Which of these films are the best movie about dating in High school? That's what we are here to determine with the help of your votes. High school is a time of contradictions. It's both magical and excruciating, both exciting and exhausting, and nowhere is it more confusing than in the world of dating and relationships.
These dating in high school films range from relatively realistic films like The Fault In Our Stars, to musical romps, like Grease. They show all sides of dating in high school. The unspoken crushes, the tempestuous romances, the bullies, and the broken hearts.
Teenage romcoms like these are a relatively new genre. They got their start with the films of John Hughes in the 80s, films like Pretty In Pink, Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club. Since then, the genre has exploded, with the popular teen movies of the 90s like 10 Things I Hate About You, which helped launch the career of Heath Ledger. While the genre never really went away, it's recently experienced a resurgence, thanks to movies like Netflix's To All The Boys I've Loved Before.
So whether you're in high school right now or you're looking to relive those times, take a look at this list of the best dating in high school movies. Vote for your favorites, and add anything we might have missed.
