PostSubject: Tower Prep Handbook   Thu May 11, 2017 1:02 am

Hey guys! This is where you can find all commonly known information about Tower Prep! Anything in this topic is information your character will know! So if you have an in universe question, look here first!


History

Tower Prep was built in 1943 and founded by Cornelius Tower. It was built as a sanctuary for young people with strange abilities. It is unknown whether or not Cornelius Tower was gifted himself.

School Grounds
The school grounds consists of three different areas. In the middle sits the Main Block. This is where all classroom buildings, administration buildings, and residential buildings sit. To the north, east, and south, there is one stretch of wooded area. To the west is West Campus. West Campus is surrounded on all sides by forest.

Main Block:
Most students stay in the main block for day to day activities.

There are three residential buildings, both co-ed. Goldcrest Hall, Kingfisher Hall and Starling Hall. Goldcrest hall is home to years 1&2. Kingfisher Hall is home to years 3&4. Starling Hall is home to years 5&6. All three halls have five floors. The first floor in each hall has a cafeteria, study rooms, and recreation rooms. The second and fourth floor are the girl’s floors, while the third and fifth are the boy’s floors. The lower two floors are generally occupied by the lower grade, while the upper two floors are generally occupied by the upper grade. Dorm rooms vary in sizes, and the amount of people in a room can range from 2-4. The average room, however, has three people. Each student is issued a bed, nightstand, desk and a wardrobe if a closet isn’t provided.

There are a total of four educational buildings. Waxwing Hall hosts science and math. Brambling Hall, the largest of the halls, hosts literature, language and the social sciences and is home to the library. Partridge Gymnasium hosts physical education and the physical skills lab. Skylark Hall hosts art as well as other electives, it is also home to most of the skill labs. Skill labs are where Tower Prep students complete individualized training based on the nature of their skills. All physical athletic skills (i.e. strength and reflex related) are assigned to the skill lab in Partridge Gym. The physical lab is one of the largest labs, since strength and reflex based skills are the most common. The other skills usually are divided into related sections in the skill labs in Skylark. Examples of labs in Skylark include the hearing lab and the visual lab (the two largest labs apart from the physical lab).

The administration building is connected to Skylark Hall. While it is technically also called Skylark Hall, most people just call it the admin building. The Administration building is where the offices of all faculty can be found, including Headmaster. The nurse’s office can also be found here. The room in which all disciplinary hearings are held is also in the administration, along with the theater where orientation is held.

The faculty residential building is called Dunnock Hall. Dunnock hall is off limits to any regular students. Dunnock hall is also the residential building for Monitors, although they have their own floor away from the faculty.

The Forest
The forest makes up about 60-70% of Tower Prep school grounds. The south, east, and west sections of forest end at cliffs about 30 meters tall that stand at the edge of a rocky beach that leads out to what seems like an ocean. The north side of the forest is surrounded by a smooth metal wall that is about 10 meters tall. The forest is patrolled from sundown to sun up. Any students found in the forest at any time of day when not permitted will face a disciplinary hearing.

West Campus
West Campus is a secondary campus reserved for students of Tower Prep which have been convinced of serious crimes. Every student who commits a crime punishable by West Campus will first face a disciplinary hearing. Students in West Campus generally do not return for a year, and occasionally more. Students are not permitted to talk about their experience in West Campus, or the procedure that oversees the transition to West Campus.

Academics

Tower Prep is equipped to accommodate students from ages 13 to 19 (and occasionally above). While a student’s year may indicate their grade, some students who failed a class their previous year may be held back until they pass. Additionally, students will remain at Tower Prep until they’ve passed all of their assigned classes.

Class sizes are approximately 15-20 students. Teachers are to be referred to the subject they are teaching. For example, the faculty member teaching biology will be referred to as Biology. Teachers design their own curriculum and may assign whatever homework or tests they see fit.

Students are encouraged to put in at least 3 hours a week in their individual skills lab. Students must meet the requirement of 140 hours per year to be able to continue to the next grade.

Along with academics and skill lab hours, students in years 2 and up must have a work study job. Students in upper grades get first priority in choosing their work study jobs. These jobs can include library restocking, lab assistants, administrative assistants, and more. Students in their 4th, 5th, and 6th year may apply to become teacher’s assistants as a part of their work study. Students in their 5th and 6th year may apply to become monitors.

Nonbinary students are allowed to pick and choose clothing articles that they feel most comfortable in. When not attending class, students can wear what they want (to an extent). Students typically use parts of their uniforms to express their own personal style. It's assumed other personal clothes like jeans, coats, jackets, etc. are either brought in from a student's home when they are placed in Tower Prep or purchased at the Tower Prep store using Tower Credits from their Work Study Program.

Students are issued PDAs and netbook laptops that are linked to Whisper. Tower Prep PDAs main function is to be a form of student identification in order to unlock a student's personal dorm room and order personal diet meals in the cafeteria. Students send and receive their homework assignments from their netbook laptops. This creates a "paperless" information system that keeps track of students' work and can be accessed by Faculty and Headmaster. Whisper communicates to students both through PDAs and netbook laptops, typically to remind students of the time till their next class or updates a student on their progress in their classes. Students are also permitted to use the messaging app in their PDA to contact other students.

Whisper 119

Whisper 119 is one of the most important cogs inside Tower Prep. A supercomputer with artificial intelligence, Whisper acts as assistant to the headmaster, and makes sure everything runs smoothly. She’s involved in student’s day to day lives, from informing them about class starting to insuring that they’re meeting their daily nutritional needs. Whisper is also available as a tutor and assists students in surfing the internet.

Student Government

Students are encouraged to run for student government as a way to give back to Tower Prep. There are general positions as well as year positions available. Student Body President is the highest position available in student government. Current student body president is 5th year Emily Wright

Sports

Tower Prep is renowned for its star co-ed indoor hockey team! There are four teams at school, all coached by different members of faculty. The teams are white, gold, blue, and red. The season spans half of the school year and students can attend matches or follow along on the tower prep radio station or tower prep channel on TV.

Monitors

Tower Prep cannot function without monitors. As student volunteers they are in charge of insuring the safety of Tower Prep students. They patrol hallways at night, and act as assistants to the will of the Headmaster. They are on your side!

Classes

4th year students have a very science based year ahead of them!

Year 4 Literature
Biology
Physics
Psychology
Art

Year 4 students are also required a work study program as well as completing the minimum skill lab hours needed to advance to the next year.
