The School for Good and Evil is a school for children whose souls are evil or good. If you are in the School for Good, you are an Ever (short for Ever After) . If you are in the School for Evil, you are a Never (short for Nevermore). In the Woods Beyond, the School Master choses whether you heart is good or evil, in order to assign you in the correct school. In other areas inside the Woods, people are given tickets to go to their school, such as tickets for the Flowerground. Sophie and Agatha went to the School for Good and Evil, and the year after that, temporarily changed the school into the School for Girls and Boys. Then, the year after that, the Evil School Master came to life again, and turned the Schools into the Schools for Old and New Evil, until Sophie reverted them back to the School for Good and Evil by destroying Rafal's (The young school Master's ) ring, killing him, therefore undoing his spell.
