East Shadowgard Junior High School
2140 Edwards Avenue
Constructed in 1977, East Shadowgard Junior High is a large, squat, ugly concrete building that is nevertheless outfitted with the most advanced computers and education resources available, staffed with a large number of excellent teachers and stocked with the most up-to-date textbooks, making it one of the top middle schools in the entire state. Unfortunately, this benefits barely twenty percent of Shadowgard's preteen population. The borders of East Shadowgard's school district are drawn as closely as possible, the slightest technicalities exploited to keep students out, and the atmosphere inside the school is exclusive and elitist at best. In many ways, East Shadowgard High School is more like an exclusive private school than a public school; the only difference is that it's funded by the state, which asks no questions at all, thanks to the donations of increasingly wealthy parents who do everything in their power to keep it that way.
