He volunteered to return to his old high school and teach this class, hoping to help kids who were in the same position he had been in in high school.

Ironically, other episodes show [[SuckySchool Springfield Elementary]] is seen the same way by the rest of the school district.

Added DiffLines:

* Chris from ''Series/EverybodyHatesChris'' has to go to all-white schools outside his neighborhood because the schools right there, [[Series/SanfordAndSon Lamont Sanford Junior High]] and [[Series/TheJeffersons Marla Gibbs High]] are stated by his mother to be full of drop-outs and delinquents (though we never see these schools on-screen).


* ''VisualNovel/GrisaiaNoKajitsu'' (Fruit of Grisia) has the brand new Mihama Academy serving this role for students who unable to consistently function long-term in society due to their own emotional/mental issues or due to public backlash from their original hometowns that would cause detrimental effects to themselves or others in a normal school. The academy comes complete with [[BoardingSchool its own dormitory]] to serve as a home for those students while keeping them closely watched. This example is a slightly lighter one though as well-behaved students are permitted to roam out of the academy to buy their own groceries, get a job or participate in village events; thus the academy operates similar to a half-way house for those under probation.

* In ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'', it turns out the protagonists' class is where all the problem students are dumped so the other students [[StrawLoser can feel better about themselves]] and [[ExpectationLowerer work hard to avoid going there]]. When they actually get better at schoolwork the school staff actively keeps them down and publicly humiliates them to maintain the status-quo (it takes the moon-destroying alien teacher going ShameIfSomethingHappened to tone it down).

Added DiffLines:

* ''LightNovel/ClassroomOfTheElite'': D-class, where the school dumps its inferior students. In order to ridicule them.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/RobinSeries'': Brentwood Academy (the school Jack forcibly transfers Tim to after getting remarried) acts as a school for the problem children of the rich, who have been expelled from the other schools around or are unable to pass the entrance exams for more prestigious high schools. One of his roommates was a drunk, and another classmate had an incredibly violent anger issue that got him expelled from previous schools for hurting his classmates. Tim ends up there because of the point in the school year at which his dad forced him to change schools.

Added DiffLines:

* WesternAnimation/BromwellHigh is rather strongly implied to be one of these.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Anime/LoveLiveSunshine'' movie, after [[spoiler:Aqours failed to save their school]] in the series and the movie has [[spoiler:the Uranohoshi students transferred to another school out of town, they end up in a dumpy building that hasn't been used in years because the new school's administration doesn't believe that a bunch of small-town students would be able to compete with city kids at anything. Aqours having won the last Love Live doesn't even convince them, despite school idols being a certified phenomenon at this point, and one of the objects of the film is to convince them that they're still as good or better than their city counterparts.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Metropolitan Sainotama Girls' High School in ''Manga/WastefulDaysOfHighSchoolGirls'' is noted to be academically mediocre; Majime once noted "its standard score ranking is only as high as the intelligence level of a four-year old is." [[TeenGenius Robo]] and Majime are actually ''too'' good for this school and are known to be here under rather unusual circumstances—-in Robo's case, {{def|iedtrope}}ying IntelligenceEqualsIsolation as her {{Childhood Friend}}s are there, and in Majime's case, falling seriously ill during high school admission exams.
