* ''WebVideo/SchoolOfThrones'' is High School AU of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire' and ''Series/GameOfThrones''. It has three episodes "Prom Night is Coming", "Sexposition" and "Targaryen Burn". It takes place in Westeros Valley High School and kids are split up among various cliques. The Starks are hipsters ("Our way is the vintage way"), Lannisters are bullies (with some hip-hop gansta style), the Baratheons are preppy and fratboy types, and the Greyjoys are the swim team..Dany Targaryen is a foreign exchange student who has a thing for dragons.

** ''Manga/FairyTail''
*** Gets an extended {{Omake}} with a few {{Call Back}}s
** ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' and ''Manga/XxxHOLiC''
*** Strangely, ''[=XxxHOLiC=]'' should qualify as a HSU anyway; the teenage leads are high school students and we sometimes see them at school, albeit not in classes. It's just not the main focus.

(Scroll down; it's in zip format.) However, it's kind of a subversion in that it's not mundane--using AppliedPhlebotinum, several Transformers go undercover in Riverdale, including several who end up going to Riverdale High.

The thriller ''The Glass House'' is vaguely ''{{Hamlet}}'' (with the obligatory shout-outs), and vaguely High School (everyone stays the same ''relative'' ages, so most characters are adults.)

** ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' premiered the same year as ''Film/{{X-Men}}''. It justified this with the conceit that mutants (and super-powered beings in general) were thought by the general public to be nothing more than rumor, hoax, and legend for the first couple of seasons, and Xavier wanted his students to have as normal a life as possible.
*** Back in the 80's, there were plans for an X-Men cartoon that would've featured Comicbook/{{Cyclops}}, ComicBook/{{Storm}}, Comicbook/KittyPryde, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Thunderbird and ComicBook/MsMarvel as teenagers attending a public high school. It never got off the ground, though.

** ''WesternAnimation/IronManArmoredAdventures'' premiered a year after ''Film/IronMan'', about a genius teenager with a suit of armor, his buddies, and the CorruptCorporateExecutive who kicked everything off by having his dad killed. It's about as much like the IronMan comics or movies as the high-school [[Series/{{CSI}} C.S.I.]] fanfics are like the actual Series/{{CSI}} series, but it gets away with it by [[TropesAreNotBad being totally awesome in its own right]].
** ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' for ''Film/SpiderMan3''

''USM'' has [[ComicBook/LukeCageHeroForHire Luke Cage]], [[ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]], ComicBook/WhiteTiger and ComicBook/{{Nova}} attending the same high school as Peter Parker. While White Tiger and Nova are [[CanonImmigrant Canon Immigrants]] created for the show (albeit as {{Legacy Character}}s of existing heroes - the original Nova was originally a teen, the original White Tiger was an adult when he got his powers), Luke Cage and Iron Fist are always depicted as adults in the comic books, with Cage in particular being much older than Spider-Man and Iron Fist not finishing his training until adulthood.

* The existence of the ''official'' HighSchoolAU ''AttackOnTitanJuniorHigh'' may be a reference to the extreme popularity of this in the ''Franchise/AttackOnTitan'' fanbase. This is likely due to the fact that ''Attack On Titan'' has a sort of school camaraderie dynamic in the early chapters when the characters are all still part of the 104th Trainees, but it gets quickly broken as soon as they're official members of the Survey Corps, and the brutal world they live in starts killing them and/or pitting them against each other. High school AUs are a way to preserve that earlier dynamic and keep things fluffy.
* ''Skyhold Academy Yearbook'' takes the cast of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' and drops them into a modern boarding school scenario which the authors describe as "non-magical Hogwarts with random musical numbers." Most of the Inquisition members are teachers, not students.
