Whether high school or college, it set the stage for these memorable movies.

Not in any particulare order:

Back to School (1986): Rodney Dangerfield's funniest movie as he enroll in college with a dean named Martin which Rodeny kept calling dean Martin. Great supporting cast.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982): The most memorable charactor Mr. hand (Ray Walston) who is history teacher believe that everyone is on dope.

A Beautiful Mind (2001): One of director Ron Howard's best film as he strike a nice balance between reality and hallucination of math teacher John Nash.

National Lampoon's Animal House (1978): Although slightly dated, it launched the career of John Belushi, Karen Allen, Tom Hulce, and Kevin Bacon.

Paper Chase (1971): first-year law student struggles with balancing his coursework and his relationship with the daughter of a stern professor John Houseman who won an oscar.[3].jpg

Porky's (1982): Set in 1954, a group of Florida high schoolers seek revenge on a sleazy nightclub owner and his redneck sheriff brother for harassing them.

Legally Blond (2001): A very smart movie starring Reese Witherspoon who struggles to win back her ex-boyfriend by earning a law degree.

Breaking Away (1979): Fresh out of high school, four teenagers compete in Indiana University bike race. One of the best sport movie, and a memorable ending.

Thanks Hify and Worf for input :)

I am guessing Hoosier can also be on this list as it is in the same caliber as Breaking Away. Although most of drama happen on basketball court, Gene Hackman give an excellent performance as high school coach, and Dennis Hopper as town drunk and assistant coach.

IA couple of more I actually liked were...

"The Lords of Discipline"

"School Ties"

"A Yank at Oxford"

And a few more that escape my mind right now.

"Dazed and Confused" would be close to if not at the top of my list. But because it begins with the school year winding down before summer, I can see why it might not qualify.
