Schools in the Americas: Ilvermorny and Castelobruxo

when the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was officially launched in 2016, the Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry gained prominence, as some important characters would have graduated from the institution. According to Wizarding Worldin the ranking of the best schools of magic in the world, Ivermorny would be in one of the highest positions.

Located on Mount Greylock, Massachusetts, in the United States, the school would have been founded 637 years after Hogwarts by the Irish witch Isolt Sayre and her husband James Steward, who, in fact, was not a wizard. With the help of the couple’s two sons, Chadwick and Webster Boot, the four official Houses were created: Horned Serpent (from Isolt) and Pukwudgie (from James), Thunderbird (from Chadwick) and Pumaruna (from Webster).

And the second school of magic and witchcraft in the Americas would be located in Brazil, in the middle of the Amazon rainforest. Known as Castelobruxo, students from all over Latin America can attend classes on site. A curious fact is that typical folklore entities of our country, such as Caipora, would be responsible for protecting the place.

Despite this, one of the former directors of the institution guarantees that these beings are very rebellious and cause a multitude of problems. Even so, students trained in Castelobruxo are known worldwide for being specialists in Herbology and Magizoology, offering free courses to other students in these areas.
