list of movies about students

I love movies! Movies set in school tend to be very inspirational. Sometimes they are just funny. They always give a nostalgic feeling and take me back to my own childhood. Here are my favorites:

    Do I have to choose just one? lol I like, Lean on Me, that was on the other day actually, Dead Poets’ Society, watched that in school and wished I had a teacher like that, Grease, nuff said, lol, Billy Madison, there’s no one quite as great as the Sandman (Adam Sandler), The Breakfast Club, classic. Okay, now that I have professed my love for them all I will choose one. GREASE!! I LOVE Grease. I know all the songs even without the movie to help me sing them!!

  5. Grease was my favorite. But then, a little older, I’d have to add Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Love your blog, from a fellow Mainer.

    I would say that Grease is my favorite of the list, but not because it was set in school. I love the music and would have loved to have seen the Broadway version.

    Number 8- Grease would be my all time favorite. I got DD1 and DD2 hooked by the time they were 5- it’s time to introduce it to DD3 & DD4. :)

    Grease was my favorite growing up!

  10. Mama Zen says:

    The Breakfast Club is a classic!

    AHH I have to pick just one of them? I love 3 of these movies and have seen them so many times, I can practically recite the movies in their entirety (only slightly exaggerating).

    Since I can only pick one, I’ll pick…. The Breakfast Club! {Grease & School of Rock are the others}.
