This cute and fun game makes you a school teacher. The goal is help Mrs. Brighton to make fully educated geniuses out of the kindergartners who attend the school by micromanaging a series of interrelated tasks and needs through six school years.
A school year is composed of 10 months or levels. Each level represents a school month and lasts approximately 5 minutes. Use the time you have to help the students become the greatest geniuses ever.
Each student group possesses its very own personality and behavior, depending on its grade. Most of the time, they act on their own. The groups are the following: Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade and 5th grade.
You have a school staff. They are your most trusted allies and you try to use their skills wisely. The staff is the following: Janitor, hall monitor, Chaperone, Teachers, Cafeteria Cooks, Mrs. Brighton. You have to keep the school tidy and harmonious. Remember to call the janitor to fix a maintenance problem.
Keep an eye on the students’ needs. A need bubble will appear to warn you of any need that should be addressed. For example, a burger need bubble means that the student is hungry, or a boy or girl pictogram means that the student needs to go to the bathroom.
Each level features two types of objectives: The regular objective, which you need to make sure the students reach to proceed to the next game level; The advanced objective, which if you reach will grant you extra money at the end of a level.
