My characters live in an isolated village, they have a sort of one room school but this isn't your normal village. I have a reference to the school and the readers don't yet have much description of what this village is like. I don't want them to think of a normal school. It will be confusing. Here's the sentence: “Someone took it from my bag at school. I didn’t know it was missing until school ended.” I could say, “Someone took it from my bag in/at class. I didn’t know it was missing until class/school ended.” Or, “Someone took it from my bag. I didn’t know it was missing until class/school ended.” I need to expand the image of this one room school. This is a small village hidden in a forest. It's sci-fi, in the future on another planet, but it isn't fantasy. The village is isolated and while they survive by hunting and gathering, the people are modern, knowledgeable, they have books. One of the parents has taken on the task of being the school teacher. So I'm looking for one or two sentences that might describe or hint at such a school without being blatant exposition. And should I refer to it as a class or as school? Thanks in advance.
