The map above shows the locations of the 7 Wizarding schools that have been revealed so far, that exist in the Harry Potter universe.
The map comes from the official Pottermore.com website, which also claims that there are: “eleven long-established and prestigious wizarding schools worldwide.” This of course means the location of the remaining
4 3 is anyone’s guess! (Koldovstoretz in Russia one of the 4 missing schools)
7 8 schools are:
- Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry (Scotland)
- Beauxbatons Academy of Magic (France)
- Castelobruxo (Central Brazil)
- Durmstrang Institute (Northern Europe)
- Ilvermorny (Eastern North America)
- Mahoutokoro School of Magic (Japan)
- Uagadou School of Magic (Uganda)
- Koldovstoretz (Russia) – Not on the map

Huh, didn’t know about most of these, awesome find!
Anyone know where you can buy this??
Haley Ibarra Crane says
One of the other missing 3 is Castelobruxo in brazil. located deep in the rainforest and supposedly resembles hogwarts
i want to know where the Australian wizarding school is?
If there isn’t one then rip the owl that has to give us the letter. But we are not entirely unlucky. I’m a kiwi and there is a dragon native to NZ that often migrates to Australia.
Kiwis go to Snakebinder Academy in NSW Australia
There isn’t one so far, but the closest one to Australia is mahutokoro.
Why is there no magic school in Australia? I need to know how to defend myself against the dark arts called spiders.
it's raining somewhere else says
Vaman Suri (vams) says
Is there any wizarding school in India or Asia
I have the same question
Agent Anonymous says
There is one in Japan
There’s a school in America it they talk about it in fantastic Beasts
Tony Webster says
At the very top of mt Everest
No major wizarding schools but there is definitely at LEAST one in india everysingle country has atleast one small wizarding school but there not the best and are not very old-they just come and go.The only major school in Asia is Mahutoroko is Japan
I live in swden so there is no school near by expect hogwarts well there is beuexcybatons but I have no interest in it because is find it to weird you know 😅
Because it hasn’t been revealed yet.
The American one is Ilvermorny
Jk.Rowling revealed a wizarding school in Australia and says there will be one in Canada
Australia and New Zealand are part of the British empire, so they would go to Hogwarts. However, Canada is the only country that can choose between Ilvermorny and Hogwarts. They can choose Ilvermorny because they live in North America, or Hogwarts because of their legal connection to the British Empire. Canadians are so Lucky!
possibly either somewhere in the Northern Territory where Indigenous culture and old practices are still thriving, or central Australia, where muggles are less likely to find them.
There’s a great episode of Melbourne based podcast “Plumbing the Death Star” where they design an Australian magic school.
Their version is in the middle of the outback, with class buildings separated by open ground, and to match the danger and whimsy of Hogwarts, there’s wild animals (magical and mundane) all over the campus.
I say China, Middle East and Australia the missing 3 schools
So do I
The Middle East doesn’t need magic, though
It’s cool enough
Am I a witch? Or am I a muffle? says
The Middle East developed the muggle realms without magic. They have muggle magic. Trade and commerce.
Stanley aghimien Edoseghe says
I want to know more wizard school
Stanley aghimien Edoseghe says
Can I become a number of wizard
I think it might be Egypt, China and india.
There’s a lot of forest and mountainous regions in Tasmania and the climate is similar to the UK. I’d hate it if the magic school was in like Melbourne, Sydney or the desert or something
Marcus Loidolt says
I imagine the Australian school being far out in the bush, specializing in Aboriginal shaman magic as well as some universal magic from the immigrants…
Elizabeth S says
The Australian school is actually called Boganmagico! She released this information in a recent tweet. Maybe, Australia will be the setting of Fantastic Beasts 3 and this is her very JK way of telling us.
I’ve heard it’s Boganmagico. I checked JK’s twitter she confirmed it, and people are ALL over it.
Aussie kid says
That sounds like bogan magic.
