Hello Scholars,

We're back to bring you an sweaty, exercise filled April update!

Swimming Pool

It's blazing hot this summer (well, it's summer here in the Philippines where we live) so why not build a Swimming Pool that your sophomore students can use for PE? Last one in the pool is a rotten egg!

Basketball Court

It's NBA playoff season right now, so it's the perfect time to add a Basketball Court to your school and watch your students shoot some hoops!


This is the major feature we have been working on for quite sometime. Student needs now have to be satisfied, otherwise they will “drop out” or basically leave your school. Open the Reports menu and click on the satisfaction button to see how satisfied your students are.

This adds a layer of challenge to the game that wasn't there before, as you can now lose student if you don't maintain your school well!

NOTE: This is a new mechanic and will need balancing after we observe your feedback. Please let us know how you feel about it in the discussion boards!

In-Game Bug Reports

To make bug reports easier, we have integrated them into the game. Clicking on the bug report button will now let you submit a bug report in-game with all the necessary logs and save files attached, so no more clicking around to find your save file!

Teacher Hiring/Department Panel Update

We made some much-needed changes to the Teacher Hiring UI to make it easier to see which teachers are good at what subject. We've also added some arrows to the teacher avatars to more easily move them from the department to the teacher pool and back!

Known Issues:

Students will sometimes use staff doors if there are no other nearby entrances/exits. Make sure they have regular doors accessible to them.
