* ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' has this in the form of a remedial English class in their otherwise normal high school. The class is constantly in chaos, the teacher is ''tied up and hung from the ceiling'', and a greaser in a leather jacket brings a vicious dog into the classroom, among other things. Drake's SadistTeacher threatens to send him there as a ''punishment''.

* Parodied in ''Film/ClassAct''. The rundown inner city school is ''in the same building'' as the prestigious ElaborateUniversityHigh, seperated only by a door. BookWorm Duncan and the kid-from-the-wrong-side-of-the-tracks Blade end up in each other's classes by mistake after their records get mixed up.

* A complex RealLife example in documentary ''Film/HoopDreams''. Inner-city Marshall High is shown as a big step down from St. Joseph, the hoity-toity private school that kicks Arthur out when his family can't pay tuition. However, the faculty at Marshall are shown to be dedicated and hard-working, and the implication is that they care about Arthur more than the folks at St. Joseph ever did.

* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' universe, the Thieves' Guild School is this, especially when used as a counterpoint to the upmarket and patrician Assassins' Guild school. If the AG School corresponds to an upscale British public boarding school, then the TG School is the downmarket inner city comprehensive ''{{Grange Hill}}''. See ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6093110/1/Clowning-is-a-Serious-Business Clowning is a Serious business]]'', which has a sub-theme of Education in Ankh-Morpork.
