Nestled within the district of Old Braford, James Duncan High is a relatively new educational institution founded in 2012, but it's worth can't be counted in years, but it's purpose and facets. Named after the famed and fallen hero American Star, James Duncan High functions a revolutionary magnet school, it's stellar curriculum catering to the needs of two populations: nonpowered and powered students.
It's facilities carry a old-world traditional sense of architecture meshed with cutting edge technology and alluring and smart decor, such as a holographic display above the dual sets of fountains near the front of the building bearing the various deeds of heroes throughout the day within the news. It's overall structure is a initial brickwork outlined by solid titanium plating, mixed with other alloys often provided by scientific heroes as it faces reconstruction.
Walking though the halls, a student would be introduced to the necessary locations within the school grounds by a onsite AI named ESSI,or Educational Systems and Security Interface. Classrooms aside from the obviously different standards of Fine Arts are equipped with desk interfaces that stream a miniaturized version of the smartboard lesson, and are detachable for greater ease of access.
It's cafeteria is outlined with the school's colors of Red and Gold, bears fully stocked and functional kitchens, televisions that display local and school news, and a pristine view of a large open air courtyard along it's perimeter that is used to hold dances, and separates the main school from the gym and sports facilities.
Considered by many to be the 'holy grail' of the establishment, the school's gym is shaped in a large hexogonal chamber that functions during regular classes as a ordinary space for workouts and assemblies with rising bleachers, but during powered sessions is a fully functional, self contained danger room. To ensure safety, ESSI's presence monitors the facility, and it can only be triggered to this state by a staff member.
It's fine arts department is also notable, as aside from a Orchestra and Art hallway, Digital Media Room and Auditorium, it's Drama organization is it's pride and joy aside from it's stellar football team, the James Duncan All Stars. Currently pacing before class starts within this room is a rather stressed Rosella Burdelon, who awaits the results of her audition for the role of Elphaba in the school's first production of Wicked.
Despite the relative irony of her role, Rose aims to do the best she can, though she is rudely reminded that competition brings out the best of the worst in people, as resident mean girl and former friend Madison Groves strolls in. Clad in a fashionable black nearly see-through blouse and semi short gold silk skirt, partnered with knee high black heeled boots, and full lengths of steely blond hair and piercing grey eyes, Madison's model like attire grossly parallels that of Rose's.
Bearing a simple fully zipped amber leather jacket, powder washed blue jeans, and simple white sneakers, Rose can practically feel the derision dripping from the former prep school student and teen model, a cruel opinion she voices to a now fuming Rose.
"Hmm, did you come with the jacket, or did Goodwill have a bundle policy we don't know about?" Madison mocks with a red gloss lipped smile, not expecting a icy retort from Rose.
"Probably worth more than the dogshit concealer you used, or did you just smear some caviar?." She hisses, internally smirking at Madison's rebuff.
"My concealer is Cle de Peau, Rosie. One bottle was probably worth more than your gypsy camp!" Rose blinks at the insult, before simply shaking her head at the girl, muttering in french before replying.
"One, I'm French creole sweetheart, not that you have the brains to even spell the phrase. And two, I'd slap you, but contracting herpes is not on my list of things to do today, Madison." She states in a rather expert Boston Brahman accent nearly identical to Madison's own, who opens her mouth to retort, but chooses silence as they move to their respective seats, as students file in, as does the teacher, ending the verbal war.
And so, let first period begin.
((And for clarification, let your character's first period be anything actually, wherever you choose, and don't worry about keeping it timely, just post as you go through their school day however you choose! :) ))
"Never argue with stupid people; they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience."
