James K. Polk Middle School
First seen in

James K. Polk Middle School is the school attended by Ned, Cookie, and Moze, and is the main setting of Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide.

It is inhabited by a highly intelligent weasel. The janitor, Gordy, also sleeps there sometimes.

In Real Life

  • In real life, the school's exterior is actually the exterior La Mesa Junior High School in Santa Clarita, California.
  • In real life, James K. Polk was the 11th-president of the United States.
  • There's an actual James K. Polk Middle School in New Orleans, Louisiana.



  • The school has supposedly lifted one foot of the ground due to the "atomic flush"
  • It's possibly a joint school between an elementary school and a middle school, because Ned was seen in a flashback as a Kindergartener at the school.
