George Pullman High School

George Pullman High School: Campus - The Loop: Downtown

The school itself is a large building set in an expanse of neatly cut lawn, the occasional decorative tree, or blacktop parking lot alongside curving sidewalks. The building itself is constructed from off-yellow/brown colored bricks that never seem to appear in the same shade or hue. The parking lot is expansive to accommodate the student and faculty bodies, the outdoor arenas of track and field on its far side.
A chilly wind blows from the north, driving dark clouds before it and blotting out the stars in patches overhead. The air is clear and elsewhere they glitter brightly in the dark sapphire sky.

Track and Field

Separated from the school by the parking lot, two large fields appear. The first lower on the ground and not very well tended is the practice field for the band, and freshman sports teams. The larger is the actual football field. It is surrounded by a large chain link fence, large lights tower over multiple metal bleachers. An announcer's box sits at the top of the home bleachers and a race track runs between the field-proper and the seating.

Main Building

In the main building, this is where the magic happens. The offices of all the higher ups: the principal, the disciplinary chair and the school nurse. As you walk in the floors are a cold grayish tile and the walls made out of brick, long enough to a brass logo to be set into them. Then they go to cinderblock and an obnoxious daisy yellow. To the direct left are said offices, usually busy with tardy students or new transfers or the newest trouble students. Behind them are the band room, choir room, cafeteria, and gymnasium, while to the right is a long hallway of classrooms with the library at the end.
Straight ahead are a pair of curving stairs that rotate upwards to the second floor and a pair of double doors on the outside of them where the Auditorium is located. A place for the students to meet in times of trouble, where announcements are made, where class rings are sold and where the theater department puts on its 2 musicals and 2 dramas a year. The walls in this building are mostly for the faculty, decorated as they see fit with trophies and awards in heavy duty cases. Running along either side of the upper floor are hallways with numerous classrooms.

Classrooms

One of the many classrooms in the school, it's hard to tell them apart save for the furniture. The physical sciences have rooms stocked with two rows of five long black tables each, seating two students at a time atop stools with ample space for chemistry and physics experiments. Drawers are tucked down below while gas nozzles for bunsen burners sprout from above. Sinks are set to one end aside the teacher's desk, while a long white-board takes up the farther wall.
The language classrooms are arranged like a small theater with five tiers of six chairs each, while the normal math, history, literature, etc.. classrooms run a five by six grid of desks. Both also sport the desk by the door, and a chalkboard up front.
