* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' and its sequels, which take the main cast and a handful of supporting characters from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', reimagine them as [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation technicolor humans]], and place them in a high school setting (mostly as students, but characters with a profession of some sort get a job that's somewhat related to what they do in their home series; Cheerilee as a librarian, Granny Smith as a lunchlady, Princesses Celestia and Luna as co-principals, etc.). Interestingly, even besides the magical finales, {{Mundanization}} is completely averted: the first movie establishes this as being a literal alternate universe from mainline Equestria.

* LoadingReadyRun once did a sketch where desperate Hollywood producers listen to increasingly ridiculous High School [=AUs=] of various monsters (including, yes, Cthulhu) to use as the {{Twilight}} phase dies out. Eventually they green-light one involving a burrito.

* ''WesternAnimation/MegaMan2017'' takes this approach to the [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic classic Mega Man series]]. Instead of being a janitorial robot turned fighting robot after one of his co-creators goes rogue, this incarnation of the Blue Bomber is a robot high school student named Aki Light, with Mega Man being his evil-fighting alter ego.

The High School A.U. is an AlternateUniverseFic that may or may not resemble the original universe, but the main premise is that most or all of the characters from whatever universe the story draws from are [[EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether all in an academic setting]]. Usually, this happens to be high school, although [[CollegeIsHighSchoolPart2 college is not unheard of]], nor is Jr. High[=/=]Middle School, depending on the ages of the cast.

This type of story may also occasionally [[{{Mundanization}} remove anything and everything unusual in the original premise]], though this is not necessarily a requirement.
