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]](typically set in the present day). 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.

** ''Shin Megami Tensei If'' inspired Atlus to create the very successful ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Franchise'' to appeal to the casual gamer market, essentially ''spinning off the spin-off''. It deals with {{Ordinary High school Student}}s, going through their school life, while summoning aspects [[CarlJung of their personalities]] as they fight against demonic {{Eldritch Abomination}}s [[ItMakesSenseInContext called shadows]].

* ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/series/725397 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.

* Many Superhero Blockbuster Summer Action movies throughout the 2000s would have an animated series released at or around the same time to ride the wave of renewed interest and popularity of the character. Usually taking the core cast and if not being explicitly in highschool, then at at least explicitly younger than they are usually interpreted.
** ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' premiered the same year as ''Film/XMen1''. 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.

** ''WesternAnimation/IronManArmoredAdventures'' premiered a year after ''Film/IronMan1'', 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]].

** ... and replaced with ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'' just in time for ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan''. ''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.

** ''WesternAnimation/MarvelsSpiderMan'' was released at least a month after ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming''. It goes back to ''Spectacular Spider-Man's'' roots of a High School focused show. Peter Parker gets accepted into Horizon High (a high school version of Horizon Labs) and some of its top students (Anya Corazon, Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy), who are known spider-heroes, are as old and smart and Peter Parker.

*** Interestingly, a majority of characters have been [[AgeLift aged down a bit]] and [[AdaptationalIntelligence their brains boosted up]]. Otto Octavius is around Peter's age and already he got his doctarate and works for Horizon High. Alistair Smythe is a student a Midtown High where his father, Spencer Smythe is a science teacher.
***Keeping in mind with the high school element, after Harry's wrongful sunspension from Horizon High, Norman created a new school for him, Osbron Academy for Geinuses. John Jameson applied for it, a young man who is an ace in astrophysics, enforced by the fact NASA adopted two of his ideas. Herman Schultz (Shocker) and Clayton Cole (Clash) also applied whilst demonstrating prototypes of their trademark weapons.

** There's also the infamous ''Homestuck High'' [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7324877/1/Homestuck-high fanfic]], which is [[SoBadItsGood So Bad, It's Good]].



** ''FanFic/HomestuckHigh'' starts out as one, and rapidly falls into insanity.
