    "If you want to relive your high school days then it's best to do it in the most theatrical/musical way. Who wouldn't want to relive their years of going to class or falling in love through musical songs. It is the best way to relive high school memories. I know that I personally relive all my high school memories as if I sand them all. High School Musical is a great way to do that on screen. "

    "Out of all the High School movies out there, Mean Girls really takes the cake. The film was released in 2004 but it's still one of my all time favorites, when Lindsay Lohan was still in her prime. Mean Girls is definitely the best movie about High School and I can definitely relate."

    "Clueless is a quintessential movie about the high school experience. The characters are cast perfectly and the story line is engaging and funny even if a bit trope-y. The romance between the teachers is very sweet as well."
