Welcome to Night Vale Wiki

Night Vale Elementary School is the town's only public elementary school. The Night Vale Elementary School building is a living creature.[1] The school includes the Elementary School Playground.

This school was the location of a feral dog attack. Students are equipped with nerve gas canisters and automatic pistols for protection, both of which were used during the aforementioned attack.[2]

The Desert Creek housing development and the house that doesn't exist are located behind the school.

Steve Carlsberg described the local elementary schools as "okay," but expressed a preference for sending his stepdaughter Janice to a private school.[3]


Elementary school subjects include history, geology, math, English, astronomy, and foreign languages (Spanish, French, Modified Sumerian, Double Spanish, Weird Spanish, Coptic Spanish, Russian, and Unmodified Sumerian).[4] Other subjects include scrying (second grade)[1] and transmigration studies (seventh grade).[5]
