Description: 

Both the novel's Quentin's are associated (briefly) with the town's school system. The male Quentin remembers how impatient he used to get in elementary school for the school day to end. The female Quentin is driven to the high school by her uncle Jason, though she doesn't wait for the end of the school day to leave. Jason refers to "the school house" (188), so we are putting elementary and high school together into one location. The text gives no clue about where it is located in town, however.
