Beavis and Butt-Head

Highland High School is the place where Beavis and Butt-head sometimes go to school. In episodes such as Substitute, Beavis and Butt-Head Are Dead etc. it is said that they often skip school.


When they do actually attend, Beavis and Butt-head are always found sitting in the back of the classroom laughing and fooling around, instead of paying attention to the lessons.

The boys usually cause mayhem at the school by breaking things or messing around with girls or teachers. In Steamroller, they all but destroy the building after driving a steamroller they stole from Tom Anderson through the walls and down the hallways, causing major structural damage. With the exceptions of Mr. Van Driessen, Stewart and a few others, these antics have caused the duo to be almost universally reviled by both faculty and fellow students alike, especially various girls they have attempted to "score" with.

The boys ruined the school's reputation and funding.

Mike Judge lived in Albuquerque, NM during his high school years. Although he attended a private school he lived in an area which would require him to go to Highland High School should he have attended public school in Albuquerque.


  • Steamroller: Beavis and Butt-Head crashed a steamroller into the Teachers' Lounge, knocking Coach Buzzcut down in the process. However, the boys didn't get in trouble.
  • Breakdown: An unseen incident involving Beavis and Butt-Head left the Teachers' Lounge severely damaged.
  • School Test: The school lost funding after Principal McVicker cheated on Beavis and Butt-Head's tests; the same incident caused McVicker to fire Van Driessen to be put on investigation.
  • Beavis and Butt-Head Do America: Beavis and Butt-Head destroy the TV when trying to steal it from the AV room, which lead to them getting expelled. Later, the ATF charges in the school causing Van Driessen to be arrested, Van Driessen's guitar to be destroyed, possibly having everyone to get body cavity searches, and McVicker getting yelled at by the ATF and possibly arrested too. (Everything is back to normal after the movie, though.)
  • Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe: Butt-Head uses the "Fieldgoal 3000" on Beavis' groin, sending him flying across the gymnasium shrieking; Beavis' extremely high shriek destroys many science projects and Van Driessen's glasses, and culminates with the gymnasium burning.

  • In Beavis and Butt-head: Virtual Stupidity, Highland High School is one of the locations available in the game. This place also acts as the starting point of the game, in science class where Beavis and Butt-head must find a way to escape before exploring other places; they have to get past McVicker before they can do that.
