Akademi High School is a private[1] highschool that Yandere-chan, Senpai, rivals, and the other students attend. Alongside Yandere-chan's house, it is the setting for the game Yandere Simulator.

In the final game, the school will be referred to as an academy rather than as a high school.[2] The school and town will be separated by a winding trail surrounded by trees so that when you're in school, you are not able to see the town. Then nothing will be rendered and the frame rate will be low.[3]


Every student will wear the default uniform to this school, unless customized.

The school size is 250x250.[4]

  • The original layout of the school was based on the Yasogami High School from Persona 4.[10]
  • There will eventually be a map of the school that the player can use to not get lost, but this is a low priority.[11]
  • You may be able to call the school to explain that you are 'sick' if you miss a day of school because of torturing.[12]
  • The reason why there are no security cameras is that the school cares about its reputation too much to install them. They don't want to create an image of a school where students are in danger, need protection, or surveillance.[13]
  • The police and the media will stay away from the school because The Headmaster bribes the police, as said in Mysterious Tape #2.
    File:Old test environment version 2.jpg
  • There used to be an old test environment that YandereDev later removed in the May 24th, 2015 Update. He said that later in the game there would be better environments.
  • Despite the game using a lot of Japanese themes, signs and boards in game will be in English instead of Kanji. (Kanji are Chinese characters used in the Japanese language)[14]
  • There's apparently a rival school, but there will be no rivals from there.  It will be in one flashback, since a very important character from that school plays a role in the game's backstory.[15]
  • The original plan for renovating Akademi High was to simply use this model. When that plan didn't work, modular pieces were created instead.[16]
  • Akademi High was founded around 1985.[17]
  • The name might come from the Japanese Katakana spelling for academy, Akademī (アカデミー)
  • YandereDev thinks that it should be possible for the player to press a button and see a map of the school. However, he won’t prepare something like this until the school is 100% final.[18]


  • The second school grounds has some sort of barrier that prevents anyone who is following the protagonist from crossing over to the track.
