From Pre-K to Graduation, Kidzworld has the cheat sheet for the best songs about school. Pencils poised, and eyes to the front, because you’re about to be educated!

ABC :: Jackson 5

Well okay, this song isn’t really about learning your alphabet, but it’s still a great, danceable song about how easy it can be to fall for someone (as we all know!). It’s also the first song that really made the Jackson 5 famous—way back in the 1960s—and the beginning of Michael Jackson’s career. Who knows—maybe if you play it for your big back to school crush, they’ll be yours as easy as ABC, 123!

Good Morning :: Kanye West

Before you get Stronger, you have to actually get out of bed, and Kanye knows how to wake people up in style. This song is like that first big stretch you have in the morning—it feels good, and it means you’re ready to attack the day ahead. Kanye may have “cheated on every test”, but the album this is on is called Graduation, so he must have not gotten caught…

Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard :: Paul Simon

One of the best things about going back to school is seeing old friends, and meeting new ones. By the end of the year, you might be hanging with a totally different crew, but in September it’s all about forging friendships. It’s hard not to listen to this fun, upbeat song without thinking of a friend or two that have gotten you out of detention, helped you land your crush, or helped you pass a test you were sure to fail. We all have a Julio somewhere, right?

I Don’t Want to Go to School :: Naked Brothers Band

There are always those mornings where you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, your homework’s not done, and your parents are screaming at you to get up and hurry or you’re going to be late!! Well, the Naked Brothers Band must have a lot of those mornings, because they wrote a whole song about it. So if you feel like staying home in bed, crank this song at top volume and I’m sure your parents will get it.

Stick to the Status Quo :: The Cast of High School Musical

It’s hard to fit in, especially in school, and nobody knows that better than the characters in High School Musical. Do you have a hobby you don’t want anyone to know about? Love hip hop dancing or baking? You could stick to the status quo, but remember that some of the weirdest, nerdiest kids in the world end up being the richest, coolest adults. Just ask Bill Gates.

School’s Out :: Alice Cooper

The only thing better than the first day of school is the last day, and Alice Cooper (who was kind of the My Chemical Romance of his day) really captures the feeling of running away from school as fast as you can in this awesome song. “No more pencils, no more books, no more teachers’ dirty looks.” Thanks, Alice!

They just wear the uniform. When there's a no uniform day, it's basically a rainbow. Not a nice one, but an ugly one. CAN'T YOU BE A KID FOR ONCE?

Honestly I commented on this post a while back saying I liked ATLA but I feel like The Legend of Korra had more depth to it and was definitely meant for older teens, which is why I feel like a lot of you like it better. But the finale put me at a tie. I love both the shows equally.
