Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The High School A.U. is an Alternate Universe Fic that may or may not resemble the original universe, but the main premise is that most or all of the characters from whatever universe the story draws from are all in an academic setting (typically set in the present day). Usually, this happens to be high school, although college is not unheard of, nor is Jr. High/Middle, or even Elementary School, depending on the ages of the cast.
This type of story may also occasionally remove anything and everything unusual in the original premise, though this is not necessarily a requirement. This especially tends to happen when the cast is already comprised mostly of teenagers in a fantasy or sci-fi world.
This is the most common form of Alternate Universe Fic, for good or ill, mostly because it is an easy setting to write for, probably because a lot of fanfic writers are of school age themselves. Some stories may take a series that never took place in a school and transplant the characters there. A variant on this is to take a series where a school was part of the setting, and makes it the primary setting. Another variant is taking a show with characters that were elementary or lower grammar school age and transplanting them to a high school setting. A less common variant are the characters being portrayed as teachers rather than students.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })A rarer variation is to also attempt to transplant the storyline. This works better with storylines that are effectively independent of the setting.
This is especially likely to happen when the cast of a series functions as a Universal-Adaptor Cast.
A subtrope of Transplanted Character Fic. Compare Spinoff Babies, Coffee Shop AU Fic, and Modern AU Fic. Contrast Super Fic.
Not a high school in Australia.

In Shin Megami Tensei if... Atlus asks, "What if we took the post-apocalyptic themes and demons in our main series, and had them overrun a high school?". You play as an Ordinary Highschool Student who on his way home realizes his school isn't on Earth anymore, and that demons are taking over the school.

MapleStory has the Friend Story theme dungeon, a parallel world where several characters have counterparts in a South Korean high school setting. Notably, the AU is integral to the plot, as not only is one of the playable classes from that world (Kinesis), but the Heroes of the Maple World travel to it looking for information, because the Big Bad teamed up with his own counterpart to further his plans.

Law & Order: Trial by Jury. Given that these series don't provide much in the way of personality for their characters, except as relates to their investigation and prosecution of crime, the fic was essentially a regular, boring high school experience using the names of Law & Order characters.

Clone High is basically the High School AU of all of history. Though as the name implies, technically the characters are all clones of historical figures. The main cast are adapted to the high school archetypes (Abe [Lincoln] is the everygeek protagonist, Joan of Arc is a Goth, JFK is the jock, Cleopatra is the Alpha Bitch and Gandhi is the party animal), but a lot of minor characters act much closer to their Real Life counterpart, never mind the setting.

The Mighty Thor was scheduled to have one after his first movie, but it was canceled before it ever aired. It would've been about his adventures in Asgard before ever coming to Earth. There is a direct-to-home-video movie called Thor: Tales of Asgard that is based on a similar idea.

X-Men:
X-Campus is either this or a college AU. Same difference.
The OEL Manga X-Men: Misfits, which cast a few characters like Storm and Beast as young teachers, but made the rest of the cast into teenagers.
Pixie Strikes Back started out as this, but it gradually turned out that the whole thing was an illusion brought on by some weird mixture of demons and pixie dust.

Not exactly an AU, but Slayers NEXT and Slayers TRY feature fun little illustrations that bookend the commercial breaks, like a lot of anime do. Sometimes they actually pertain to the episode, but usually they're just fun illustrations showing what the characters would look like in a more modern setting. Favorites include Amelia the sailor-style school girl, Zelgadis the rock star, and Gourry as a daycare attendent.

The Nickelodeon Ninja Turtles reboot comes one year before the Michael Bay film reboot. The Turtles are teenagers by default, but Splinter is noticeably younger than he is usually interpreted, and April is 16 instead of being a working woman, though in contrast to the Thor example, the show began well before the movie began shooting, and was already on its second season before a single trailer for the film was out.

