John Adams High is a high school in which many of the characters went to from seasons 2 to 6. Eric graduated in season 3, as well as many others in season 5. Also, John Adams High had a limited faculty, where one teacher has many of the same students.
Only one set is used to represent the halls of the school. In season 5, the 'senior floor' is used by turning the set sideways. Cory and Shawn express fear over the 'other side' of the school, in the direction of the camera, saying that "you go over there, you might never come back."
