Staff & Faculty
Episode 18 - Death and Sid talking about student gangs

The headmaster conversing with one of the teachers about "student gangs".

Death Scythe Meister Academy, as a school, not only possesses a student body but also its own staff and faculty. They run the day-to-day operations of the school facility. There's various jobs within the academy for the staff, in which mostly either participate in teaching or are charge of some of the administrative portions of the school.



  • Maka contacting the Headmaster
  • Kid speaking to his father about a mission
  • A student calling the headmaster for advice
  • Death watching Student progress on a mission

The Headmaster has perhaps the most power in the entire school. A headmaster seems responsible for the student register,[1] has the ability to decide whether or not students should take a remedial class,[2] and supervises student progress[2] as well as make the final decisions on the lessons that are taken.[3]

It seems that the position of Headmaster is exclusive to those who are Death Gods, in which includes the new headmaster even adopting the "Shinigami-sama" title, which was addressed to Death in a form of respect.[4] There's a special ceremony in which is known as the New Shinigami Coronation in which a new Death God is officially known as the new headmaster of Death Scythe Meister Academy.[4]

In the academy, it seems that all individuals who teach classes, especially those who teach within the EAT Curriculum, are known as three-star meisters/weapons and are highly ranked[2] They're responsible for teaching the class the subject in question and have a variety of responsibilities.

  • Spirit looking through the attendance for Soul.
  • Spirit giving Soul the lowest grade in Evaluation.
  • Mira Naigus teaching a class
  • Stein announcing.
  • Stein doing a dissection.

Teachers seem to have a responsibility of taking attendances though may skip doing so.[2] However, when taking attendance, there's also a grade in which they can input depending on how a student behaves (their "Evaluation").[2] The lowest grade for this is "E", in which means "Evil".[2] They're also responsible for teaching the class and are able to do so however they see fit.[2] However, when urged by the headmaster, they abide by his wishes.[3]

Teachers are allowed to formally discipline the students, whether it be physical or giving them a chore to do.[5]
