Dragon Ball Wiki

Orange Star High School (オレンジスターハイスクール Orenji Sutā Hai Sukūru), also called Herculopolis High in the English dub, is a high school located in Satan City in which Gohan went to when he turned 17 (he is physically 18 due to training in Hyperbolic Time Chamber, and so placed with others technically born a year before, but he is their age nevertheless), when Chi-Chi decided that home-schooling was no longer an effective form of education for him. At the school, Gohan is told by Chi-Chi not to show off his super strength and power, but ends up showing some of it in P.E. by mistake.



Students in front of Orange Star High School

The school is known as Orange Star High School because Satan City, in which it is located, was originally called Orange City but was later changed to Satan City as an honor towards Mr. Satan whom the world falsely believed had saved them from Cell. For some reason the school retained the former name rather than taking on the new name, possibly to commemorate the former name. The school building itself has four stories and a roof access. It is seen frequently during the Great Saiyaman Saga when Gohan acts as the Great Saiyaman.

Satan City Primary School is seen in Dragon Ball GT: A Hero's Legacy, and it can be assumed this is the facility that leads up to Orange Star High School.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, the Time Patrol constructed a replica of Orange Star High School in Conton City's Business District which serves as home to the Patroller Academy with Old Kai acting as its head administrator. The school is the only building in Conton City that can be entered and features a classroom identical to the one Gohan, Videl, Erasa, and Sharpner studied in. Various historic martial arts masters, warriors, and even villains work as Instructors at the Academy. Additionally, Old Kai can be spoken to in order to take part in Challenge Quests while the Advancement Test Desk CC Robot Tester can be spoken to take advancement tests which allows them to advance to a higher class which increases the number of available lessons or are required be a certain class to train under certain Instructors. In order to train under an Instructor, Time Patrollers must pass their Initiation Test to prove themself worthy. Additionally, bonding certain Instructors can trigger special events where two Instructors will meet inside the school and have a brief conversation.

In Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Orange Star High School can be found in Orange City (which is renamed Satan City after the Cell Games) in the Southeast Mountains Area of Earth. Members of the Z Fighters will comment on the school when they fly by or travel near the building, for example Kid Gohan will hope that he can go to a school like Orange Star High School someday foreshadowing his eventual attendance. Later on, when Gohan starts attending high school, a baseball mini game is unlocked at Orange Star High School.

During the -Trunks-The Warrior of Hope DLC, it is revealed that Orange Star High School survived the future timeline's Android conflict. After Future Trunks defeats the Androids, Orange Star High School returns to operating as a high school while the rest of Orange City rebuilds.


  • The high school's name, "Orange Star", comes from the original name of Satan City, Orange City. Interestingly, even though the city was renamed in Mr. Satan's honor following Cell's defeat, the high school was not.
    • However, it is renamed after Hercule in the English dub despite its original name being written on the building.
  • The name "Orange Star" is a reference to the mythical Dragon Balls, which are orange and have a certain number of stars on them, hence the name "Orange Star."
  • Despite being called Orange Star High School, the star is actually white on the building (but the background is orange). However, the star on the badges worn by students is a yellowish orange color.
  • In both the manga and anime, it's been stated by Erasa that 439 East District (Gohan's former address) is over 1000 kilometers (1,000,000 meters, or 621.371 miles) away from Orange Star High School. At one point, Gohan stated that (in his base form) it would take him 20 minutes to fly from his house to the roof of the high school. If so, he would need to travel at least Mach 2.44889, or about 3000 kilometers per hour (1864.113 mph) to cover that distance. Meanwhile, it's been stated it would take a jet 5 hours (or 18000 seconds) to travel that same distance, meaning that said jet would only be traveling at 200 km/h (or 124.274 mph).
  • During the Super Hero Saga, Goten, Trunks, & Mai attend the Blue Hal High School instead of Orange Star High School. Blue Hal High School is apparently a more elite school than Orange Star High School.
