* The main setting and theme of ''VideoGame/{{Bully}}'' is High School, as you control a BullyHunter who tries to bring peace to the ever-warring cliques of [[BoardingSchoolOfNightmares Bullworth Academy]]... by beating the crap out of them. Plenty of Highschool hi-jinks ensue; panty raids, sabotaging football games, wedgies, swirlies... the whole 9 yards.

* Sora and most of his human friends are supposed to be High School students in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'', but he doesn't seem too concerned that he's now missed a whole year of school while off saving the multiverse. He even expresses amused bewilderment in Twilight Town when Olette asks him about "homework" upon meeting him. Kairi, however, ''was'' shown to attend school while she was back home.

* ''Series/{{Room 222}}'': A high school dramedy from the late 1960s and early '70s, with most of the action at Walt Whitman High School (in a blue-collar Los Angeles neighborhood) taking place in the classroom of Pete Dixon; some scenes shifted as well to the classroom of Alice Johnson, a pretty young college graduate who (in the first season) was in her rookie year of teaching and was gently mentored by Mr. Dixon. Most stories were innocent enough, although there were some very meaty topics thrown in: censorship, plagiarism and cheating, teaching competence, the Vietnam War (still very prevalent in the early 1970s), race relations, the needs of special education students, bullying, anti-gay harassment and much more. Seymour Coffman was the principal and Liz McIntyre was the guidance counselor.

* ''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.
