Go to the Head of the Class is a roll-and-move board game originally published by Milton Bradley (now owned by Hasbro) and currently in production by Winning Moves USA. The game was originally released circa 1940 and remains in print today.[1]

The board is designed to look like a school classroom with the teacher's blackboard at one end.[2] Original tokens were cardboard images of adult and children affixed to wooden or plastic bases. Players advance to the "head of the class" by moving from desk to desk while answering questions.[2] The game also includes random "chance cards" that add or subtract positions without having to answer a question, such as "Put away that peashooter and go back 3 desks" or "For good penmanship, advance two desks".
