Dalton Preparatory

The high school in which the game takes place, Dalton Preparatory is a private high school with about 150 students, situated at 2081 Ashland Ave in Evanston, Illinois: a direct suburb of Chicago. While many students are children of wealthy families, military families are given large tuition waivers, and numerous scholarships are available based on merit or need. The school day is broken into six blocks and two periods for lunch and PE. Every grade is broken into homerooms of 12-16 students, who share an advisor and general schedule. The building has a two-story floor plan.
