High school is a time many people recall with fond memories, choosing to forget the homework and inability to go to the bathroom without a pass. The time we spent in high school often includes great stories about playing sports, making friends, having a good time at parties, and of course, meeting that special girl or guy you had a crush on the entire year. Considering all this, high school has long been depicted in television and film, which is probably due to the fact that most of the population had similar experiences. Were you the jock, the nerd, or even a mean girl? Whatever your role, there are movies and TV shows about high school pretty much everyone can relate to.
Whether you're looking for new shows about high school or a classic high school comedy, there's certainly something to suit your interests. For those who love a good teen romance story, some of the best movies about high school are all about relationships. John Hughes' entries into the genre are all about "getting the girl" and navigating the halls of a school where you just don't fit in. Ferris Beuler's Day Off is all about a guy who doesn't attend school while TV series like Glee spend most of their screen time with the kids in school. Whatever your preference in the genre, be it comedy, romance, or drama, there's plenty to see that will remind you of your days in high school.
