Mother Malone's Boarding School is a school and residence for kids five to ten years in age which offers "fresh air and recreation for kids of all sizes." What the brochures don't mention is that the meals are skimpy and Mother Malone who runs the school is a crabby and mean old biddy who hates kids. Her husband, 'Pop' Malone, loves pulp fiction and works as the teacher. He's not fond of his wife. When the kids run away from Mother Malome's abuse, he goes with them, protecting them from an old bootlegger and winning a reward. Pop uses the money to re-invest in the school, and give the kids better meals with very little further inteference from his wife.
Other local schools are the Adams Street Grammar School and Bleak Hill Boarding School.
