* A place like this was used as a setting in a ComicBooks/{{Spider Man}} story where he was helping ComicBooks/ThePunisher uncover a GovernmentConspiracy involving a huge stash of marijuana. Turned out it was being stored there. ("Makes sense," claimed Frank. "The government has control, nobody would question the presence of munitions or "supplies" and most importantly, who'd ever suspect school children of guarding the world's largest stash?" (Fortunately, they managed to solve the problem without and kids getting hurt, but this was one case where ''Spidey'' got so angry at the guy in charge that ''Frank'' had to hold him back.)

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'', a kid was sent to one of these schools after CryingWolf about {{Alien Invasion}}s too many times; it looked legit until he found out it was under the control of two bona-fide aliens, Wingnut and Screwloose.

The idea of the military school is rapidly becoming a DeadHorseTrope. Military schools were more common in ages where service was a family tradition, especially among aristocrats, and large standing armies sought new manpower all the time. They were (and are) also very common in dictatorships where the school seeks to instill loyalty to the regime (such as the Hitler Youth or the Young Baath Party). In modern America, this had once varied; in the 1990's and the late 1980's, it was considered justified for "problem" kids and delinquents whose parents were oft too busy to handle raising them in a nuclear family structure with a 9 to 5 job, [http://www.orange-papers.org/orange-gulags.html but thanks to massive publicity of on site abuse, deaths of internees, and extremely harsh and inhumane treatment by both incompetent and criminally aggressive individuals, even its to its heads,] sending youths to military camps are viewed as borderline child abuse and most such institutions have closed.

* A WhamLine at the end of the ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' episode "Bowser Junior's Clown Car!" has developed the entire episode into one of the {{Pilot}}s of an upcoming SML series where Junior goes to military school for breaking a table while playing with Bowser's old clown car in the aforementioned video. In an unrelated note, "Cody's Revenge!" serves as the second pilot and the follow-up to "Clown Car!" where Junior gets {{Blackmail}}ed by Cody as revenge [[ButtMonkey for all the things he did to the latter]].

* The idea of sending a child to a military school because of its bad behavior is deconstruced in "Give a Boy a Gun" by Morton Rhue. Brendan, who had trouble with his classmates, would have willingly attended a military school, but they didn't accept him. See "Real Life" for possible reasons.
