As posted on Fandom, these students are enrolled in the Advanced Nurturing High School that is also being referred to as Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing High School. This is a Japanese institution where young students are enrolled so they can grow up and be the future leaders of Japan. In short, this is a government-established school that trains the kids for the future of their nation.

He is shy and withdrawn but after meeting Suzune Horikita and Kikyo Kushidahe improved and now trying to make his way to class A, the highest-ranking group in the school. Even if they are only highschools there is already a bit of politics going on among the students and they have to face such issues on their own.