Shin Megami Tensei: Note that while these examples don't usually have recurring characters in high school (the series stars a new cast of characters with every game). They're still a high school spinoff in an Alternate Continuity/Universe of the main series.
In Shin Megami Tensei if... Atlus asks, "What if we took the post-apocalyptic themes and demons in our main series, and had them overrun a high school?". You play as an Ordinary Highschool Student who on his way home realizes his school isn't on Earth anymore, and that demons are taking over the school.
Shin Megami Tensei If inspired Atlus to create the very successful Persona franchise to appeal to the casual gamer market, essentially spinning off the spin-off. It deals with Ordinary High school Students, going through their school life, while summoning aspects of their personalities as they fight against demonic Eldritch Abominations called shadows.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann:
There is an audio drama CD set in a high school where Kamina is basically a misfit failing school, Simon is the sole handyman/janitor, and Nia is the Student Council President...until they kick all that to the ground like everything else and turn the whole thing upside down. Read the script here.
Gurren Lagann also has a second official High School AU in the form of the manga Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Guren Gakuenhen. All the good guys attend Dai Gurren Academy, which is located right next to the menacing and intimidating Teppelin Academy, headed by malicious principal Lord Genome. Note that all of the Beastmen are still Beastmen, and no one finds this odd. Highlights include Kamina getting very confused over the meaning of "moe", Yoko in a sailor uniform inducing Marshmallow Hell to Simon for three whole pages (while continuing to talk), and Viral dressed in a business suit (coinciding with the "Viral Marketing" meme). Oh, and Nia wears Rei's transfer student uniform (see below) and calls Simon her husband... and takes the Buster Stance. Plus, this manga sheds some insight into how Kamina and Nia would fare had Kamina not died before Nia arrived into the plot. Leeron is also in a dress and Lord Genome is the overprotective dad of Nia. Nia and Simon pull off a sequence very similar to Love Love TenKyoKen

Spoofed by Hiromu Arakawa more than once with Fullmetal Alchemist omakes. They usually involve Edward and Alphonse in a gang (not a very good one at that) or Mustang and the Fuhrer in a girls' school spoofing '70s Shoujo manga. Don't forget Olivier as a sukeban (member of a Japanese girl gang).

This happened in an episode of the Tenchi Muyo! TV series. Not content to leave it at that, however, the writers also threw in Magical Girls. Unsurprisingly, given the amoeba-like manner in which Tenchi Muyo split off alternate continuities, this world became a series all on its own. Two different series, in fact.

Attack on Titan has three examples:
A gag ending in the original manga has Eren waking up to discover that the entire series was All Just a Dream and that he and Miksasa are actually normal Japanese teenagers. Likely a Shout-Out to the Evangelion fake-out ending mentioned above.
A later series of gag endings puts the cast into a stereotypical American high school.
A Spin-Off called Attack on Titan: Junior High was released, though as the name implies, it's technically a Junior High AU.

A case of canonical high school having its slate wiped clean is one high school AU for Power Rangers in Space. The teens never had any powers, and the Red and Silver Rangers, (human) aliens in the show, were normal school-attending Earthlings here. Though the high school stopped appearing in the show for good around episode 8, which is probably the only reason the fic author could get away with it.

Neon Genesis Evangelion:
During Shinji's weird, freaky head-space thing from the last episodes, he imagines putting all the characters into an idealized version of his school — with twice the High School cliché tropes, and none of the Humongous Mecha. There are now three official tie-in manga series based on that setting, not to mention the fanfic on both sides of the Pacific.
The Neon Genesis Evangelion: Angelic Days spinoff is actually a subverted High School AU, as it is quickly revealed that all the Humongous Mecha and Ancient Conspiracy stuff is going on in this universe too, the main difference being that everyone's a whole lot less wangsty about it.
The other two Evangelion manga which fit this trope are Neon Genesis Evangelion: Shinji Ikari Raising Project and Neon Genesis Evangelion: Campus Apocalypse (which tweaks the formula slightly to age the characters a few years and put them in university).
There's the Super-Deformed CGI shorts and Yon Koma manga of Petit Eva, which is 100% gag-based. Unit 01 is now a delinquent robot in the same class as Shinji, Asuka and the three Rei Ayanami sisters.

Axis Powers Hetalia, of all things, has the Dating Sim Visual Novel Gakuen Hetalia, penned and illustrated by the author himself and later adaptated into a PSP game (not by Himaruya, though). Because what everybody needs is an AU where Moe Anthropomorphisms of countries who normally make up a Cast Full of Pretty Boys have friendly and/or romantic hijinks with a newcomer country, er, girl in the Boarding School of World. (Bad thing is that it made Seychelles, said newcomer country, horribly unpopular among the rabid and jealous fangirls who falsely accused her of either being a Mary Sue, "stealing all the bishonen for herself", or standing in between their favorite yaoi couples.) The Gakuen universe has been expanded in manga strips, and it eventually debuted in the Animated Adaptation. Among other things, it has France hanging with China and Turkey in the Gourmet Club, Estonia and Ukraine in the music club, Seychelles peeking into other people's clubs too, etc. It's specially "famous" for introducing Romania, who is a member of the Magic Club with England.

