The series shares a number of actors with Disney-produced shows of the same time period, and bears a significant structural similarity to ''Series/SoWeird''. [[TheFonz Henry Winkler]] served as an executive producer and consultant on both. Stars pretty much the same cast as Series/TheZackFiles, another [[OnlySoManyCanadianActors Canadian]] paranormal live-action kid's show.

* DawsonCasting: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. Like a [[Series/{{Degrassi}} certain other]] Canadian TV show aimed at adolescents, they actually decided to hire actors who were the same (or very near the same) age as their characters.



* NoExportForYou: A DVD set of the first season ''was'' going to be released in the U.K. ONLY.... but then the trope was [[AvertedTrope averted]] when the release ''was canceled without any explanation whatsoever'', turning this instead into a case of [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes Keep Circulating The Tapes]].

* HollywoodScience: Though occasionally averted. Emphasis on the occasionally.

* HollywoodScience: Though occasionally averted. Emphasis on the occasionally.Episodes center around a scientific concept or idea, which are usually explained correctly. Many problems are solved are rooted in real principals. Applying them, however, basically amounts to using their tools, and then things being fixed like magic.

Added DiffLines:

* ArbitrarySkepticism: Many episodes will start with a weird event or symptom happening to a character, followed by the other characters stating that "no, science says this is impossible," until they witness the event for themselves. This occurs constantly despite the fact that it's been established every episode that things are just completely bizarre at the school.

To a fairly large extent, ''Series/BlackHoleHigh'' is simply ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' with the word "supernatural" crossed out and "science" penciled in (though with the nonviolent and [[NoHuggingNoKissing nonsexual]] baggage implied by its younger target audience). The second episode, "Invisible", for example, is a near-identical copy of the ''Buffy'' episode "Invisible Girl"; the key difference being that, rather than attributing a character's disappearance to magic, the nearby black hole caused it to be ''[[SarcasmMode entirely scientifically plausible]]'' that Marshall would, as a result of feeling unnoticed, lose his ability to interact with light.

The show uses emotional states as a metaphor for physical states, leading some people to believe that the recurring theme of the show is that, near a black hole, [[YourMindMakesItReal one's emotional state and social interactions can reshape the laws of physics]], essentially, trying to make science interesting to kids by ''flat out contradicting how science actually works''.
