* While it isnt implemented, for obvious reasons, an episode of ''GravityFalls'' has Grunkle Stan running for mayor and when asked about his ideas for education, wanted a system where children are released on a deserted island to fight amongst themselves. You know, "to teach them about life". He also wanted schools to teach kids to swear.

** This is sadly a real life example. The boarding school, Solbacka, was closed down because of the violence that went on there. The fighting was not actually encouraged in order to solve disputes, but to maintain a hierarchy among the students. It was supposed to 'harden' the boys.

* ''{{Videogame/Bully}}.'' Set in the prestigious baording school Bullworth Academy, a modern-day BoardingSchoolOfHorrors, the kids are encouraged to abuse the hell out of eachother as a symbol of "school spirit". Msot of the students are also separated into cliques which have divided the school amongst themselves: The Nerds, the Preps, the Greasers and the Jocks, with the Jocks being the toughest and most popular group. There's also a fifth, more unofficial group, the Bullies, which include the thugs who dont fit into any of the other ones.

MaskedLuchador and the entire point of the school is to train their students in lucha libre. There's also a nearby rival school where students are taught American-style pro wrestling.

* ''Manga/TenjhoTenge'' had a high school founded by martial arts masters, and as a result even the teachers will fight against their pupils if things get too rowdy. Every year they host a huge battle royal in their school between all of their martial arts clubs.