Or even if there is one. I hope there is. Me and my friend created one called gumsheild academy because of the gum trees here in aus
I want a admission in this school
Kirsteen Sepple says
Thats what ive been trying to find
As part of the commonwealth I’d assume AU would go to Hogwarts? Sorry y’all were never featured but neither were any Italians, Greeks, Slovenians, etc.
Dorothy Malfoy says
ya me too!
Adeseus Goodwill says
There are 11 official schools in total, and we know about 7 of those so that leaves 4 more to be discovered. I’m pretty sure there’s one in Australia for both Kiwis and Aussies…;)
Mo Lester says
Eh who really cares about Australia when you have Hogwarts lol
its snakebinder academy in the snowymountains of NSW
Probably inside Ayers Rock. This could explain how and why there is a giant rock in the middle of nowhere.
Jk only hinted at a school in Australia in a tweet of hers.
Same! I was wondering why they didn’t put that in.
What about The Salem Witchs’ Institute?
Goblet of Fire – Chapter 7 – Bagman and Crouch
That’s a women’s organisation, not a school.
From the Pottermore link:
“Smaller and less well-regulated institutions have come and gone, are difficult to keep track of, and are rarely registered with the appropriate Ministry (in which case, I cannot vouch for the standard of education they might offer).”
Stanley aghimien Edoseghe says
Help me to join you too to become wizard also thanks for reverse me
I didn’t know there was a house in Japan😱😱😱mind blown!!!!
Not a house because houses are groups kind of.
GO JAPAN #Otaku
The Salem Witches Institute isn’t one of the eleven wizarding schools
Its members are described as:
“a group of middle-aged American witches [sitting] gossipping happily beneath a star-spangled banner stretched between their tents”
So, they are clearly not students.
And also, in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, isn’t there something called Salem something? Like with that woman that died because of the Obscuro.
if you speak Spanish, what? do you know how many people speak Spanish in the whole world?
If in South america, CasteloBruxo, If in North America, Ilvermony, If In Spain, Beauxbatons
Lol can’t believe there is no magic school in China come on Rowling
Probably banned by muggles as china isnt a big fan on supersitition.
My guess is that China has a school and so would Australia, and possibly one in India or the Middle East.
Cheyenne Miller says
If there are 11 schools what are the other 3 and where are they located ??
One is definitely in indi
I heard there’s two in Africa one in Uganda and the other is in Egypt I have not heard of any in India otherwise the Patil Twins would have went there instead of Hogwarts.
The Patil Twins could be part of an immigrant family
hahaha that’s so funny although there’s something called immigration
Patil Sisters were british with indian ancestry. I dont think hogwarts would send off a letter to the natives of different country.
Adeseus Goodwill says
Admissions to Hogwarts are strictly limited to the UK.
The middle eastern school for magic, which takes students from all over Middle East and North Africa, may be found under the Citadel of Aleppo, in Syria. It calls Almalja, « The shelter » in Old Arabic.-google
If there is a school in America then how come I haven’t been accepted yet?
Anonymous Wizard says
Anonymous Witch says
What he means is, you’re an American Muggle, called a No-Maj.
Lol if there’s one in Britain how come I haven’t got 1,000 owls outside my place???!
I hope there would be main schools in Asia that we can attend to. Like in the Middle-East or East Asia, but that would be too difficult because of the languages. There should be some sort of magical language that only witches and wizards can understand, so that we would be united in a certain region as a whole and be able to understand each other.
Mr. Godric says
I think there’s a spell for multi-language understanding.
My guess is that out of the 3 that haven’t been revealed that one in in Australia, and one must be in the Middle East. The last one I haven’t even a guess about where it would be, it isn’t Africa since the school there takes students from the whole continent and is the school with the highest population. Anyone agree on my guesses about the 2 possible locations of the 3 yet to be revealed? And their guess on where the 3rd could be? China or India would be my best guesses but I’d think the Middle East school would take students from India, unless because of the population in India they have so many young witches and wizards they need their own school, same goes for China.
I’d say the last 3 schools of magic are in Australia, Nepal/India, and Egypt.
Australia would house Australia, The Pacific Islands, Indonesia and New Zealand.
Nepal/India would house Central Asia.
