There are some new faces in town! Why not get to know them?

The Sims 4 High School Years comes with a brand new world called Copperdale, along with plenty of new Sims who live in the world. Unsurprisingly, the majority of Copperdale’s residents are teenagers so players will have no shortage of premade teens to play through the new high school gameplay with if they want to. There are also some homeless townies who appear to play the role of high school teachers.

Let’s meet all the new faces!

The Price Household

Household Description

High school sweethearts and Copperdale alumni Janae and Marcel Price have returned, moving back into their old neighborhood with their three children: Sidney, Savannah, and Jayden. They also welcomed Kevin, a foreign exchange student, into their lively home. It’s a busy household, stirring with activity and thriving pursuits. While Marcel works on his latest novel, Janae works full-time as a successful Regional Manager. The twins, Savannah and Sidney, each enjoy their own interests while trying to keep up good grades. Jayden looks up to his siblings a lot, and can’t wait to be just like them, his buddy Kevin included. Life can certainly get away from them, but they know they can always depend on one another.

Household Notes

  • The Price family lives on the BridgeCreek Drive lot in the Plumbite Cove neighbourhood of Copperdale
  • Janae and Marcel both have a lot of likes, many of which seem unrelated to their careers or personality. This might indicate they were overachievers in high school; however, their profiles both say they only graduated high school with average grades.
  • Kevin’s room in the house is the plainest of all the bedrooms since he is only staying with the Price family temporarily as an exchange student.
  • Savannah appears to have an entire guest house to herself in the yard, complete with her own private bathroom. One reason may be it allows her to stream at all hours of the day and night without disturbing the rest of the family, but we have a sneaking suspicion she may also be Janae and Marcel’s favourite child. She is their only daughter.
  • Sidney’s bedroom displays lots of award ribbons and is very colourful in various pink, purple, blue, and black tones. This shows off his overachiever personality. It also tells us Sidney is interested in styles that are both traditionally masculine and traditionally feminine.
  • Sidney’s rival is Noah Kane and he appears to dislike Noah, but Noah has the Crush sentiment towards Sidney. This makes for an interesting dynamic between the two.

The Prescott Household

Household Description

Passed down through generations, this historic estate is home to the Prescott Family. Mei Prescott, Copperdale’s High School Principal, lives here with her two daughters and her father, Tai Lum. After her husband’s passing, Mei put all her efforts into protecting her girls and showering them with affection. Often times to an embarrassing degree. Molly is a star student with a secret passion for music. Taking a page from her troublemaker little sister Amy, she’s learning to embrace her more rebellious side. Tai enjoys time with his grandchildren, especially the extra moments he has with Molly when working at the school as a janitor. Together, the family proudly carries on the legacy of the Prescott name.

Household Notes

  • The Prescott household lives on the Golden Peak lot in the Prescott Square neighbourhood of Copperdale, which is named after the Prescott family’s ancestor, Jasper Prescott.
  • According to the description for Prescott Square, the ghost of Jasper Prescott might still be found around the Boomsbluff Mystery House.
  • Mei is a widow and single mother of Molly and Amy. Since she and her father do not share the last name, it can be inferred that Mei married into the Prescott family and that her maiden name is Lum. Having married into such a prestigious family, she may feel extra pressure to live up to her late husband’s name and is projecting that pressure onto her children.
  • Mei has the Gloomy trait and she still uses her late husband’s name. She also still wears her wedding ring. All of this indicates that she is still grieving for him and hasn’t been able to move on, yet.
  • While Molly is friends with Sidney Price, she dislikes his sister, Savannah, and is rivals with her.
  • Amy dislikes kids music and lullabies even though she is a child. This implies that she wants to be seen as more grown up than she is.
  • Tai starts out with a Fear of Death, which makes sense, given that he is an elder. He also starts out wanting to try and conquer this fear.
  • There is a small attic space in the home with a guitar in it. Molly has a passion for music and this is likely her own little retreat in the home where she can get away and play her music.

The Harjo Household

Household Description

Brought together by their mutual obsession over food, Ava and Lucha fell in love. Ava was recently hired at the High School to work in the cafeteria, and with her expert cooking skills, the food has never been better! Lucha, still learning some chops, was promoted to Head Dishwasher and couldn’t be happier. Ash has decided to fully commit to a life of fashion, diving into the Simfluencer lifestyle and spending loads of their time on Trendi. Noah, a bit of a prankster, spends his time training for football and daydreaming about his secret crush, Sidney Price. With teens to raise and recipes to create, the Harjos are in for some wild adventures.

Household Notes

  • The Harjo household lives on the Water Tower Way lot in the Prescott Square neighbourhood of Copperdale.
  • The Harjos appear to be your average blue collar hardworking family. Ava and Lucha both have entry-level jobs in the food industry and their house is small and relatively modest.
  • The Harjos are a blended family; Ash is Lucha’s child and Noah is Ava’s son, making Ash and Noah stepsiblings. Ash and Noah have a neutral relationship with each other and their stepparent, but both have a good relationship with their biological parent.
  • Noah’s interests and bedroom décor show that he’s into sports and likes physical activities but does not excel in stationary, indoor skills.
  • Ash’s bedroom is located in a walkout basement and reflects their loud and colourful personality, as well as their interest in fashion.
  • Noah has a crush on his classmate, Sidney Price, but the two are rivals and Sidney actually dislikes Noah.

  • Eloise is mentioned in the neighbourhood description for Prescott Square where it is revealed that she is the owner of the ThrifTEA thrift and bubble tea shop in town.
