YAM’s Top20 High School Movies

In honor of Heathers being chosen as the LAMB Movie of the Month [1], we asked the YAM Magazine team to vote for their favorite films depicting high school life. From a selection of nearly 100 movies about high school, from all over the world, and quite different movie eras, the 100 films that were on the list were as varied as a teen rom-com can be — from a horror movie to a musical…

So without further ado, here are the 20 flicks that got the most votes:


These are the films from #20 to #11 that got the same number of votes, ordered by name.
