While I personally would enjoy a school where every lesson is interrupted by a sudden musical number, I'm sure 99% of the non-theatre loving populace would decidedly not. Plus, East High has got to have the least effective basketball team ever. Look at them! You don't need jazz hands to dribble the ball! {Photo Credit: Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures}

Dealing with high school cliques is challenging enough, but what really gets me is the sappy detention philosophy. You ditch one class and suddenly you have to wax existentially on your innermost self? Can't I just sit here and doodle for four hours? {Photo Credit: Universal Pictures}

Meryl Streep? As a strict nun? In a school with potentially pedophilic priests? Talk about the least fun school EVER. Shoot, I'd rather go to school in one of Meryl Streep's other movies. Wasn't Julia Child a lunch lady somewhere? {Photo Credit: Miramax Films}

The Rydell High of the original 'Grease' was great — music, dancing and a gym coach who specialized in physical comedy. The worst part of Rydell High: The Sequel? Michelle Pfeiffer. {Photo Credit: Paramount Pictures}
