Whether you're currently in high school or graduated years ago, it's hard to deny that there are some pretty good TV shows out there that focus on characters who are currently in high school. Surviving your teen years as a student while trying to balance school, a social life, and your own hectic personal life is something that everyone can relate to, so it's no surprise that there are so many TV shows about it.
Whether it's a drama in which the characters need to balance high school with something else in their life like a pregnancy, supernatural creatures, or a mysterious disappearance or a comedy where they handle their problems with laughter, high school shows are pretty great.
