High school was an awesome time in my life (Andress High El Paso, Texas) as I guess that's why I still enjoy films about it and so I'm curious as to what are your top 5 High School films?

My top five.

#1 Rock n Roll High School

#2 Three O'Clock High

#3 Can't Buy Me Love

#4 The Breakfast Club

#5 Some Kind of Wonderful

“I hated high school. I don’t trust anybody who looks back on the years from 14 to 18 with any enjoyment. If you liked being a teenager, there’s something wrong with you.” (Stephen King)

My Top 5:

1.) FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF

2.) VERONICA MARS (the TV show; not the movie)

3.) CARRIE (the 1970s version)

4.) HEATHERS

5.) REMEMBER THE TITANS

I can't believe Pretty in Pink hasn't been mentioned. That's my number one. In no particular order I'd say Can't Buy Me Love, Sixteen Candles, maybe Just One of the Guys & Some Kind of Wonderful.

I cannot believe it took 9 posts before someone mentioned Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

That one and The Breakfast Club were the best 2.
