Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that High School is a drug comedy about teen pot smokers who try to get their entire school stoned in order to thwart a mandatory drug test. There are no positive messages or role models here, and both language and sexual innuendo are extremely strong throughout. There's also some full-frontal female nudity. A scary drug dealer often threatens violence but never delivers. Several teens smoke pot regularly, and most of the characters in the movie are stoned at some point. The movie is aimed at teens, and it has an alluring subversive quality, but parents should be ready to put it in perspective and discuss real-life consequences.

Sexual Content

Two high school girls are seen fully naked, both from the front and from behind. A character attempts to seduce an older woman and fails. Almost constant sexual language and innuendo, of all different types.


Many threats, but no actual violence. Even in a scary encounter with a drug dealer, no one is actually touched. Sexual harassment between a high school principal and his secretary is quickly thwarted.


Nearly constant swearing includes countless uses of "f--k" and "s--t," as well as "p---y," "c--t," "c--k," "a--hole," "ass," "balls," "penis," "bitch," "hell," and "goddamn," as well as "Jesus f--ing Christ."

Social Behavior

High School's "lesson" is that teens can get away with anything if they learn to "loosen up" -- which apparently entails smoking pot and breaking all kinds of rules. In the movie's only positive vein, childhood friends who have drifted apart become close again.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The behavior in High School isn't meant to be taken seriously, but teen characters regularly experiment with drugs. There's almost constant marijuana smoking, and an entire school's worth of teens unknowingly eats pot brownies.
