* ''WesternAnimation/{{Detentionaire}}'''s A. Nigma Hish School. Let's see: a weird snake/dragon/lizard monster thing called a Tazelwurm (who also happens to be the school's mascot) crawling around in the vents, secret passageways literally ''everywhere'', an eye-patched cyborg principal, a [[spoiler:mysterious {{pyramid|Power}}]] under the school, most of the teachers being [[spoiler:clones of famous people]], vacuum-wielding [[HazmatSuit hazmat]] janitors, mysteries, conspiracies... there's quite a lot of adventure to be had.

* Coal Hill School in ''Series/DoctorWho'' and its spinoff ''Series/Class'' - it has had three of the Doctor's companions (or four, depending on how you define 'companion') as teachers, at least three aliens as staff or students (Susan, Charlie and Ms Quill) and the Doctor himself as a caretaker. All this timey-wimey activity has made the school a hotspot for tears in time through which all manner of alien threats emerge.

* ''[[Manga/BlueExorcist Ao No Exorcist]]'''s True Cross Academy is this, due to being also a base for the Knights of the True Cross aka [[DemonSlaying Exorcists]] and where the Japan Branch's cram school/training academy for budding exorcists is. Also, the Headmaster is a demon [[spoiler: more specifically one of the Demon Kings and second eldest Satanic son]] and our main (and titular) character is the [[HeroicBastard bastard]] [[HalfHumanHybrid Son]] of {{Satan}}, aka the resident living WeirdnessMagnet that amps up the weird to UpToEleven.

* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', the school aboard [[CoolAirship Castle Wulfenbach]]. It provides schooling and training for the future rulers of Europe and further afield (at least one from China, one from India and one from the Middle East), and the fact that a lot of them are [[MadScientist Sparks or the children of Sparks]] means that there are a ''lot'' of shenanigans. Their [[MamaBear carer]]/[[MagicalNanny teacher]]/[[ParentalSubstitute mother figure]] is SuperSoldier and DarkActionGirl Von Pinn, which doesn't improve things. [[EmperorScientist Baron Wulfenbach]] just generally seems resigned by it all.
