The Amazing World of Gumball Wiki

Elmore Junior High is a major location in The Amazing World of Gumball, first shown in the episode, "The Responsible." It is the city of Elmore's local public junior high school, in which Gumball, Anais, and Darwin attend.

Surprising for a public Junior High school, it has its own cheerleading squad, marching band, indoor swimming pool, and track and field facility.

  • The doors on the front entrance of Elmore Junior High match the colors of the main Watterson children; Anais, Gumball, and Darwin.
  • The school's mascot is a duck, whose costume is portrayed by Archie the Duck, who looks exactly like the costume.
  • Strangely, although Darwin is only 10 years old, he is still a 7th (and later 8th) grader like Gumball who is 12 years old. This may have something to do with how he is registered as a "pet fish" instead of a student.
    • Along with Darwin, Jamie, Tina, and Carrie are respectively 13, 14, and 327 years old and are in a 7th (and later 8th) grade class.
  • Anais attends this school because of her high intelligence, despite being only four years old. She is not in Miss Simian's class with her brothers, instead, she goes to an 8th-grade class, as revealed in "The Others." She has been shown as a student in "The Dress," "The Quest," "The Painting," "The Mystery," "The Curse," "The Fight," "The Sidekick," "The Voice," "The Joy," "The Void," "The Return," "The Others," "The Pest," "The Routine," "The Parasite," "The Points," "The Stories," "The Guy," "The Test," "The Vase," "The Nuisance," and "The Buddy."
  • The live-action shot of the school's exterior is from Abraham Lincoln High School in San Francisco. Interestingly enough, a lot of the more Victorian houses, like the one in front of the bus stop in "The Gi" look like Vallejo houses, similar to those of San Francisco.
  • The live-action photo location used for the school basketball court is from Lincoln Elementary.
  • On Miss Simian's door, there is a three-eyed smiley face. This is a reference to the 2001 science fiction film, Evolution.
  • Despite it being Elmore's local school, the Wattersons have to drive through a busy expressway to get there, as seen in "The Gi," "The Bumpkin," and "The Fury."
  • In season 1, the walls near the school building were colored yellow, but in some season 2 episodes, they were changed to red, like the real-life version of the school. Later in season 2, the walls stayed red permanently.
    • In some episodes, the doors are all red (also like the real-life version) instead of blue, orange, and pink.
  • In several scenes from various episodes (like the scene from "The Skull" where Gumball, Darwin, and Clayton are running away from Razor) the school halls are seen to be unrealistically long.
  • An art teacher and a young duck teacher were created to be faculty at Elmore Junior High for the episode, "The Others," but were scrapped.
