Fiction tends to regard the HighSchool and its students as [[SeriousBusiness central to the workings of the Universe]]. Adult characters will always look back on their high school years as either the best or the worst of their lives, and will remember every detail of their time in high school as if it had just taken place the previous day. This is generally not TruthInTelevision; most adults (or at least those who were not abused) barely remember high school, considering it as a relatively unimportant prelude to their real, adult lives. Other times they may hold an idealized vision of high school due to the NostalgiaFilter, blocking out all the stuff they ''hated'' about high school and only remember the stuff they liked. Despite this, high school is about the only experience that a majority of the adult audience is guaranteed to have in common, even if they failed to graduate.

A subtrope is InnerCitySchool. When the HighSchool days are overtly idealized, it becomes HighSchoolRocks.

* In ''Series/GilmoreGirls'', Chilton, being a private school, does not obey many of the standard public HighSchool cliches. However, plot-driven class lengths are so powerful that the average class lasts about three and a half minutes.

* 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 [[BoardingSchoolOfHorrors 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.

As the high school setting is crucial to the formula of the show, producers often find ways to [[NotAllowedToGrowUp draw out the high school experience]]. Almost all shows start in freshman year. On ''BeverlyHills90210'', an extreme case, the producers actually had the students go to junior year twice. Finally, the cast is often made to attend a CaliforniaUniversity to keep the group together.

* ''Manga/LuckyStar'', set in Ryou High School, is an odd example. Even though it's supposed to be high school, everyone looks and sounds like they're Becky's age (see above), talks about things that real high schoolers don't talk about (e.g. food, the dentist, Santa Claus, growing, animal motifs), and the music sounds a lot more appropriate for grade school, consisting of a rinky-dink piano and some other such instruments. However, Konata and Patricia do have a part-time job, and there is talk about breast sizes or current events every now and then. Its anime studio [[Creator/KyotoAnimation is the same company]] that gave us the following two examples:
