10. Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone

Maybe you’re going away to boarding school. Maybe you’re just trying to find a place to fit in. Maybe you’re a wizard. Whatever your back to school journey entails, Harry Potter has got you covered.

9. Varsity Blues

Back to school means it’s time for football! If you’re not into the typical feel good story about a high school sports team, look to Varsity Blues. It has an emo James Van Der Beek, whipped cream bikinis, and a teacher who strips on the side.

6. The Breakfast Club

What’s that about John Hughes? Oh yeah, he’s the king of school movies. Whether you’re a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess or a criminal – there’s something you’ll love about the Breakfast Club.

5. Peggy Sue Got Married

What if you got transported through time and ended up back in high school. Would you do everything the same? Would you still marry Nicolas Cage? If he’s anything like the Nic Cage in Peggy Sue Got Married you would! He’s a crooner who says ‘wang’. What’s not to love?

4. 10 Things I Hate About You

This is the most romantic movie on this list. If you don’t think Heath Ledger singing over a PA system is adorable, then you’re dead inside. Yes, it starts as a bet, but through the laughs and tears a real love develops. Who wouldn’t want to experience that in high school? Oh, and baby Joseph Gordon Levitt is there too.

3. Clueless

Not everyone went to a Beverly Hills High School in the 90's, so we live vicariously through Clueless. And with good reason! It’s a perfectly cast, perfectly executed movie full of lines you can quote with your friends for years to come!

2. Back to School

If you haven’t watched Back to School you are missing out. This movie is basically what paved the way for Billy Madison but it involves Rodney Dangerfield embarrassing his son at college with goofy pranks so it’s a million times better. Oh, And it has a baby faced Robert Downey Jr. with purple hair and fantastic outfits.

1. Grease

There is no greater back to school movie than Grease. It has everything. Summer romance? Check. New kid in school? Check. High school cliques? Check. Dances? Check. Makeovers? Check. It covers the entire school year and ends with a flying car. You’re welcome.
