St. Modern Kitakou High School is the first school to be introduced in the Kitayume universe. In the classic strips of Advance! Kitakou Broadcasting Club, the school is known as Koriyama Kitakou High School.
However, the version appearing in Advance! Kitakou Broadcasting Club Pure and Barjona is the better-known of the two incarnations, though the setting has changed from Koriyama to Yokohama along with the school being completely different in appearance and name.
Classic Kitakou (Koriyama Kitakou High)Edit
An industrial high school located in the rural Koriyama. Only a bookstore, a Benimaru convenience store, and a neighborhood seem to exist in its direct vicinity.
Kitakou Pure (St. Modern Kitakou High)Edit
This school was formed from the merger of an industrial high school and a nearby Catholic mission school. Even with the industrial school's facilities incorporated and having become co-ed, traces of the old mission school still remain, including a chapel.
As both schools were originally only for male students, the sudden change left the new school with a 13:1 ratio of boys to girls. There are still a lot of devoutly religious teachers as well. Even so, the students are free to express themselves without much restriction.
