The archetypical high school set consists of a single hallway lined with [[StuffedIntoALocker wide lockers]], and three doorways leading to a classroom, the principal's office, and a rest room. An interesting note is that in RealLife, many high schools in the southern and western parts of the US are "open-air" -- meaning, classroom doors open to the outside, and there are no hallways at all. It's {{egregious}} with the many high school-centric television shows set in California, a state which has almost exclusively open-air campuses. It should be noted that the big gothic-looking schools of film were designed for maximum heat in winter. In the Mediterranean climate where this is less of an issue, open air schools were built to keep classrooms cool, but once air conditioning became universal in schools in the 2000s, the trend went back towards one large building.

* ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'' had it all, and did a lot of LampshadeHanging about it. The school was named for John Adams (probably a reference to the fact that William Daniels, who played one of the only faculty members we ever saw, had played John Adams in both the Broadway play and the film adaptation of ''[[SeventeenSeventySix 1776]]''); it had two classrooms (to accomodate a second teacher introduced for one season) but only one hallway (The "Senior Hallway" seen in later episodes is the same set shot from a different angle). In one season finale, a recurring character who had left the cast years ago reappeared, and explained his absence by pointing offstage and announcing that all his classes had been down the other hall. The regulars responded with shock and fear, as they had never set foot in that part of the building themselves.

* The default map for ''MitadakeHigh'' is a high school, funnily enough. Some logical thinking about where things are coupled with some hijinks like you get up to in your actual school will soon leave you knowing the place like the back of your hand.

** Which is, of course, justified; would you really want to read a comic depicting the characters sitting in a room and listening to a history lecture for fifty minutes? Teachers tend to get annoyed when students talk amongst themselves instead of paying attention, even if what they're talking about is objectively more interesting than the official subject of the class.
