* Smart Brain High School in ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' is the battle ground of the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Orphnochs]] and [[HenshinHero Kamen Rider Faiz]], effectively making it a canon HighSchoolAU of [[Series/KamenRiderFaiz the original show]]. What's worse is that Lucky Clover, the school's [[TheBully popular clique that rules with an iron fist]], are all Orphnochs too. [[spoiler: So is Faiz himself.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Holliday College is a women's college near Washington D.C. which Franchise/WonderWoman frequently visited, and where there were frequent attacks by Nazis, pirates, masked villains, and extraterrestrials which the vast majority of the student body absolutely loved fighting off. Many of the Holliday Girls were trained in [[SupernaturalMartialArts Amazonian martial arts]] and ComicBook/SteveTrevor was just as happy to rely on Etta--even before she graduated and joined the Air Force--to watch his back during missions as he was to have other USAAF personnel along.


* The GURPS setting IOU (Illuminati University; you're not cleared to know what the "O" stands for) is set in one of these.

Added DiffLines:

* The York facility for training heroes from ''Webcomic/SurprisingOcteal'' is described as, "sort of like a university campus".


* ''Literature/DivineBloodNovels'': Bravura Academy is more or less a normal boarding school that boasts both a college and high school campus. The high school level kids are already learning college level courses. While the school itself is focused on normal student hijinks it is the focus of several power groups. Bravura itself is sponsored by [[NGOSuperpower Avalon]] who also uses a front company security organization to test potential recruits. Then there's the students, which include an [[ChildSoldier Avalon soldier]], a [[PsychicPowers "Visionary"]], a ManicPixieDreamGirl, three [[HalfHumanHybrid demi-gods]], a Demoness, and a werewolf.

Generally, this tends to happen to any school the [[DoomMagnet hero]] is enrolled in or teaching in, so it can be anything from a grade school to a college. See also CityOfAdventure and BuildingOfAdventure. Just like there, contrast NothingExcitingEverHappensHere. If the school explains its weirdness factor by having super powered students, monster students or magical classes, then it's either an ExtranormalInstitute (especially if it's a SuperheroSchool), an AllGhoulsSchool or a WizardingSchool, respectively.

respectively. Such a school would often be a WorldOfMysteries.


* Yuuei/U.A. High School serves this purpose in ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia''. In normal circumstances it's a school that allows future superheroes to train their powers up. Since the series has started the students have fought off at least one supervillain attack and their sports festival is an even bigger event than the Olympics.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Deconstructed}} in ''LightNovel/TheAsteriskWar'', which goes into detail on the kind of CrapsackWorld that would deliberately turn super-powered school children into the prize-fighters of annual {{Tournament Arc}}s.
