With my sixteen-year-old daughter doing her learning from the living room these days, I wonder if it’s going to affect the way she thinks about her entire middle/high school experience.  Thinking back to my own experiences, I…  would rather have gone to Hogwarts.  Heck, the fictional school experience of Springfield Elementary might even be okay, since I kind of resembled Nelson at younger ages and might get spillover respect.  Indeed, there are a number of interesting options in fiction, from Sweet Valley High to the Legion Academy, that might make for a wonderful back-to-school experience, leading to today’s matriculating query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) might choose the Xavier Academy, but only if I can be one of those sexy Jean Grey mutants and not a furry guy with fangs, asking: Which fictional school would you most like to attend as a student?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. I’m gonna say UA – even though it does have an unfortunate tendency to get attacked by the League of Villains.
