Addicting as hell

The price is too low for how much I’ve played this. I love building schools, I love the silly mental images I create out of my students lives, I love that I can hire a duck, a bear, a monkey, and a ghost to be teachers! Plus the New Game Plus and the alternate maps, good lord this has value!

Big tip though - expand slow and be smart about your hiring. Teachers can have great stats but cost way too much given that their stats only come into play the first of every semester.

I love love love this game! I’ve been playing it on and off for the past 8 years. I have some suggestions, increase the map sizes and make it to where the students are there longer than 3 years at a time and possibly make it to where we can choose the classes they take based on what year they are.

Structures are Difficult

Unlocking buildings is way too complicated. I am currently on year 14 on the first map and I have not yet unlocked the soccer field, pool, gym, art room computer rooms etc.
