The author notes on Pottermore.com that "as a general rule, magical schools tend to be situated in landlocked, mountainous areas (although there are notable exceptions, as will be seen), as such regions are difficult for Muggles to access, and easier to defend from Dark wizards." She adds, "The precise location of each of the following schools is a closely guarded secret."
