Summary for Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e (Elite Classroom)

Funded by the government to educate new generations, the Metropolitan High School for Advanced Education brings together Japan’s brightest young people on one campus. At this seemingly perfect facility, the reticent Kiyotaka Ayanokouji arrives as a new member of Class 1-D, where he befriends one of his classmates, the antisocial Suzune Horikita. First, his classmates enjoy the academy’s leisurely lifestyle and use all of its state-of-the-art facilities.

But the facade of the Metropolitan High School for Advanced Education soon gives way to its true essence: only the classes with the best grades can take full advantage of what the school has to offer, with Class D being the furthest away. Class D, which is at the bottom of the hierarchy, houses all of the “worst” students in the school. After this rude awakening, Ayanokouji, Horikita and the rest of Class D must overcome their differences and take on other classes in order to rise to the coveted Class A position by any means necessary.
