How about a Cartoon about kids in private school

Whenever a cartoon staring kids/teenagers in school shows up, it's almost always the same public school setting with lockers and cafeteria's galore. Well, what about a cartoon where the kids instead attend a private or catholic academy? With uniforms and whatnot. It'd be an interesting change of pace from the typical school settings we usually see in western animation.

Nah, school is pretty lame as a setting, no matter where or what it is. I prefer less cartoons continue relying on it, going forward. Some of my favorites in general (without saying examples) know NOT to spend too much time in said setting, no matter what type of school it is as well, honestly.

Also, how exactly would you make this show and actually sell it to the target audience, without them getting bored and complaining after too long??? Show us and explain, please.

I’ve been to private schools almost my whole life. There wouldn’t be much of a difference. And Billy and Mandy went to a school with uniforms. They had them in Into the Spider-verse too, and that was a private school. Even the current Spider-Man Cartoon has Peter in a private school.
They don’t really add enough plot-wise to the series that’ll be different if they went to a public school.

I remember Gordon Korman, the author of the Bruno and Boots books, coming to my school in middle school, and when he was asked why he set the series in a private school instead of a public school, he said one reason was that so we wouldn't always be seeing relatives of the students. That's probably one advantage a private school setting has over a public school one.

Before I forget, I wish a happy 52nd birthday to Lara Jill Miller, known for roles such as Clifford on Clifford's Puppy Days, Juniper Lee, Allie on Curious George, Widget on Wow Wow Wubbzy, Lambie on Doc McStuffins, Lisa Loud on The Loud House, and Henry Hugglemonster.
Five years into this Star Wars revival and the most interesting homages/ripoffs we've gotten are...Disgaea 5 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. I'm including official Star Wars media in this estimation.
Why is it that the only new cartoons that are able to take off in internet circles nowadays are huge serialized epics? Infinity Train is like the only new CN show this year that will get any attention, despite Craig of the Creek and Victor & Valentino existing.
I feel like taking a break here. Not much, if anything, going on that interests me, and I'd like to do some self-reflecting, or something like that.
RedLetterMedia's The Nerd Crew is unironically the best series on YouTube.
