17 Reasons You Wanted Your High School To Be 'Sky High'

It was a pretty super learning environment.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... a floating high school populated by a bunch of attractive funny teenagers just looking to accept themselves while also learning how to harness their superpowers for the good of the world.

Prepare to feel old, but we first met the superpowered kids of this "Sky High" ten years ago today (July 29), when they burst onto screens and into the dreams of every bored-in-class kid in America. Unfortunately, though, no matter how hard we tried, our school could never be as cool.

Aside from the obvious having superpowers thing, here are all the reasons why you wanted your high school to be "Sky High."

  1. First of all, your school floats.

    No one angsts better than superheroes— except superheroes in high school.

    If there were smoke alarms, they totally would have gone off when this happened.

  9. Your fellow students appreciate your love of food.

  10. Which means lunch is always a good time.

    Creative solutions for being lazy come with any superpower.

  17. You get to band together with your classmates to defeat a villain trying to turn everyone into babies and sink the school.
