8 Best High School Movies to Rewatch This Fall

8 Best High School Movies to Rewatch This Fall

Now that fall is in the air, it is the perfect time to cozy up to some classic flicks. High school movies are always a great go-to for me this time of year. There’s something about the fall “back-to-school” energy paired with the coming-of-age nostalgia that is so comforting. Here are my top 8 High School Classic Movies, broken down:

1. The Breakfast Club - Arguably the most iconic coming-of-age teen film of the 1980s. Featuring members of the famous “Brat Pack” who spend a fateful Saturday together in detention.


2. Mean Girls - Lindsay Lohan plays a naive teenager entering the fierce social hierarchy of high school. This movie is cast to perfection and is truly hilarious.


3. Grease - Good girl Sandy meets bad boy Danny in this classic musical about teens in love in the 1950s. A fun sing-a-long feel-good movie that you cannot help but fall in love with.


4. American Graffiti - This drama / comedy teen film looks at the world of cruising and rock ’n’ roll culture in the 1960s. So many (young) great actors, and surprisingly - written and directed by George Lucas (before Star Wars!).


5. Bring It On! - What do you get when you combine cheerleading, high school, and comedy ? The answer my friends: Bring It On! Kirsten Dunst gives one of her best performances as “cheer captain” in this peppy 2000 American teen classic.


6. Clueless - Hilarious, entertaining, and iconic 90s- Clueless is one of the best high school movies out there. The story follows protagonist Cher - a shallow and popular high school student who discovers her own feelings of love towards her disapproving ex-stepbrother whilst playing matchmaker to others. Fun fact: this movie was inspired by Jane Austen’s 1815 novel: Emma.


7. Sixteen Candles - Teen icon Molly Ringwald stars in this quintessential 1980’s Brat Pack film. The plot centres around angst-ridden Samantha (played by Molly) - whose 16th birthday is overshadowed by her sister’s upcoming wedding.


8. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off - This 1980’s high school comedy is a classic- even though it takes place mostly outside the high school ! It follows school slacker Ferris and his friends skipping the day of classes, in exchange for some wild escapades.


Happy movie watching ! :)
