TV High School Cliques Whose Tables You'd Most Want to Sit At

List Rules
High school cliques from TV shows only (sorry, Plastics from Mean Girls!). Vote up the groups you would most want to be part of.

When it comes to choosing the best TV cliques, the competition is tough. Add high school angst into the mix and things get even crazier. The trademark of a successful hangout show is a group of friends who everyone would love to chill with, even if "chilling" sometimes involves fighting monsters, dealing with gossip, or handling so much drama you’ll have to put your therapist on speed dial. Their lives are generally way more interesting than those of regular teens, so there’s no wonder you’d like a seat at their table. No offense to your current friend group.

The best high school TV cliques allow you to live vicariously through their crazy adventures until you feel like you’re actually part of the gang. The members are relatable, flawed, silly; and their coming of age stories are usually so epic you can’t help but feel just a tiny bit jealous. So which group would you most want to hang out with? Here are the best high school cliques from television. Vote up the ones from your favorite shows!

    These guys made nerdy look cool. They managed to keep their sense of humor intact while dealing with major issues like saving the world, so you know you’d have fun even if your only job would be to browse through dusty mythology books. Plus, you might get to fight some vampires, which would certainly look good on you resume.

    Sure, you wouldn’t do much, but at least you could hang out at the water tower or ride around town in the Vista Cruiser. And who doesn’t like to engage in idiotic conversations while high? Did you know there is a car that runs on water? It runs on water, man!

    Notable members: Elena, Caroline, Bonnie

    Hanging out with Elena and the gang would never be boring. You’d get to meet feisty vampires, learn all about doppelgangers, and get a front row seat to the love triangle of the century. Not too shabby for a small town like Mystic Falls.
