For as long as history has been recorded, the school has taught young Wizards to harness the abilities of all seven magic schools. The magic of Fire, Ice, Storm, Life, Myth, Balance, and Death are taught here by the school's esteemed faculty of full-fledged Wizards.
The current Headmaster of Ravenwood is Merle Ambrose. Headmaster Ambrose is not only wise, but he is also a protector of Wizard City. While he usually spends his time teaching important magic lessons, Ambrose has recently become preoccupied with something new -- his search to find a hero who can help save Wizard City.
At the centre of the school is Bartleby, the World Tree. Bartleby is the giver of life and guardian of the worlds along the Spiral. Inside his mighty branches lies the doorway for Wizards to visit the other worlds that make up the Spiral.
