Name: Saint Louis Private High School
Motto: Scientia ac Labore 'By means of knowledge and hard work'
Students: 3200
Location: Paris 2, 5e Arrondissement

Introduction

A fairly prestigious and modern school in the middle of Paris-2, Saint Louis Private High School (along with Saint Louis Private Primary) was built by a private organisation with the intent to see the 'silver lining' of Second Impact and build a school with new and modern academic traditions.

The students of Saint Louis are all well-equipped, with each of them having access to a school laptop with built-in wireless capacity, a well-stocked library (both physical and digital), and a personal identity card. The lessons tend to take advantage of this by encouraging student fora or incorporating the internet into study.

Saint Louis is, nevertheless, a demanding school; the workload is high, and the teachers are quite strict; many students are placed under great pressure in their last years. Nevertheless, students who can withstand the heat often maintain high grades and graduate well; especially since the name of Saint Louis goes a long way on a resume.

Uniform

The Saint Louis uniform is as follows:

For boys, a long white button-up shirt, with long navy blue trousers and a red tie, along with a red blazer and either a red beret or a navy blue hat. White socks and black shoes are favoured. Shirts should remain tucked in at all times.

For girls, much the same; a long white button-up shirt, with a long navy blue skirt (usually around mid-calf to ankle length) and a red tie, along with a red blazer and either a red beret or a navy blue hat. White socks and black shoes are favoured; girls are permitted to wear stockings in wintertime.

Jewelry and makeup is to be kept to a minimum.
