The UK has thousands of public (private) and grammer schools which are ofen housed in magnificent buildings. The best of these schools are usually members of the Headmasters and Headmistress Confrence (HMC) or Independent Girls Schools Association. Many of these schools date back to beyond the 14th Century and some even date back as far as the 9th Century when they were monastic institutions.

Here's a good website offering a list of UK Private Institutions and their website, unfortunately most of the 240 HMC Schools and top schools are not listed but there are still some beautiful schools amongst them.

A High School stands between the mountains in the Northern Pakistani city of Gilgit. Enjoy the landscape from your class room!

Maybe someone else can post pictures, but there's a high school in Tacoma, WA that is in a building that looks like a castle, right on Puget Sound. The building is featured in all its glory in the movie "10 Things I Hate About You."

Here are pics from my high school. I went to Stuyvesant High School, a magnet school in New York City that you have to test into. About 20,000 people take the Specialized Science High School Test, and the top 800 scorers are admitted into Stuyvesant.

What I think makes Stuy so unique is that because it is built in the middle of Manhattan, on landfill from the excavation of the foundation of the World Trade Center site, there was very little room to build horizontally. So, they built vertically and we have a unique 10 story public high school! How many high schools have escalators in them?!

The most beautiful/multifunction school in Thailand as ever...!!
The Thai National Curriculum provides the foundation and structure for the teaching at all levels and ensures students may transfer successfully to and from Thai Schools and Universities. The high standard of Maths and Science teaching in Thailand adds strength to the Curriculum.

Satit bilingual school (grade1-12)











Now nearly finish!

And yes, this is the school where "10 things I hate about you" was filmed.

1800 students in grades 9 - 12. The school is currently going ahead with a $80 million dollar renovation. THe school has 4 floors, and 3 (i think) basement floors where the cafeteria is. The gym and pool is under the courtyard I think. You can find the floorplans at http://www.tacoma.k12.wa.us/schools/hs/stadium/

Feel free to add photos of your favorite school.

Here are some pics of SHS:

My favorite pic: the school overlooking the bay.

That's a cool school along with the one in lyon. Other schools shown are cool too. I first recognized it cause of the movie, but hey, it's got an amazing setting.
