The school used in the first three seasons was Daisy Avenue Public School, now called Vincent Massey Public School. At the time a private school was operating on the first floor, Degrassi was mostly shot on the second floor and the ground gym floor was used for the school dances and the science fair in one episode. The front entrance was also used when the private school was not in session. The school is located in Toronto on Daisy Avenue. The same hallway on the second floor was used in all the scenes that featured characters by their lockers, different camera angles and locker configurations were used to give the allusion of various different hallways. The Dundas street public school was used for the background shots and was also used in The Kids of Degrassi Street (1979). The school used for Degrassi High was a teachers college and is now part of Centennial College. See more »
Characters are shown speaking at the corner of Degrassi St. and Pape Ave (as indicated by the street sign). These streets run parallel and are about 10 blocks away from each other. See more »
Israel's TV station Channel 2 was looking for youth viewers in the mid 90's. So they brought several series similar to Degrassi.
My friends and I watched Degrassi JR high and Degrassi High and since we were the same age as these kids, we related to what they were going threw. Although they showed these seasons almost a decade after it first aired (and started showing here when it was already cancelled in the states), we still understood the charachters and enjoyed the show.
Joey Jeremiah was my favriote charachter and gave me a good laugh too!
