Common Sense Media: Best Back-to-School Movies

'High School Musical' (2006)

Ages: 8+

Synopsis: A modern-day "Grease" for tweens.

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this made-for-TV movie is hugely popular with tweens — and has spawned its own marketing empire, from CDs to clothes to video games. Its sanitized depiction of high school may not ring true to older teens, but tweens will get strong messages about acceptance and being true to yourself — as well as about supporting your friends when they want to try something new. A father-son relationship is tested when the boy asserts his independence, and there are some near-kisses between the lead couple, but overall this is tame stuff. —Common Sense Media (Photo: Disney)
