* ''YoungWizards'': played straight through most of the series, with the mundane world and school not stopping for Kit, Nita, and Dairine's wizard duties. Many of the subplots throughout the series deal with them working around their wizard life so that non-wizards don't notice, including the ramifications of what happens when their parents do find out. The series handles it believably, and doesn't let anyone off easy, with both wizardry and non-wizardry shown to be equally problematic and difficult to deal with.

* ''YoungWizards'': Interestingly inverted in the fifth book, when [[spoiler:the fact that Kit and Nita had a fight in the beginning and Kit wrote her name out of a wizardry they were going to do but didn't erase it allows him to ''save her life'' when she makes a DealWithTheDevil to save her mother from terminal cancer by writing that version of her name back into a new wizardry and thus "resetting" her morally to the person who hadn't made any deals. [[FridgeLogic Interestingly]], although this works, reusing a name which also includes her age, physical characteristics, and every other piece of information about her in a setting where [[LanguageOfMagic saying/writing it in the Speech makes it real]] doesn't have any other side effects at all.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/AtomicPuppet'': Joey Felt teams up with the eponymous [[BalefulPolymorph superhero-turned-sock-puppet]] to fight crime when not in school, though the show tends to focus more on the superhero antics than the school part.

* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'': It's deconstructed as the burdens of maintaining TheMasquerade have had consequences on Jake's life, such as missing school and social obligations to those not in the know. In "Being Human", he purposely gets his position as American Drago revoked to have some time off, and the duty falls to his younger sister Haley. Within ''one week'' she's reduced to being a nervous wreck, and when she hears their grandfather and her own dragon master complaining about Jake not rising flawlessly to the job, [[CallingTheOldManOut this]] is her response;

** Increasingly deconstructed, as the constant attacks leave little room for studying or staying in class. Particularly from the second season onward, where the Return to the Past is used less and less, as each use [[spoiler: increases the memory of the supercomputer, and by extension XANA's power]].
* ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' Though in the early seasons this got a bit of flak for too much school, not enough world saving (less "how can I use my powers to help people?" and more "how do I stop people from knowing I have powers?" essentially). The outing of mutants "fixed" that though, bringing in more action and less wangst.

* Shinichi, the hero of ''Manga/{{Parasyte}}''. Somewhat deconstructed towards the end. Though he just barely manages to graduate, he flunks all his college entrance exams and is doomed to a life of poverty, and thus his future with LoveInterest Satomi is far from certain.

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} always finds harder to attend school and make friends than being a super-hero. In ''Comicbook/SupergirlRebirth'' she attends National City High School along with being a teen superhero, but she doesn't manage to fit in with her schoolmates because she isn't familiarized with human social customs and Earth's science is primitive and ancient to her. However she has saved the world dozens of times for now.

* ''Series/MechX4'' has a subversion: The team still has to juggle school along with saving the world from giant monsters, but they're frequently in danger treated as more significant than high school. To make matters worse, their principal is one of the villains who is aware that one of them is a student.

* ''{{ComicBook/Superboy}}'' pre-Crisis was this, as Clark attended Smallville High along with being a superhero. It stays this way once he goes to Metropolis University (and changes his name to {{Franchise/Superman}}), and shifts to "Wake Up, Go to Work, Save the World" once he graduates college and starts working at the ''Daily Planet.''
