We’ve compiled a list of so of the MOST popular movies about going back to school!

These movies are in no particular order so watch as you please.

Watching them will take you from elementary school to high school, to college and they all deal with the experience of walking the hallways of learning institutions (ok, schools, colleges, and universities!). We’ve got some classics that deal with students and a few that are focused on the teachers.  But they all deal with going back to school!
