List Rules Songs with school in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about school as a subject.

Music about school can conjure either great or terrible memories, depending on what your youth was like. This is a ranked list of all the best songs about school, including songs about middle school, high school and college. Some of the songs included below may have the words "school" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about school as a subject or theme. There are songs about teachers like The Police's "Don't Stand So Close To Me," and there are songs about finishing school, such as Alice Cooper's "School's Out." Either way these tracks will have you re-tracing your steps in your former school's hallways, remembering the classes, learning and education you received there.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the school songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
