Springfield Elementary School: where you can be a fourth-grader for 26 years.

2. Sunnydale High School, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Bad news: The school is situated atop a Hellmouth and has a pesky vampire/mantis teacher problem.

Good news: You get to be friends with a cool British librarian!

3. Greendale Community College, from Community

If you're interested in spending six seasons and a movie studying Remedial Chaos Theory or the Aerodynamics of Gender, look no further than Greendale Community College.

4. Liberty High School, from My So-Called Life

It's easy to feel depressed at Liberty High, but Jordan Catalano makes everything better.

5. Jefferson High School, from Happy Days

Henderson Productions / CBS / Via

If you're a student at Jefferson High, your biggest challenge is trying to neck with your sweetheart without getting caught and convincing your parents to let you borrow the car for the Friday night sock hop. All in all, it's a good life.

6. Rudge Park Comprehensive School, from The Inbetweeners

Even someone as awkward as Will McKenzie can have quintessential teenage moments within Rudge Park's staunch British halls.

7. Lawndale High School, from Daria

MTV Animation / Via

There are many things to be unenthused about at Lawndale High. Befriend Daria, and she'll show you the ropes (that is, if she cares at all).

8. West Beverly High School, from Beverly Hills, 90210

If you're tired of normal high school hassles, like parking your own car and not having enough filthy-rich-but-surprisingly-down-to-earth friends, then West Beverly High is the school for you!
