J.K. Rowling: New Pottermore Ilvermorny story debuts
As such, spoilers will be present within the article. Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is the American wizarding school ,  located on Mount Greylock in modern-day Massachusetts. Students of this school, as at Hogwarts in Scotland , are sorted into four houses. When Newt Scamander travelled to New York in the s , he met several people including Porpentina and Queenie Goldstein who were educated at this school. The castle was once a granite stone house constructed by Isolt Sayre and James Steward to be their home. When it eventually became a school, the cottage kept expanding until it became a castle.
Tue, June, 28 by Allison Bowsher. Today, that material comes in the form of a short video uploaded to the Pottermore site explaining the history of the Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Written content explains how the sorting ceremony works. Rather than relying on a magic hat like Hogwarts, the American sorting ceremony has four wooden mascots representing the four houses, including Horned Serpent, Pukwudgie, Thunderbird and Wampus. The mascots select the students and should a student be selected by more than one mascot, the student gets to choose their house. Kinda like The Voice , but with more flying.
