Eitoku Academy (英徳学園,Eitoku Gakuen) is an escalator school located in Yamanote area of Tokyo, Japan. It is an "ultra private" school that primarily caters to upper-class families with a few exceptions, such as Tsukushi Makino. The school goes from kindergarten to university, meaning a student could receive their entire education from Eitoku.
"It's because the F4 were here. The legendary clique of Eitoku Academy."

The high school division began suffering from a twenty percent decrease in applicants after the F4's graduation. A new school, Momonozono Academy has emerged as the Eitoku's rival, gaining an eighteen percent increase in applicants. The decrease had a huge impact on the school's finances with no funds for repairs. Some students who took the entrance exam decided not to enroll, though some still enroll because of the F4's legacy.
After Megumi transferred to Eitoku, the school witnessed a new trend called "Eitoku Hunting". Over fifteen students from Eitoku were threatened and covered in yellow paint by unknown assailants, including Oto Edogawa.
Eitoku Academy University (英徳学園大学,Eitoku Gakuen Daigaku) is the fourth level of an escalator school, located near the high school division in Yamanote, Tokyo. The F4, except Tsukasa, and Tsukushi enrolled in Eitoku University after graduating from the high school division.
The university division appears in the 1995 Hana Yori Dango film. In the film, Tsukushi Makino and the F4 are attending the university, instead of the high school. Much of the university is featured throughout the first scenes of the film.
