POLL: Which fictional TV high school was most like your real alma mater?

Which television show captured your true school spirit?

 
High school. For some, it was a highlight. To some others, it is thankfully in the rearview mirror. But we all have our memories of grades 9–12.

Television has captured every element of the high school experience. Whether you went to school in the big city or suburbs, whatever clique you were in, whatever the name was, whether it was public or private, whatever the team colors were — there's a good chance a certain television show brings to mind your own time in high school. It could be the setting, the teachers, the time period, the overall experience….

Whatever the reason, pick the one fictional TV high school that reminds you the most of your own life. We gathered our favorites from the 1950s through 2000s.

Then, see how popular your pick is. This is high school, after all.
  1. Pick the fictional high school that best captures your own experience in high school!

0 % I checked out McKinley High School from Freaks and Geeks because I graduated in 1981. My school was like that. We even had a male teacher with long hair and a Cheer that they did, How Funky Is Your Chicken, How Loose Is Your Goose, Now Come On All You Warriors, And Shake Your Caboose.

I was going to pick Walt Whitman High, Room 222. That would have been the closest, but I didn't see that selection on the list. That one would have been the most like mine. I only picked Highland High School because that was actually the name of my high school. I know that was only 3% and I only picked it because of the name.

Also missing from the list besides Walt Whitman High, Room 222 were Bryant Park High School (My Three Sons) and PIxley High School (Petticoat Junction).

I also immediately thought of Walt Whitman High, from the fabulous sitcom, "Room 222" (Sep. 17, 1969-Jan. 11, 1974).
In 1970, Room 222 earned the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding New Series, while Michael Constantine (Principal "Seymour Kaufmann") and Karen Valentine (teacher "Miss Alice Johnson") won for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, respectively.

70% similar. Now if there was a cross between The Brady Bunch and Welcome Back, Kotter schools, then you'd have it. Graduated in '77.

I got 0% similarity to everybody else🤣🤣😄😄😄😆😂😂😂!!!! Apparently, everyone who voted went to schools that were like from the Brady Bunch or Happy Days. Me, I grew up and went to high school in the '90s so the school that I attended was more like the high school in Boy Meets World. I also grew up in Suburbia U.S.A. (The perfect suburban town. It's not really called that.)so that's another reason why I chose John Adams High School from Boy Meets World too. But, since I scored 0% similarity, no one seems to remember the show Boy Meets World 😂😂😂😆😄🤣🤣😄😆😆😂!!!!!! You're crazy, MeTV. I love you but you're crazy😂😂😆😆😆😄🤣🤣😄😆!!!!!!

Welcome Back, Kotter was definitely like all my "basic" class courses...all the kids who just wanted (or were only able) to do the bare minimum to get by. Ah, the good old days...and you could still get a good job right outta high school!

None of these shows -- as far as I know -- featured a religious order who physically and mentally abused the students. My HS was not someting you'd see on TV unless it was exposed on "60 Minutes".