X-Men: Evolution premiered the same year as X-Men. It justified this with the concept that mutants (and super-powered beings in general) were thought by the general public to be nothing more than rumor, hoax, and legend for the first couple of seasons, and Xavier wanted his students to have as normal a life as possible.

Yo-Kai Watch has the Yo-Kai Academy Y subseries (Can a Cat be A Hero? and Close Encounters of the N Kind), which is a fusion between this and the Henshin Hero genre. The usual Yo-kai are humanoids and attend the titular school, and since they're already supernatural to some extent, the YSP Watch instead gives them powers.

Tokyo Mew Mew had a kindergarten AU in the manga, entitled Petite Mew Mew. Interestingly, the characters' natures as magical {{animorph||ism}}s were emphasized rather than discarded; for example, Lettuce/Retasu is a finless porpoise all the time, and has to be carried around in a fishbowl.

Act I of Wicked pretty much boils down to a standard College AU for the The Wizard of Oz, taking place at a university in Oz and featuring the Wicked Witch as a nerdy social outcast, Glinda as a Lovable Alpha Bitch, a then human Scarecrow as a popular, hunky love interest for the two, a big dance party at some point, and a song about being popular. However, Act II eventually rolls around and the play gets thrown into the original Wizard of Oz story, albeit from the Wicked Witch's perspective.

Some people have claimed that Star Trek (2009) is an attempt to do something similar to this with the established characters from the original series. The popular fan misconception is that all the main characters are cadets, when in fact only Kirk, Uhura, and McCoy are students (and McCoy is already a fully qualified doctor). The captain's chair is traded around quite a bit as well, although it's made very clear that Kirk's promotion is for the duration of the current crisis only. Of course, then he goes and saves the Federation and makes the jump from Cadet to Captain in one fell swoop...
This may be something to do with a supposed pitch for a Star Trek prequel film set when the original TOS cast were either Starfleet Academy cadets or newly-commissioned ensigns, which was rumoured to be under consideration some time around the turn of the millennium and may or may not have partly influenced the direction the reboot eventually took.

Re/Visioned made a Tomb Raider animated series named Pre-Teen Raider with the description "Lara Croft wasn't always one of the world's most successful Tomb Raiders. See how a twelve year old Lara honed her craft during her early years at the Croft Academy." Essentially, the Tomb Raider creators licensed a High School AU of their own game. It is seemingly impossible to find said series, but it is mentioned on the Croft Generation website here

Iron Man: Armored Adventures premiered a year after Iron Man, with Tony Stark as a genius teenager with a suit of armor, his buddies, and the Corrupt Corporate Executive who kicked everything off by having his dad killed. It's about as much like the Iron Man comics or movies as the high-school C.S.I. fanfics are like the actual CSI series, but it gets away with it by being totally awesome in its own right.

Batman Beyond's existence is owed to a bunch of higher ups going "Let's do a show about Batman in high school." The creators took advantage of the fact that they didn't specify Bruce Wayne in high school, so instead it's set in a Cyberpunk future where he's the retired Mission Control for a new Dark Knight. It became surprisingly popular and even got adapted to the comics, mostly due to being a lot Darker and Edgier than the execs had in mind.

This is pretty much a High School AU version of Nobilis, complete with Lord Entropy (whose soul-fragments became members of the Absurdly Powerful Student Council), Iolithae Septimian (possibly sealed under the Titov family shrine), and the Excrucians (represented by the Bleak Academy).
The first official mega-campaign for it, The Glass-Maker's Dragon, is by the author's own statements a high-school version of the Enûma Eliš.

Stargate SG-1:
They took this and made it canon by introducing a teenage clone version of Jack O'Neill, who promptly returns to high school. Although he's never seen or mentioned again, countless fanfictions try to explain what happened next. Some inexplicably decide to give the rest of the team mini-clones as well.
In the 200th episode, there was a scene featuring teenage versions of the team, in direct reference to this trope. Joe Mallozzi said in his blog that O'Neill's clone, after graduating high school, rejoined the Air Force and was promptly enlisted in the Stargate Program (now Homeworld Security) because he has all of Jack's experiences.