Egypt would house North Africa, East Asia, and The Middle East.
I’m thinking most likely the three remaining schools are located in
Australia or New Zealand
China or South East Asia
The Third one I’m assuming is in the Middle East.
I’d like to believe there are more in North or South America, considering we only have 2 located so far
It would be cool if there was one in Canada
Call me crazy, but I think there may be a school or coven of exiled witches and wizards from around the world who have created their own ways and traditions in one of the most isolated regions in the world: Somewhere like Antarctica, the Sahara or maybe even in an elaborate system of tunnels or caves. As for the three other missing schools, I’m placing my bets on Australia, United Arab Emirates and Southern India. Somewhere further away from the other, more mainstream wizarding schools. Each school will have unique traditions based on the region (Australia = Indigenous culture/dreamtime themes, etc.)
Mr. Godric says
That “coven,” is called the Order of the Phoenix.
Aussie kid says
Do you mean that the Aussie kids would get really high and experience the Dreamtime? Australia isn’t all indigenous things and if New Zealand and Oceana went to one school in Australia they would be experiencing different cultures, I don’t think Aussie wizards and witches would experience indigenous stuff but ancient wizard and witches ways potentially even the same things as Hogwarts since we’re both in the commonwealth and both connected.
Here are my thoughts on the missing wizarding schools:
I think there really has to be a Spanish speaking wizarding school. Brazil is an odd choice for a wizarding school for me since they are one of the very few countries in central and south america that don’t speak Spanish. But since the school in Brazil is confirmed, I strongly believe that there would be one more wizarding school somewhere in Latin America for the immense Spanish speaking population of the world.
Furthermore I completely agree with the broadly stated opinion that there has to be one in the Middle East for the large Arab population.
Also I believe students from countries in Northern Africa would rather go to the Middle Eastern school than to the African school since the Arab culture is closer to them. Some may even go to Beaubatons considering that french is a common language in the maghreb countries due to colonial history.
The last wizarding school in my opinion would have to be in India or China. Maybe somewhere in the Himalayas since that would probably be a good hidden location but nice and centrally in Asia. I think this is highly logical since they have such huge populations and therefore would certainly need a wizarding school.
I know this will be unpopular but logically thinking there should not be a school in Australia (or NZ). (If there were 12 schools then I would say there is one, but with just 11 all other locations seem way more important) There are already 2 English speaking schools in the world where kids from Australia and NZ could be sent if their parents don’t mind the distance. Otherwise they would go to one of the Asian schools. It would depend wether similar culture/language or closer distance is more important to you.
Certainly all schools would have developed their own transportation system for students, probably much more elaborate than the Hogwarts express. (Maybe some massive flying carpets could be involved since they are known to exist in the HP universe and have just been forbidden in Britain.) Also given the transportation the Beaubatons and Durmstrangs use, complex and unknown transportation seems highly likely to me. It don’t think it is a problem that we don’t hear about them since schools are known for keeping their secrets well hidden.
These are the locations of the three unknown wizarding schools in my opinion:
– Latin America: for the Spanish speakers
– Middle East
I agree that there should be a school where the main language is Spanish, but where would it be? In Mexico? But the mountains are pretty well populated (see; Mexico City) as much as I love this idea I don’t really know how this would work out. One of the three schools left has also already been confirmed to be in Australia. So my ideas for the next two schools would probably be in the Himalayas ( what? It makes sense!!!) and the Middle East because there’s probably enough magic students and a big enough area (it’s like the desert people!) so yeah and with the Himalayas you get students from China and India and the mountains so those would definitely be my choices for the two remaining magic schools (even though I was debating this a lot! I really want a Latin magic school to come up!)(Please!!!🙏🏻)
If you go off your logic then everyone could just go to one school because of the language spell. Doesn’t matter if there is already 2 English schools! There should be one in Australia. With your logic people in the Bahamas (searched it. They speak English) would also go to Hogwarts or the American school. I’m going to say you’re situated in America. (for convenience) what if America didn’t have a wizarding school and Australia did. By your logic you would be fine travelling all the way to Australia just to go to school. You wouldn’t be able to see your family at breaks because it would be pretty expensive. Imagine having to do that every holiday. Then imagine how expensive sending things would be. You would have to use long distance owls and they are VERY expensive. So now, you can’t see them at holidays, and you can’t send or receive packages even semi often. Do you still think that Australian wizards should just travel to America or Britain? Do you still think it’s just a matter of if your parents are fine with the distance? Also what if they’re not ok with it? Then all the wizards and witch’s in Australia are just not going to be taught?
