A Boarding school found on the north shore of Long Island, where, if the students are persuasive enough, they can get away with anything. It's beautiful campus was the former summer home of an almost president and many say that the main girl's dormitory, Houghton Hall, reminds them of Hogwarts. The sports team have little to no skill, with the exceptions of horseback riding and soccer.

Apart from the scholastics and student life, there is another dimension to The Knox School. There is an Indian burial ground in the back yard of Houghton Hall and many have claimed to see ghosts wandering around campus. The main places to find these spirits are in the hallways of the girls dorms, in the meeting room, and in the barn.

The co-ed population of this school only consists of a little over 100 students. If you have any hidden secrets, they will find a way to be exposed on this campus.

This school is full of outdated traditions, such as subjecting the female population to wear floor length gowns and elbow length gloves during graduation, and daily morning school meetings which all students are required to attend. Others include sit down lunch and dinners, where one student from each table serves the position of "waiter." This position rotates on a schedule. A lantern parade marks the end of the pre-graduation ceremonies where every student is required to march with their class holding a paper lantern and chant their grade's song.
I went to The Knox School and learned how to keep my composure during a serious scandal.