Even the creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender have gotten into the act, with their "School Time Shipping" video, though the bending is still all there. Their teacher is Avatar Roku, and Iroh is the guidance counselor.
The episode "The Headband" may also be a nod to this trope, as it places Aang in the middle of a Fire Nation School for little more than some Ship Tease and teaching the Fire Nation kids to loosen up.

Steven Universe has a meta example: Hilary Florido's promotional art for episodes she has storyboarded depict the characters, including the Gems as high school students (specifically, wearing Japanese school uniforms) with Steven as their teacher. Connie also seems to be the school librarian. These promos are only superficially related to the episodes they promote; for example, "The Test" has the student characters taking an exam, when it's actually about Steven going through an obstacle course to prove his abilities. Canonically, Steven doesn't even attend school; he didn't even know what it was until Connie mentioned that she'll be able to visit more thanks to summer break coming up.

Similar in the same vein as Gurren Lagann and especially the second ending credit sequence of Naruto, the third credit ending sequence of Eureka Seven skirts this, showing the female cast living out lives normal for (real) women of their ages (given that most of them are High School aged). It's interesting to note that this ending credit sequence was storyboarded by Shinichirō Watanabe. Yeah, that Shinichiro Watanabe (but not that one)

As stated above, My Little Pony: Equestria Girls takes place in an alternate universe where the characters are all human high schoolers. This means most characters have been aged-down (maybe), while others are aged-up (again, maybe).

The Adventure Zone: Balance has an extremely rare canon example! The Live in Austin! show takes Tres Horny Boys into a collective Dream Land where they and their friends are students at Neverwinter High. Notably, Angus McDonald, Boy Detective, becomes Angus McDonald, Teenage Detective, with all the same mannerisms as his younger self but a much deeper voice and as large muscles as Magnus.

Shin Megami Tensei If inspired Atlus to create the very successful Persona franchise to appeal to the casual gamer market, essentially spinning off the spin-off. It deals with Ordinary High school Students, going through their school life, while summoning aspects of their personalities as they fight against demonic Eldritch Abominations called shadows.

All Grown Up! is actually a television example of the latter, taking the Rugrats cast, aging them by ten years, and putting them in a fairly standard middle-school sitcom. Which, in the show, is still pretty much like High School in every other respect.

Mahou Sensei Negima! plays with the trope—since the original series already takes place (for half of its run anyway) in a junior high school, one of the spinoffs takes place in a kindergarten instead, with the students aged down and the (originally child prodigy) teacher and his best friend aged up to adults.

... and replaced with Ultimate Spider-Man just in time for The Amazing Spider-Man. USM has Luke Cage, Iron Fist, White Tiger and Nova attending the same high school as Peter Parker. While White Tiger and Nova are Canon Immigrants created for the show (albeit as Legacy Characters of existing heroes - the original Nova was originally a teen, the original White Tiger was an adult when he got his powers), Luke Cage (who uses his old Power Man alias in the cartoon) and Iron Fist are always depicted as adults in the comic books, with Cage in particular being much older than Spider-Man and Iron Fist not finishing his training until adulthood.

Code Geass:
Like its Internet rival Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Code Geass had a High School AU as one of its audio dramas. Unlike most examples though, the expected roles were reversed; Magnificent Bastard protagonist Lelouch is a teacher, his Lady of War sister Cornelia is a sukeban, and Big Bad Emperor Charles is the leader of the school's gangs.
Arguably, the manga adaptation with the same name as the anime also qualifies, since it focuses more on Ashford Academy thanks to the removal of the Humongous Mecha. The racist military faction is replaced by a racist group of students, and the Japanese rebels commit acts of petty vandalism rather than actual terrorism.

