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!

“Save Our School’s” … Save our school’s what exactly?

Does anyone else cringe at misused apostrophe’s apostrophes? It’s not a school sign per se, but I couldn’t resist it for the irony.

I’m pretty sure that nothing that begins with “Consider the quadratic function” could possibly be fun!
