WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: MEXICO

Disguised as a Mayan ruin in the jungles of Chiapas, the Mexican School for Enriched Magical Studies is a sturdy moss-covered structure blanketed by lush greenery. The students are no strangers to muggle tourists ambling about, and will often pose as fellow tourists or locals and interact with them, making them one of the most outgoing, lively, and tolerant communities in the wizarding world. For festivals, students like to don vibrant headdresses, and the school becomes a kaleidoscope of colour as girls twirl around like tops, their skirts lifting up into the air, filling empty space with colour and painting the school with embellished splendour. The campus often reverberates with music from the school’s ghost mariachi band who plays cheerfully day and night; although it tends to get annoying at times, the constant activity makes the school feel like home.

HP universe AU where we follow a group of American students going to their wizarding school in upstate New York called Hudson River School of Wizardry and in this wizard culture they all wear American Revolutionary-era dress and they get fitted for wands in Sleepy Hollow and their school houses are named after local Native American tribes and every once in a while they pick up an international wizard newspaper and read about Harry Potter and Voldemort across the pond and they’re like “yo shit is GOING DOWN in England rn”