my ideas for the 3 schools
1)i think the chinese(did i spell it right?)school would be AWESOME.i think it would be in a rainforest.
2) i thik the 2 school would be i a desert,for Egypt.
3)i think the last school would in India.
New Alexandria School of Enlightenment (Scopatore)
New Alexandria School of Enlightenment
“Aspire Simul, Simul Consequi” (Together Aspire, Together Achieve)
Students of New Alexandria
New Alexandrian faculty
The New Alexandria School of Enlightenment is a magical boarding school located in a oasis somewhere in Egypt. New Alexandria is a large campus with various buildings created in Byzantine architecture and takes in students primarily from Egypt, Libya, Sudan, Turkey, Greece, Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Israel, Lebanon and southern Italy. Although the school is located in Egypt, the curriculum is taught in Greek, making New Alexandria one of the few wizarding institutes teaching not teaching in the official language of the nation that it resides in. In addition to being a wizarding boarding school, it is also a University offering three years of post-graduation education in specialized courses.
Established in the 6th century during the rule of Justinian the Great, the school was originally named the Constantine School of the Magical Arts. Unfortunately, when Egypt was conquered by the Rashidun Caliphate, the school was destroyed and remained in ruins until the Ottomans re-established the school in the mid-16th century.
New Alexandria is famous for housing the real Ancient Library of Alexandria, which is located in an underground complex underneath the school library. The library was saved by the school’s faculty from the invading Muslims by Apparating the original library into its current location and leaving behind transfigured fakes for the invaders to burn.
The school also has a reputation of embracing certain aspects of muggle society, such as the muggle game of Football (known as soccer in some countries), which is popular among students. The school’s motto is Aspire Simul, Simul Consequi, which, translated from Latin into English, means “Together Aspire, Together Achieve”, emphasizing the school’s belief in unity and brotherhood.
1.1 Early History
2 School year
6 Daily routines at New Alexandria
9.1 Before school term
Alexis Nereus, the founder of the Constantine School of the Magical Arts
The exact date of New Alexandria’s establishment is lost to history, but scholars have pinpointed its inception to the reign of Justinian the Great. The school’s founder, Alexis Nereus, was a brilliant Byzantine wizard whom was a descendant of the famous Andros the Invincible, the only wizard in history to ever cast a corporeal Patronus the size of a giant. Nereus believed in loyalty and fairness, though equally emphasized the importance of chivalry and knowledge.
The school term officially begins on the first Monday of September, however students are required to arrive at New Alexandria the day before for orientation. Students typically reach New Alexandria via the New Alexandrian Airship, which leaves from Ahmet Station in Cairo, Egypt at noon. First through fourth year students are required to take the airship to school, while fifth year students and older are allowed to use alternative means of travel if one so wishes. Alternative means of reaching New Alexandria include Apparating or using a Portkey. Students from outside of Egypt are given a Portkey from a member of their respective ministries of magic that takes them to Ahmet Station. If a student misses the Airship for whatever reason, wizards at Ahmet Station will help them reach New Alexandria in time for orientation. The Airship brings the students to Jaharta Station, where first-year students are given a tour of the grounds by the seventh-years while the other students are given time to socialize with friends. After the tour of Jaharta is completed, all students are ushered into the school for orientation.
