Poseidon Elementary School is a local elementary school Mr. Krabs and Plankton attended as juveniles. It is seen in the episode "Friend or Foe" during a flashback, and returned in "The Clam Whisperer."



Poseidon Elementary School has a rather unique shape with the top being red in color and the bottom being black in color. It has a set of double doors and five windows on it. The school's name is written on the top section in orange.

Role in episode

Mr. Krabs and Plankton were both laughing stocks at this school, primarily to class bullies led by Billy. Mr. Krabs was called Rag Boy because he actually wore cloths and rags, and Plankton was made fun of for being diminutive yet intelligent and because he was Mr. Krabs' friend. Mr. Krabs and Plankton viewed their experience at the school negatively.

The kids of this school go to a local burger joint called Stinky Burgers, owned by the man Stinky. Stinky liked all of his kids, except for Mr. Krabs and Plankton, for the same shallow reasons as the children of Billy's gang. A teacher could be seen, but he was not teaching any lessons nor stopping other students from teasing Mr. Krabs or Plankton.

  • The school's name may be referencing King Neptune, as Poseidon's roman name is Neptune.
