* VideoGame/OurDarkerPurpose takes place in what may be the worst boarding school in video game history: a supernatural death-fest mega-prison, where kids are constantly killed/tortured/whatever by intentionally poor-designed school practices, sadistic (and superhuman) school cliques, supernatural occurrences stemming from poorly maintained areas and items, and a general lack of hope from being trapped in a magic prison surrounded by wastelands with no idea of who they are or why they deserve to be here. All while the headmasters laugh and snark at the many deaths of the protagonist. Towards the end it's revealed that [[spoiler:the boarding school is one big mental world of a famous (and Joker-like) criminal mastermind, whose psychopathic tendencies originate from his own traumatizing experiences at his orphanage school, the worst of which came from the other kids, with the main character as the worst of the lot; a shy little girl who likes to throw lit matches at shy little boys for the evulz. The kids in his world represent his cruelty and ingenuity; they are used for his infamous wacky heists and then terminated to prevent them from taking control and driving him insane. Cordy was so important to him that he needed to recreate and kill her (and her two former friends Goneril and Regan) hundreds of times, but once he's injected with PyschoSerum during a battle with his archnemesis, Cordy slowly gains the experience needed to fight back. And she's ''worse'' than anything else in the school.]]

* This is what happens to Lily Floris in the 1864 novel ''[[https://books.google.com/books?id=E_dBAAAAYAAJ&printsec=frontcover#v=onepage&q&f=false Quite Alone]]'' by George Sala. Initially left at a strict but reasonable boarding school, she ends up dumped her in one of these. The Pension Marcassin is a hellhole that makes Dickens' worst schools look good. Even the best students are ridiculed as completely without merit, the rules are set up so that it is impossible not to break them, punishments are sadistic and the food is ghastly. Lily isn't even a student most of the seven years she spends there; her tuition money runs out and she ends up like ''[[ALittlePrincess Sara Crewe]]'' an indentured servant.

* ''AChristmasCarol'' rounds out the Charles Dickens hat-trick: Ebenezer Scrooge spent his childhood years at one. Uniquely, ''A Christmas Carol's'' horror is on a more abstract, intellectual level: at Scrooge's school, his teachers strove to pound out any and all glimmers of imagination and fantasy and replace them with cold, hard, facts. Said teachers are not presented as out-and-out villains (indeed, we never see them as characters in their own right), but as practitioners of [[SocietyMarchesOn then-accepted teaching standards]]. The Ghost of Christmas Past effectively punctures Scrooge's NostalgiaFilter over his school days and forces him to confront what it ''really'' did.

* ''Fanfic/BigHumanOnCampus'' exaggerates Youkai Academy's tendency towards this for comic effect. All the authority figures (except for Fran and Ms. Nekonome) are apathetic to students' suffering at best and cheerfully homicidal at worst. The school is terrorized by the Protection Committee, and most of the normal students fall into BlueAndOrange morality if they're not outright evil, and everyone tends to take a very casual view towards violence.
