Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Except for dated homages to Deer Hunter and Rebel Without a Cause, High tries to squeeze guffaws out of the crumbling educational system, not exactly gut-buster material."
‑ , USA Today
"One joke movie that's one joke too long"
‑ Clint Morris, Film Threat

"High School High has one or two genuine laughs with several chuckle-worthy moments peppered throughout, but this is pretty much a lackluster effort."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Strings together hilarious series of gags at the beginning and end, but in the middle High School High makes the mistake of having a story."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
