The 50 Best High School Movies

Yes, I’m only a week into my whole “college experience”, but that does not mean I can’t appreciate NOT being in high school anymore. (You could give me a million dollars and I still wouldn’t go back.)

And to celebrate the unfortunate souls who are still in high school, here’s a movie list just for you.[SOURCE]

Some of y favorites from the list are: Splendor in the Grass (1961), Sixteen Candles (1984), Napoleon Dynamite (2004), Can’t Hardly Wait (1998), The Virgin Suicides (2000), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), Brick (2006):

Hoop Dreams (1994), Bring It On (2000), Pretty in Pink (1986), Rushmore (1998), Dead Poets Society (1989), The Last Picture Show (1971):

Donnie Darko (2001), High School (1968), Mean Girls (2004) Say Anything (1989)

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986), Election (1999), Clueless (1995), American Graffiti (1973), Rebel Without a Cause (1955) The Breakfast Club (1986)


So many great movies on this list! I think Mean Creek and Blackboard Jungle were overlooked. And can any movie ever top The Breakfast Club?

One thought on “The 50 Best High School Movies”

  1. A GREAT list. They also overlooked High School Confidential, filmed in 1958 and was so bad that it became a cult favorite. Michael Landon and John Drew Barrymore are part of the cast.
