Once upon a High School, in a land beyond imagination, comes the tale of Ever After High. A High School for the next generation of fairytales. Where spellbinding students are destined (or not) to follow in the footsteps of their fairytale parents.
But one student, Raven Queen, does not want to follow in her mother's villainous path. What if she wants to choose her own Happily Ever After, and how will it affect other students' destinies, like the Royal leader Apple White?
The End, is just the beginning.
Ever After High is a high school that prepares the teenage children of fairy tale figures for the day they'll take their parents' place and keep their stories alive. This year, however, a young woman destined for the role of villain, Raven Queen, considers another option: one in which she can have a Happily Ever After of her own.
This does not sit well with the Headmaster, Milton Grimm, because the stories have to be repeated as they are to continue to exist. On top of that, many of the students, led by Raven's own counterpart Apple White, do not appreciate the idea of Raven and her like-minded peers deviating from their roles, as it might interfere with their own destinies. Along this line, the student body finds itself split between the Royals, mostly the ones who were promised a Happily Ever After from the day they were born, and the Rebels, the ones who are not favored by destiny or who sympathize with those who aren't. The Royals seek the safety of continuing their stories, while the Rebels wish the freedom afforded by rewriting the script.
Yet while the conflict brews, daily life goes on. This forces the students to not only figure out their beliefs and wishes and how to fight for them, but to also navigate the way this affects their familial relationships, friendships, and romances, as well as their school results. Life at Ever After High may be enchanting, but simple it is not.
