Akademi High School is a prestigious high school[1] that Ayano Aishi and Senpai currently attend. This school is where the ten rivals and other students attend as well. Along with the Aishi House and Buraza Town, it is the main setting for 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 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.[3]

Akademi is a very famous high school, as it is synonymous with Harvard or Yale within the world of Yandere Simulator.[4]

Every student will wear the default school uniform unless customized by the player.

The school size is 145×192 as of December 1st, 2018.[5]

The symbol in the center of the pink flower is saikou (最高), which means "best". With the arrows pointing in many directions, the logo means "the best in all ways" or "the best at everything".[13] Currently, this logo can only be seen on the Akademi High's front gate and social media page.


Main Article: Manga
Multiple manga series can be found scattered around Akademi High School. Ayano can read them at night to increase her Seduction Level, Numbness Level, Enlightenment Level, and more. The mangas presently available on school grounds are Cherry Touch, Life Note, and Yokai Story.


Main Article: Tapes
Ten Mysterious Tapes can be found randomly across the campus. Ayano can collect them and listen to them in the Computer Lab to learn more about the lore of the school.

A tape.


  • When walking or running around, the environment flashes due to certain camera angles.


  • The original layout of the school was based on Yasogami High School from Persona 4.[14]
  • 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.[15]
  • 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.[16]
  • The police and the media stay away from the school because the headmaster bribes the police as said in Mysterious Tape #2.
Old test environment version 2

Old test environment.

  • There used to be an old test environment that YandereDev later removed in the May 24th, 2015 Build. He said that later in the game there would be better environments.[18]
  • 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.)[19]
  • There's a rival school, but there will be no rivals from there. It will appear in a flashback because a very important character from that school plays a role in the game's backstory.[20]

A different design of Akademi High School.

  • The original plan for renovating Akademi High was to simply use this model. That plan didn't work, so modular pieces were created instead.[21]
  • Akademi High was founded around 1985.[22]
  • The name of the school is similar to the Japanese katakana spelling for "academy": Akademī (アカデミー).
  • YandereDev thinks there should be an option 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. (Which in the recent builds is the "Space" key.[23]
  • The second kanji on the school logo, "高", is sometimes used as an abbreviation of the Chinese word for high school, "高等学校". This may or may not be intentional.
  • YandereDev has stated that his vision of Ayano's school's uniform closely resembled Kotonoha's uniform from School Days. This is now possible thanks to the breakthrough on May 22nd, 2016.[24]
  • After it was suggested to him, YandereDev is considering the idea of the school layout being shaped like the Saikou logo from above.[25]
  • Possibly, there were originally plans to have a baseball field at the school, but the plans were scrapped.[26]
