General Information

The Private School is a Civic Reward Building that provides Education to your Young Sims.

Education buildings increase the Education Quotient over a coverage radius. Some buildings have variable coverage radii which can be changed using a School Bus Funding slider, however the majority have a fixed radius that cannot be expanded or contracted without modding the game.

There are three variants of the Private School which are notable for being completely free to place and requires no maintenance. They also include a built-in Park Effect, the strength of which varies between the three versions, to attempt to draw high-wealth citizens to it by increasing local desirability; provide an inherently higher EQ boost; and cover the entire Grade spectrum. They are also the only service in the game that discriminates according to Wealth by providing no effect at all to low-wealth citizens.
