Hello Everyone!

Progressive Elementary School - Fully Functional!

29NOV18 - Compatible with Game Version 1.49

Here's a cute, modern elementary school that you can follow your Sims' children to using
Zerbu's Go to School and Venue Changes mods!

Attend classes of different subjects each school day, ask questions, draw, perform science experiments, and much more!

Your adult sims will also have the opportunity to teach at the school using the career choice module with Zerbu's mods!

It is highly recommended that you read everything on Zerbu's page before installing this lot.
If you have any questions about how the mods work, or if you encounter any problems with the mods,
please go to Zerbu's page and ask/report there. I have no affiliation with Zerbu at all. None. Zilch. Nada.

I also recommend you view this video tutorial to get a sense of what happens in the school and how it's made to
function. This video is also linked by Zerbu on his mod page, so you know it's got relevant information:
misplacedmoo's 2017 tutorial

Zerbu's mods and Get to Work are essential in order for you to follow your children to school, and this lot won't work without them.
--The mods also come with the only custom content required for this lot.--

I used Esmeralda's Telescope as Observatory Alternative in the back playground on this lot. It is not required to make the lot work, but
saves space

In this elementary school there are an NPC principal, guidance counselor, teacher, a caterer,
and a janitor
, and they all work! That is because I have chosen the new version of the elementary school.
I could have chosen the old version that also comes with the mods, but that provides far less
interactions and doesn't have functional teachers.
That's all explained on Zerbu's page, and I have included quite a bit of the information from that page in a spoiler below.
Nothing is as good as the real thing, though, as information
changes over time, so please use Zerbu's page as your information guide to the mods

One other thing I found especially interesting: students from EVERY WORLD will come to this
elementary school, so you only have to have one in your entire game. This also applies to any high school for
teens, should you decide to install one.

This lot also uses items from the following EP/SP/GP's, but are not required to make the lot work, and
will be replaced by Base Game items or empty spots if you don't have them:
  • Get Famous
  • Seasons
  • Cats and Dogs
  • City Living
  • Get Together
  • Parenthood
  • Dine Out
  • Spa Day
  • Laundry Day Stuff
  • Backyard Stuff
  • Kids Room Stuff
  • Holiday Celebration Pack

This lot has the following traits if you have City Living installed:
Good Schools
Child's Play

I built it in Newcrest on a 30x20 lot.You, of course, can place it on any 30x20 lot or larger
in any world you wish. And please feel free to change whatever you like, to make it suit your personal taste!

The architecture is based off of Riverside South French School located in Ottawa, Canada.

Lot Size: 30x20
Lot Price (furnished): 140,045

This download has custom installation instructions!

In addition to the normal installation instructions, this download also has a custom instruction, as follows:

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract: Use 7zip (recommended), WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (OS X) to extract the file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s). OS X also has a built-in utility for that (just rightclick).

3. You MUST install Zerbu's mods in order, before installing this lot. It may not work otherwise, and I don't recommend deviating from these instructions.

1. Install the Go to School mod to your mods folder.
-To do this, click on the mod link on Zerbu's page (as previously linked), open the .zip file. Select all the files and select "cut." Apparently, this is important! Go to your mods folder, and "paste" the cut files there.
2. Install the Venue Changes mod to your mods folder, using the same download/cut/paste method.

Then, place the files from my lot .zip archive into your Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Tray folder.

Start your game, and have lots of fun!
