Funny School Names

I’m sure these are all fine institutions of learning, but their names are a bit unfortunate!

First, we have the historic Governor Dummer Academy in Massachusetts.  They’ve actually changed the name to The Governor’s Academy.  I guess the governor just couldn’t take the teasing anymore.


Next we have the Porny School in the UK.  Their web page says they offer a “stimulating community environment” … stimulating, indeed! ;)

Mom, don’t make me go back to school — it’s In(h)uman!  Inuman Elementary School, Antipolo City, Philippines.

And finally, Goodenough College in London, where you can aspire to … mediocrity?  Why be outstanding when you can be good enough!

Is there a school with a funny name near you?  Take a photo and send it in!

Watch for more funny school, college and university names in Part 2!

    The Inuman Elementary School does not only admit the “inhuman” pun, but since it’s in the Philippines, “inuman” in the local language means “drinking”!
