It’s back-to-school time, and no one could be less excited than my kids. I can’t say I really blame them; lazy days, warm summer nights, and swimming in their grandparents’ pool has made for one memorable summer.
But like all good things, summer fun must come to an end. As my kids look forward to going back to school with about as much enthusiasm as an upcoming flu shot, it’s up to me to remind them they actually like school! And since new backpacks and fresh glue sticks aren’t nearly as effective in boosting their back-to-school mood as I had hoped, I’m relying on the magic of movies to help jumpstart their school spirit.
So sit back, grab some popcorn, and take a break from the summer heat. We’ve rounded up the top 18 back-to-school movies guaranteed to rally school spirit for younger kids and older kids alike, right here!
