In the final game, the school will be referred to as an academy rather than as a high school. The school and town will be separated by a winding trail surrounded by trees so that when Ayano is in school, she will not be able to see the town. This is to keep the framerate up, as the town will then not have to be rendered.
Akademi is a very famous high school, being synonymous with Harvard or Yale within the in-game universe.
Every student will wear the default school uniform unless customized by the player.

The original layout of the school was based on Yasogami High School from Persona 4.
Ayano may be able to call the school to explain that she is "sick" if she misses a day of school because of torturing a student.
The reason why there are no security cameras is that the school cares about its reputation. They don't want to create an image of a school where students are in danger, need protection, or surveillance.
The police and the media stay away from the school because the headmaster bribes the police as said in Mysterious Tape #2.
