Greatest High School Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Breakfast Club

Best High School movie ever. Please, no sequels. No remakes. It's just that damn good. Do NOT remake this.

I can only wish for and fathom what a sequel to this movie would be like. It would be interesting to see how the Breakfast Club acted on Monday or even to see how they could have been five years from them. I wish there was a follow-up. - maarilynmaanson

The best popcorn movie ever to exist. - fireinside96

Usually shown on ABC Family (channel 311) and on Feeln (android app). - playstationfan66

2 Fast Times at Ridgemont High
3 Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Person saying this is a bad movie, I have seen both films you are talking about, completely different, but this is better

All the worst movies have many problems with them, and Ferris Bueller is no different. Hideously unfunny, stretched-out jokes, poor acting, actors too old for their characters, scenes that don't make sense, and the worst "doesn't know wehre to end" case in the history of cinema. It currently sits at 80 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The mindblowingly spectacular Boy in the Striped Pajamas is 63 and the incredibly fantastic Goonies is something like 67. Ah, humanity.

How is this 5 and mean girls 3, may I ask,

I love a few movies on this list but Ferris Beuler's day off is awesome - Ajkloth

4 Dazed & Confused

It's freakin' funny, and I've seen it more than 1000 times. Literally! - westofohio

This deserves to be in the top 10, at least. This movie explains everything! - maarilynmaanson

One of the worst films ever made. Darla hated that film for decades. Don't get me wrong. Darla's #1 film is Bridge to Terabithia (2007) even if it had the song "why can't we be friends", resulting in a friendship between Jess Aarons and Leslie Burke before her death. - playstationfan66

5 Mean Girls

I like this movie, even though I don't like Lindsey!

Karen: "If you're from Africa, why are you white? "
Gretchen: "Oh my god Karen you can't just ask people why they are white"

6 Superbad

Also one of the most quotable movies of all time. "There's no first or last name, it just says McLOVIN! - Graham

7 Heathers

Heathers the Original Mean Girls

I love this movie. Also, this should be above Mean Girls because Mean Girls was based off Heathers. Heathers is an amazing, quirky but funny movie that you need to watch.

Yes times 1000. No other movie shows a bunch of murderous teens, so this is an obvious win.

Love the movie and musical! - Okochama-san675

8 American Pie

An underrated masterpiece! -CandyBlood13

Haven't you all seen American Pie? This should be with The Breakfast Club!
This movie is about teenagers who will do anything to lose their virginity; overall, this is one of my favorite movies of all-time. - maarilynmaanson

9 Back to the Future

What is this doing at #10? This movie is great! It's funny, dramatic, cool, and it has some songs good enough to put on anybodies Ipod or other music player. I own the 25th anniversary edition trilogy with all three movies, digital copies for each one, and a bonus disc. That's how much I love the movie, or should I say all 3 movies - booklover1


10 Clueless

Had it on Blu-ray and DVD. - playstationfan66

The Contenders

11 Carrie
12 Easy A
13 Grease

An all time classic incredibly funny movie.

14 The Perks of Being a Wallflower

One of the best high school movies ever.

It should be at number.1 position when ithas such a hot and cute actor in it aka Logan Lerman

GO FIND IT ON BLU-RAY OR DVD! - playstationfan66

15 10 Things I Hate About You


16 Donnie Darko

One of the best movies ever

17 She's All That
18 Sixteen Candles
19 Some Kind of Wonderful
20 Rushmore
21 American Graffiti
22 Napoleon Dynamite

What the hell? This movie is at the very bottom of the list! This movie most people love - so baffling!

23 Get Over it
24 Jennifer's Body
25 High School Musical

All three movies are great. They have music and nice actors. They portray stuff every teenage goes through- peer pressure, love, friendship, school clubs and graduation (leaving friends and all... )

Don't forget puberty. Aimed towards teenage girls and such. Love this film! - DynastiNoble
