Despite the excruciating temperatures, summer break is coming to a close and the school year is beginning. High school is such a defining period in any teenager’s life that Hollywood directors have shot countless movies set in their halls. John Hughes and the Brat Pack  are notable for some of the most iconic movies about American teenagers, but the genre has touched on all aspects of high school life. My high school days have come and gone, but I still nurture a deep appreciation for all movies set in high schools. (In fact, I think I love them more now that I don’t actually have to go to school myself the next day!)
If you are feeling nostalgic about high school, getting ready to start school, or trying to convince your summer-obsessed teenager that high school is necessary, browse the HCPL catalog and request a movie today!
