Mothmont is a ladder school in Radham.

AboutEdit

Mothmont was made and supported by rich and powerful individuals with the premise that younger students would graduate from there and move on to the Academy. If students can't pass the entrance exam, they will continue their studies at Mothmont until they could.[1]

DescriptionEdit

Mothmont is four stories tall with a steep, slanted shingle roof that takes up a third of a city block. The walls of the building are eggshell pale with ivy crawling across the brickwork.[2]

The building formed a square with a yard in its center. The yard has a glass roof with trees grown to support it at the corners while the glass itself is crawling with vines and small flowers.[3]

The front entrance sat at the southern wall with the front office, infirmary and other administrative rooms. The west and east sides of the square had classrooms. The northern end, furthest from the entrance has the dorms, boys at the west corner, girls at the east. The two sides of the dorms were separated by the teacher’s quarters and washrooms on the upper floors, and a spacious dining room on the lower floor.[4]

The classrooms each had windows between the class and the hallway, and the window frames were grown, large pieces of broken glass collected with what looked like tree branches growing to hold them in place, glass effectively filling the gaps between each branch.[5]

  4. The school was arranged into a square, with the yard in the middle. The front entrance sat at the southern wall with the front office, infirmary and other administrative rooms. The west and east sides of the square had classrooms. The more interesting area was the northern end, furthest from the entrance. Here, we had the dorms, boys at the west corner, girls at the east. The two sides of the dorms were separated by the teacher’s quarters and washrooms on the upper floors, and a spacious dining room on the lower floor. I supposed the idea was that it made mingling harder.

    The dorms were ordered by year, with the older students on the upper floors, and being right in the upper-middle of the range of ages, we were left to make our way down on our way to the dining room. - Excerpt from Taking Root 1.5
