* ''Series/SavedByTheBell'' also had the archetypical one-hall layout, though was fortunate enough to have multiple classrooms. It also had unisex bathroom scenes, but less often. To further compound the claustrophobic nature of the set, there exists a [[http://www.x-entertainment.com/messages/486.html theory]] that the entire ''Saved By The Bell'' universe is contained inside the school. Furthermore, Bayside High is an example of TelevisionGeography: in ''Good Morning Miss Bliss'' (The original title of the series), it was Midwestern, moving to northern California for ''SavedByTheBell''. The selfsame school reappeared years later in ''Series/ThatsSoRaven'', by which time it had migrated to San Francisco.

* The blurb for Creator/LaurenKate's ''Unforgiven'' starts with "High school can be hell". And Trumbull High literally is Hell for [[TheProtagonist Lilith]] - one of tailor-made Hells that she's spent the last three millenia in. All teachers are nasty or clueless, other students look down at her, apparently only because she is poor and has an ill brother, and when she tries to rebel, she only gets detention. For bonus points, since it's Hell, there are no weekends. And the whole plot takes place in the 14 weeks leading up to prom, which seems to be the single obsession of all students (apart from Lilith, that is).

* ''SuperhumanSamuraiSyberSquad'' featured both a hallway and a cafeteria with a small stage. At one point a closeup of one of the cafeteria walls was used for a scene in the principal's office.

In RealLife, school buildings often have additions that are designed with little or no attempt to match the existing building inside or out, making it possible for two or more completely different-looking regular-classroom architectures to exist in one school. This seldom happens in fiction because 1) [[ViewersAreMorons they think it would confuse people]], and 2) there's often only one "regular classroom" set and its decorations, orientation and such are changed as set dressing for scenes set in "different" classes.

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'' may be television's UrExample, with much of the action taking place at Madison High School. A SoundToScreenAdaptation, the program first aired on the radio in 1948, debuted on television in the autumn of 1952. Our Miss Brooks' GrandFinale, a film released in 1956, was the second [[TheMovie cinematic adaptation]] of a television series ([[{{Dragnet}} Joe Friday]] beat Miss Brooks to the punch by four years).

* The CLAMP school, which shows up in ''{{CLAMP School Detectives}}'' and ''[[{{X1999}} X/1999]]'', is in the shape of a pentagram and contains all of the facilities necessary for daily life. In fact, the whole of the CLAMP campus contains schools from kindergarten through highly advanced university, and houses in excess of ten thousand students, plus various other people. The claim that it is wholly self-sufficient is made at least once.

* ''LightNovel/TheMelancholyOfHaruhiSuzumiya''. Still a lot of focus on {{Moe}}, but at least there, the girls look more their age (Haruhi-chan spinoff notwithstanding). As for the school itself, most of the action takes place in the club room where the titular character hosts her SOS Brigade, though there is focus on other parts of the school.

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'', the three schools described in any detail are the Assassins' Guild School (initially boys only, now co-ed), the Quirm Academy for Young Ladies (girls only) and Hugglestones (boys only). All three pack in every trope you can think of concerning British boarding school life and expressly parody both real and fictional public schools[[note]]"Public" in the British sense of being exclusive and fee-paying[[/note]] with every knob turned UpToEleven.
