horrified. Any girl found alone in the halls may encounter his fury and be driven mad by the experience. Female students tend to travel in groups as protection.

St Crispin's High School

Location: C01

‘St Crispin's High School’ is a co-educational private high school for the best of the best; and by best they mean rich. With ridiculously expensive school fees and stringent admission criteria, St Crispin's is only interested in educating the wealthiest and most socially acceptable of Fallcoast's children. Established in 1760 it is just as devoted to teaching manners and high society expectations as it is anything academic. Many of the students go on to college though not necessarily with the highest scores - but usually the highest bank balances.

Uniforms are compulsory and domestic staff are allowed on the grounds if the student takes responsibility for them - yes, you can bring a batman/butler to class if you have one. Though it is a co-ed institution, the classes themselves are gender segregated and it is only recently (since 1990) that all students can take all classes.

Lacrosse is the main sport of the school and there are well supported teams in water polo, polo and equestrian.

School Legend: There is a wishing well on the grounds where it is said that a student committed suicide in 1929 by jumping in, her family having lost everything in the Great Depression. It is said that if she calls out to you from the well then you too will be subjected to imminent poverty!

Sacred Heart School of Fallcoast

Location: B01

Founded in 1920 and initially a boarding school for girls, Sacred Heart became a day school in 1968, and has continued to be so into the present day. Resisting pressure to swap to a co-ed system, Sacred Heart School of Fallcoast sticks to the goals of its founding Catholic society, formed for the education of young ladies.

Located in the heart of the Historical District, close to the waterfront, SHSF boasts a high academic standard, though isn't particularly known for its athletic prowess. Its alumni tend to be successful either in career or marriage - more the former in these modern days - and as its class sizes are small, there is a certain close-knit feel to that particular group of women.

School Legend: Rumors say that the school is built upon a site once Sacred to the local natives, and that to keep the spirits appeased, each graduating class has to conduct some sort of ritual. Most classes do, in fact, do such a thing, one wholly made up by the members of that class, to the point where its become a tradition that, by the light of day, most laugh about. But who knows how much truth there is behind it.