The students are taken to the school via carriage, however the older students typically Apparate or fly to the school gates. There, the students are taken to the Great Hall, where the headmaster says a few words before the beginning of the Welcoming Feast. After the feast, student orientation begins as the headmaster details changes happening from last year, school events and later, the sorting of the first-years into dorms. After orientation, students are led to their dorms by the seventh-years, allowing them to get comfortable with their surroundings, get acquainted with their dorm mates and bond with their house-elf before the commencement of classes the following day. Schedules are handed out at breakfast the next day by the house-elves and fairies. At the beginning of October, Quidditch try-outs and first-year flying lessons begin.
New Alexandrian Honor Guard.jpg
Although New Alexandria’s recent history has fortunately not been stained with dangerous situations within the school, the headmaster enlists the help of the legendary Justinian Honour Guards to maintain security within the school grounds. Numbering no more than a few dozen, these warriors are some of the best trained wizards and witches in the wizarding world. Not only are they lethal with a wand, they are trained in swordplay and are ambidextrous. They wear ornate robes and a mask.
Unlike most wizarding schools, New Alexandria does not enforce the use of a set uniform, but does require its students to look presentable. Fridays are “casual Fridays,” where students are allowed to dress how they please for the day.
The students of New Alexandria are taught to stand at attention when the Headmaster enters the room and salute him or her with a head bow and their right arm across their chest when they are dismissed.
Daily routines at New Alexandria
Breakfast is served from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. in the Great Hall. Students may wake up anytime they want, provided they are on time for their first class. Many older students with free periods in the morning take the time to sleep in and may request the house-elves to set aside some food for them the night prior. The first classes begin at 10:00 a.m., however many older students have free periods in the morning. Classes last one hour, with a fifteen-minute break in between.
At 12:15 p.m. lunch is served in the Great Hall until 1:30 p.m., though students are not required to eat in the Great Hall; they may take food to their dorms or outside. There are four more classes until dinner time, which begins at 6:15 p.m. and ends at 7:15 p.m., which again, is not mandatory to be spent at the Great Hall; students may grab food and take it wherever they please.
After dinnertime, students have the rest of the night to spend how they see fit. First through fourth-year students have a curfew of 10:00 p.m. whereas fifth through seventh-year students and university students have no set curfew, however they are instructed to use good judgement when out in the halls and not to go to sleep too late as not to fall asleep during class.
Students receive their mail during breakfast, delivered by fairies. If a student is not present at breakfast, they will receive their mail during lunch time. If a student did not appear for lunch, the fairies will give the student their mail at dinnertime. Should a student not appear for any of their meals for whatever reason, the fairies will place the student’s mail outside their dorm.
If a student is sick or otherwise unable to attend their classes, a house-elf will bring food directly to their bedside for all meals of the day. A student may also use their elf bell, a bell located in every dorm to signal a wizard’s need for a house-elf, to request more food or assistance. Many students ask house-elves to pay a visit to each of their teachers to find out what the student missed that day, which the house-elf relays to the sick student.
House-elves are an integral part of the day-to-day operation of New Alexandria. House-elves fill all sorts of roles in the school, from maintenance to cooking to teaching assistance. The house-elves of the kitchens act much like the house-elves of other wizarding schools such as Hogwarts or Beauxbatons; they do all the cooking in the school. In addition to cooking a swath of different meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, house-elves will cook special meals for any student that asks, provided that the house-elves contain the ingredients. If a student with a free morning class period chooses to sleep in, they can ask the kitchen house-elves to set aside some food for him or her. Kitchen house-elves will also make food for any student that asks even if it is not breakfast, lunch or dinner; midnight snacks are very popular within the school.
On the maintenance side of things, there is a detachment of house-elves dedicated to being caretakers of the school. They maintain the school by cleaning it and keeping it repaired. In addition to being the main caretakers of the school, each teacher and dorm room has their own house-elf. Some teachers hire their own house-elves but most of them are allocated one from the school’s staff. Similarly, each dorm is allocated their own house-elf to serve their needs, whether it be cleaning or other duties. There is a bell inside each dorm, activated via wand, that is magically connected to the house-elf that serves that dorm. Activating the bell summons the house-elf. Because students share the same dorm for their entire time at New Alexandria and house-elves serve the same dorm for the entirety of their employment at New Alexandria, students frequently bond with their house-elves, and it is not uncommon to find dorm-mates bond so closely with house-elves that they invite the house-elf to stay in the dorm on a more permanent basis.
