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

The game board is designed to look like a top view of 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 can advance to the "head of the class" by moving tokens from desk to desk as a result of answering questions correctly.[2] The game also includes random "chance cards" that add or subtract positions without involving a question, such as "Put away that peashooter and go back 3 desks" or "For good penmanship, advance two desks".