Marvel's Spider-Man was released at least a month after Spider-Man: Homecoming. It goes back to Spectacular Spider-Man's roots of a High School focused show. Peter Parker gets accepted into Horizon High (a high school version of Horizon Labs) and some of its top students (Anya Corazon, Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy), who are known spider-heroes, are as old and smart as Peter Parker.
Interestingly, a majority of characters have been aged down a bit and their brains boosted up. Otto Octavius is around Peter's age and already he got his doctarate and works for Horizon High. Alistair Smythe is a student a Midtown High where his father, Spencer Smythe is a science teacher.
Keeping in mind with the high school element, after Harry's wrongful sunspension from Horizon High, Norman Osborn created a new school for him, the Osborn Academy for Geniuses. John Jameson applied for it, a young man who is an ace in astrophysics, enforced by the fact NASA adopted two of his ideas. Herman Schultz (Shocker) and Clayton Cole (Clash) also applied whilst demonstrating prototypes of their trademark weapons.

In Granblue Fantasy, Lowain, Elsam, and Tomoi come up with one in the "L.E.T'S. H.A.N.G." event where the former two are students and the latter an instructor at Albion Military Academy. It's noted that due to it being a fantasy of theirs and not having the full details from Katalina, there are discrepancies from reality. The "Table for Six" event adds Sutera and Korwa as students and Isabella and Jin as faculty members.

Young Justice gives several established DC superheroes cameos as non-powered high school students. Karen Beecher (Bumblebee) and Mal Duncan (Herald) appear as classmates of Superboy and Miss Martian, while Barbara Gordon (Batgirl) and Bette Kane (Flamebird) attend the same school as Artemis and Dick. Most notably, Zatanna (who is almost always depicted as an adult in the comics and other adaptations) is made the same age as Dick Grayson. Most of these characters received their powers / superhero personas sometime during the five year timeskip between seasons 1 and 2. They are now in their late teens and early twenties and affiliated with either the League or the Team.

The Private BEMANI Academy event features BEMANI musicians as students in a private academy, with a comically-middle-aged-looking dj TAKA acting as the principal. The event has you playing (platonic) matchmaker by getting pairs of artists to build up friendship with each other; filling a pair's Friendship gauge by playing their "home" game causes the graphic of the pair to change from the pair being distant to becoming best friends. When the pair's gauge reaches 100%, you unlock their respective collaboration song for play in all participating BEMANI games.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic:
As stated above, My Little Pony: Equestria Girls takes place in an alternate universe where the characters are all human high schoolers. This means most characters have been aged-down (maybe), while others are aged-up (again, maybe).
Season 8 of the main series has a slight school Genre Shift. In this case, however, the main characters are teachers, not students.

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha INNOCENT is a manga series used to advertise a Collectible Card Mobile Phone Game for Lyrical Nanoha...and it is unabashedly a Grade School AU. The magic powers have been replaced with virtual card games, and all of the non-human characters are now humans (except the familiars, which are just normal animals). We also have a good Precia and six other canonically dead characters that aren't dead.note seven if you include Gears of Destiny continuity.

This is canon for Dubious Company. The cast gets flung into an alternate dimension and needs to dimension hop to get back home. One of the dimensions puts them in an ordinary high school. Walter and Tiren lose their animal appendages, Mary and Sue lose their superiority, and Elly gets his manly hair back. The creators take the opportunity for a genre shift and Ship Tease the cast.

Ikki Tousen is itself a High School AU of Romance of the Three Kingdoms (as well as a Gender Flip of most of the characters). Naturally, this means there's official art of the Ikki Tousen characters in Three Kingdoms-era China (or something similar enough to excuse breaking out the Breast Plates).

League of Legends features a line of "Academy" skins for several champions (specifically Ahri, Darius, Ekko, and Vladimir, among others retrofitted for the line), which eventually developed into its own Alternate Continuity with its own minor lore blurbs. Riot has officially endorsed a fan webcomic called Academy Adventures, transplanting a much wider range of champions to fit the Troperiffic setting of Valoran High.

In a sense, the series was this to its predecessor My Hero. Rather than be about a salaryman taking after his inspiration while on the job, it's about a teen's life at Superhero School with his inspiration as one of the teachers.

Merlin has been described as "The High School AU of the King Arthur legend". Certain changes, including making Merlin and Arthur the same age (late teens, early twenties) and a loose interpretation of history, definitely fit the trope.

Mega Man: Fully Charged takes this approach to the classic Mega Man series. Instead of being a janitorial robot turned fighting robot after one of his co-creators goes rogue, this incarnation of the Blue Bomber is a robot high school student named Aki Light, with Mega Man being his evil-fighting alter ego.
