The school is not available to build until Kyle is married and his child is born. After the child is born, talking to your wife will prompt a dialogue in which she expresses concern for the child's education and asks you to talk to the mayor about building a school. Talk to Byron while he's in Mayor's House 1F. The school will cost 10,000 G and 1,000 Wood, and will take only one day to build.

When Kyle approaches the school, the first generation ends.


Both teachers only give two lessons per day, so be sure to attend school every day!
