What school is it where someone walks around in a swimsuit?

Also, isn't it interesting that so many of the schools have big problems?  You can go to these schools, but those diplomas might not be worth much.

I was also a little miffed but not surprised to see that Knob Haven High from "Sit Down Shut Up" wasn't listed.  There aren't even any clips of the show on Youtube.  But a school where the teachers include Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Henry Winkler, Will Forte, Kenan Thompson, Cheri Oteri, and Tom Kenny?  Come on!

Here's the movie top 10:

Thoughts:  The stereotypes are off the charts here, the stoners in one movie look like the stoners in every other movie.  It's like a feedback loop.  They even do the same spit/swallow trick.

Also, have you noticed this difference, where on shows the teachers and students are more intertwined (to the point where there's affairs going on?) while in movies, they seem more separated?  No one's having a teacher's baby in the movies.
