When Troy asks Gabriella to the prom on the school's roof, they waltz to "Can I Have This Dance". Throughout the musical number, the daylight switches back and forth from early morning sun to evening sunset several times, suggesting that the filmmakers spent all day shooting this scene and edited together the best bits, although clearly filmed at different times of day and causing a disjointed feel.

When Troy and Gabriella are dancing on the roof, the back of Gabriella's dress, just under her hair, is ripped. You can see the difference in a later scene.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

The drama teacher Ms. Darbus tells Troy to turn out the lights and to lock up. Any teacher would see that the student departed and see that the building was properly locked up. However, Ms. Darbus has great trust in Troy, and also knows his father works at the school. She trusts that Troy would lock up.

Plot holes 

When Ryan joins Kelsi in the music room during "Be With You" he looks at a piece of sheet music before sitting down and playing the song on the piano. However, this sheet music shown is only a vocal score and has no piano chords written on it so there is no way Ryan would've known how to play the song.

The trees have full summer leaves at the party after the basketball game. The weather would be much colder on a night after a basketball game in Albuquerque, which would have taken place in January or February or March.
