* ''Series/AsTheBellRings'' is a curious Creator/DisneyChannel show. Originally the Italian ''Quelli dell'intervallo'', the 5-minute-episode show came to Britain and was remade with a British cast... but in a very ''American'' style school (Creator/WilliamShakespeare High), with no uniforms, lockers and ''one'' set - a corridor with a Shakespeare Bust in it. You'd think Disney would at least ask the cast what British schools are like, but no. It was remade for a U.S audience and later featured DemiLovato.

Added DiffLines:

Bells often do not work the same way as real life high schools. In fiction, students will often be seen chatting in the hall while a bell rings and don't seem to have any hurry to go anywhere once the bell does ring. In many real high schools, students are expected to be in the classroom before the bell rings and nobody should be in the hallway at that time.

* ''Film/KidsInAmerica'': Takes Place in a high school

to:

* ''Film/KidsInAmerica'': Takes Place in a high schoolschool.
* As one might expect from the title, ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' puts almost as much emphasis on Peter Parker's life in Midtown School of Science and Technology as it does on his exploits as the eponymous web-slinging superhero.



* In ''Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo'' a West Virginia mining town circa 2000 is transported back in time and the local high school becomes the greatest repository of human knowledge in the world. The author then demonstrates just how much knowlegde is available in such a typical school.

* All of the main characters of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' (with the exception of the elementary student and the TeamPet) attend Gekkoukan High School during the day. A good many of the game's Social Links involve participating in club activities such as the sports and fine arts clubs or the AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil. It also transforms into an EvilTowerOfOminousness at night during [[TimeStandsStill the "hidden" Dark Hour]], when DemonicInvaders called "Shadows" prowl the halls. No, really.
** This trend continued in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', even going so far as to have the main characters be juniors again (though a few sophomores are added to the team as well). Also, the school doesn't change into the EvilTowerOfOminousness, the Student Council is either non-existent or a non-entity, and more attention is paid to the fact that it's a school and not just a place to hang out with people (homework, projects, tests and such are much more heavily featured than P3).

* While all of the ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'' games have a high school as a main location, it wasn't until the third game that high school life itself became a focus:

** This trend continued Much of ''VideoGame/Persona4'' takes place in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', even going so far as to have the main characters be juniors Yasogami High, and your party's starting members are second-years again (though a few sophomores are added to first-years eventually join the team as well). Also, the school doesn't change into the EvilTowerOfOminousness, the Student Council is either non-existent or a non-entity, basically invisible, and more attention is paid to the fact that it's a school and not just a place to hang out with people (homework, projects, tests and such are much more heavily featured than P3).P3).
** In ''VideoGame/Persona5'', you attend Shujin Academy as part of your probation. Though maintaining good grades is still an important part of the game, you're mostly treated as a pariah by the rest of the school, to the point where you have only ''one'' school friend outside of your fellow Phantom Thieves (two if you count your homeroom teacher) and cannot join any club. Though the first major antagonist is the school's volleyball coach, Shujin itself is far less central to its game than Gekkoukan and Yasogami were to theirs.

* Since the involved characters are high school students, the pregames for ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' versions two, three, four, and five took place in the schools the characters attended (Aurora in v5, Bayview Secondary in v4, Southridge in v3, Bathurst, Hobbsborough, Franklyn Senior, and PJ Gilroy Academy in v2) and the cities they lived in (Seattle for v5, St. Paul for v4, Highland Beach for v3, [[WretchedHive Denton]] for v2).

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.

* 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.
