The Best Teacher Movies

List Criteria: Movies featuring teachers only

A list of the best teacher movies. These are films that focus on teachers, teaching, and the conflicts our educators often go through when trying to teach. We believe we've thought of them all, but if your favorite teacher films aren't on here, please feel free to add them to the list of the best teacher films. This teacher movie list includes all genres, although teacher movies tend to always lean toward "inspirational".

All types of schools are also included such as elementary, high school, preparatory, public schools, and colleges/universities. Best of all, a number of these films are based on real teachers. So if you're looking for inspiration and have respect for education, these teacher films are the ones for you.

What are the best teacher movies? Take a look here and see for yourself. There are some great selections on this list like School of Rock, Bad Teacher and Mr. Holland's Opus.
