Trivia This movie was filmed at Central High School in Columbus, Ohio. Columbus City Schools had closed Central High, and several others, due to declining enrollment, after the court-ordered desegregation of its school system, which took effect in 1979, and resulted in many families moving to the suburbs, to avoid having their children bused to schools not in their neighborhoods. Since then, Central High School has been renovated, to become the new site of the Center for Science and Industry. See more »
