Happily Ever High School is the #1 preparatory school for fairy tale youth. When students are first enrolled in classes as children, they are sorted into one of four academic tracks: Prince/Princess, Knight, Sorcerer, Royal Advisor. Students that excel in their academic work and learn how to give a proper "happily ever after statement" may go on to run kingdoms or assist royalty. As graduation approaches, members of the senior class begin to realize that maybe the key to happiness isn't found in the story that has been written for them.
