This whole school is a little weird...
-Lee Ping in "Revenge of the Cycle Killers"

Alexander Nigma High (more commonly known as A. Nigma High) is the school Lee Ping attends and is the main setting for the series. It was founded by the school's first principal, Alexander Nigma, in Toronto, Ontario. It was also the site of the prank that Lee was framed for, which kicked off the start of the series.

The school seems to serve as cover for an underground laboratory, which seems to involve experiments that closely relate to Lee Ping, The Red Tazelwurm, and Coral Grove.