Education at New Alexandria works rather differently than most of the Big Eleven; In comparison to the British system of wizarding education for example, New Alexandrian students are given much less written homework on parchment and out-of-class word for students consists mostly of practical application of learned skills and reading up on some extra material. Written homework is given only for classes such as Astronomy and other subjects where practical spells are seldom taught. Things such as O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s, or any kind of standardized written test for that matter, do not exist; instead, students are given practical examinations where they apply their knowledge. Even then, these practical exams are only for subjects such as Defense, Charms, Transfiguration, etc. Students do take a test in their 4th and 7th years that are given to the ministries to track how well students do in the school, but they do not count towards final grades and are simply to collect data about the education system.
After a student’s fourth year, most courses become optional, though a young witch or wizard must take a minimum of four courses, including the mandatory Defense classes. During their fifth and seventh years, students take more specialized classes and start planning for their future career. If a student chooses to continue their education by entering New Alexandria’s University program, they continue studying their specialized courses for three extra years in order to get a Wizard’s Degree (W.D.) in whichever subjects they specialized in. In most European wizarding schools, excluding Hogwarts, Corvinus and a few private institutions, professors require a Wizard’s Degree in the subject one wishes to teach, which makes New Alexandria’s University program attractive to many who wish to become a professor.
Before school term
Every year, the Deputy Headmaster of New Alexandria sends letters to the families of witches and wizards upon their tenth birthday via owl. The letters invite these children to become students at New Alexandria. Depending on the parents’ decision, the enrollment of children with late birthdays (September through December) can be delayed a year. In addition to inviting the children to New Alexandria, the letter details items required for attendance to the school (books, implements, cauldrons, etc.), instructions on how to get to the Ahmet Station and a copy of the school’s rules and code of conduct, which includes what clothing is permitted to be worn and how the school expects the child to behave. School supplies are obtained at their respective countries’ wizarding shopping area, usually in the capital of their nation.
Letters to Muggle families should not come as a surprise as in all countries that send their children to New Alexandria, a child’s first bout of accidental magic is handled by the magical government of that nation, and most children are previously magically educated in primary schools. If the families of Muggle-born wizards and witches need assistance in obtaining supplies, they may send a response requesting assistance to the address listed in the letter, wherein a member of the New Alexandria staff will help them.
Students are allowed to bring small pets with them, which includes owls, birds, toads, rats, cats and even smaller dogs. Larger pets such as full-size dogs and other mammals can be brought to New Alexandria afterwards if the student’s dorm-mates unanimously consent to it. In regards to a tuition fee, students don’t have to pay anything else on top of gathering supplies; together, the magical governments of Egypt, Libya, Sudan, Turkey, Greece, Albania, Serbia, Israel and Italy subsidize each and every student’s magical education fees. If for whatever reason a family cannot afford supplies, the school is more than happy to purchase them so long as they are repaid at a certain point.
Zuckhaboo an Aussie school for medicinal potions location probably on eastern of Australia
I reckon that the last three schools are in Australia, India and either at the top of Russia of Canada.
The Australian one would either be smack bang in the desert where no muggles live or right in the centre of a giant rain-forest. And they would specialise in poisons, close up combat not just their magic and aboriginal cultures (remedies, rituals etc.)
India’s school would be on top of a large mountain and their school would be/look like a Hindu temple. They would specialise in mental/emotional magic (magic that can differ moods, manipulate etc) and defence against the dark (magic and evils in general)
Canadas insitute would teach camouflage and trickery.( how to secretly do something, how to find stuff out easily, how to pretend to be someone you are not etc). Russias school would tech extreme spells, overpowered techniques/ perfecting techniques and multiple shelter/defence/self helping spells.
just ideas tho. It would be cool if J.K released what the last real schools are.
It’s bad information that the Indians, Chinese and Arabs have no schools despite the numbers.
