In the past few years, several amazing TV series about high school have been made. These shows are often more relatable to teens than other shows, yet just as fascinating and fun to watch as adult shows. If you're looking for a great TV series about high school, check out the shows on this list and see if you don't love them!
"Daria" is one of my favorite TV series about high school. The MTV cartoon depicts the life of one miserable Daria Morgendorffer. Her cynical outlook on high school culture and the world as a whole is positively hilarious! If you enjoy sarcastic humor, this is the TV show for you!
For musical lovers, "Glee" is a high school TV show you must watch! But even if you generally dislike musicals, you still might enjoy this touching, funny, and brilliantly-cast show. There is someone on "Glee" for everyone to relate to, as it features a diverse cast. While in a sense the show is all about singing, it is also all about building friendships, strengthening and overcoming romantic relationships, being true to yourself, and accepting one another.
3. The Carrie Diaries
"The Carrie Diaries" is the prequel to "Sex in the City," a series you might have wondered at when you were younger and your mom watched it religiously. Well now, for the younger generation we find an amazing alternative! Carrie Bradshaw is an ambitious teenager who has recently started interning at a Manhattan law firm.

The show is fun and exciting, a must-watch for any teenage girl!
"Victorious" is one of Nickelodeon's best-made shows in my opinion. The show features the extremely talented Tori Vega who, at the beginning of the show, earns a spot in an L.A. school of the arts. The series then shows her high school experience among an eclectic group of artistsfrom singers, to musicians, to ventriloquists! Additionally, the show is filled with humorous drama between Tori and her sister, friends, and crush.
5. Boys over Flowers
"Boys Over Flowers" is a Korean drama about a group of four wealthy friends who essentially rule their elite private school, Shinhwa High. When a girl, Geum Jan-di, receives a scholarship to attend the school, the other students greet her with relentless bullying.

The show is filled with romance, drama, and even some action! It will surely have you addicted after just one episode!
So far, "Twisted" has only run for one season, but that single season was intense and unforgettable! The show follows the lives of three childhood friends, one of which has just been release from juvenile hall for murdering his aunt. The alleged killer, Danny, comes back to the small Connecticut town as a total pariah, and his friends must overcome their fear of social suicide to talk to him again.

"Dance Academy" is a brilliant TV show that you will fall in love with after one episode!