We Indians would learn battle magic to fend off the shape-shifting demons found in our epics.
Yeah, there definitely should be an Indian magic school.
It’ll probably be somewhere in the Himalayas so Muggles can’t find it – but it also probably has anti-Muggle protection like Hogwarts, so it might not matter where it is. And the Muggles’ internet, radio connection, etc. won’t work around it… Southern or Central India is the best place for these, also because India is highly superstitious country and, as @aritra said, there are SO MANY demons in our epics!
Haha! You’re giving me Moon at Nine vibes!
1- probably a second one in the continent of Africa or one in Australia;
2- one in China or India;
3- one in the Middle East;
Europe has too many schools! TOO MANY schools!

Way tooooooo many
Hey bro I think only seven wizardry schools are there the Koldovstoretz is not there.

I really need a magic teacher…. I love magic. ..can anyone please help mr😧😥
Jake Hamilton says
Another north American school on the west coast, Nepal India, under water port key door to the school in austrial either to another plane of Australia or in the outback, maybe even in Sydney well hidden by magic, and lastly one in Dubai under the burj Khalifa building twice as tall
these all seem to be boarding schools like Hogwarts but have you guys considered smaller, ‘frontier’ size establishments of learning?
Any boarding school would require a huge outlay of money to send a child too and most parents are not comfortable with sending their children away in the first place. You also have to consider the differences in language and custom and religion.
My suggestion is that there are 11 prestigious schools and perhaps hundreds of smaller institutions as well as a network of private tutors and, of course, homeschooling.
travel between places with portkeys, floo and apparition has been used canonically as acceptable means of everyday transport – Molly Weasley uses the floo network to go shopping and everyone seems to be fire hopping or apparating in order to get to work. Yes, the latter appears to be restricted by a license but the same can be said for driving a car and how many of us were dropped off at school by our mummies? Side-along could just be their version.
Perhaps some schools were run by the government. Hogwarts has been a school of renown for hundreds of years, here in Australia we have buildings pushing 200years. Its not comparable. a lot of country schools, here and around the world, started as single room buildings with maybe ten pupils or less. take into account the smaller magical population and the relative ease of travel and you could assume that several of these smaller buildings were located around the country. perhaps a larger one then being formed in the outback where there is plenty of unexplored land and secret, sacred places.
Tilak osforger says
why there isn”t a school nearby to India i want the answer
Even I want to go to a school in India!
I want to know are in Indonesian have magic school??
Indonesians probably go to the Japanese school. but there are probably a bunch of smaller Indonesian schools in Indonesia, just not well known like Hogwarts or Beauxbatons.
why are there so few schools in North and South America? Although it makes sense that there are only 2 because they were discovered so recently(in comparison to Europe) you’d think that there would be at least 5 because of the population(my guess is that 1 out of 100 people there are magic, whereas Europe would be only 1 out of 200).

I want to believe there is a school for German speaking people. I have German heritage but am American and live in California but the only school in North America is half way across the country!!!
I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter series of books I never want to watch the movie because they are misleading.
I have no lie where the other schools are but I think maybe Switzerland or the Himalayas. If you agree write a comment thingy bellow here. 😉
Ching ching says
Way tooooooo many
Thats not a major wizarding school-there are only 11 major wizarding schools(they are the best and oldest ones)The smaller ones aren’t as old or as good and they come and go . There’s a small wizarding school in everysingle country but theres no info on them because they don’t matter
If you look closely the American school is actually in Canada
Yeah, I’m in SoCal and I don’t wanna go to the other side of the state to go to school lol!
There is an academy in asia, however, It is in japan. The academy’s name is mohutokoro school of magic.
IM WAITING FOR MY LETTER FROM ONE OF THESE SCHOOLS!!!!!!!!
Whattt?????? I didn’t know that there were so many magical schools! I only thought that there were Hogwarts, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang! I am a huge Harry Potter fan and LITERALLY base my LIFE off of it!
Please tell us about a wizarding school
Actually, Castelobruxo is in North Brazil because it’s located in the state “Amazonas” which is located in the region North.
