The current format (from episode 17) explores the high school concept where the cast members act as students in a classroom while the guests would come as newly transferred students. Most of the segments for this format portrays activities that every student would do with their classmates. Subsequently, the program would sometimes diversify at the end with a segment outside of the school concept. This format has received praise from the viewers which led to significant increase in ratings and popularity of the program after several episodes have aired.
There are at least two permanent segments, which has defined the Brother School format:
- Entrance Application – a segment where the guests filled an application form beforehand in which one of the cast members would read and the others would comment on them. A highlight of this segment is the guests preference on which cast members they would like or would not like to sit next to them.
- Guess About Me – a segment where the guests had prepared several questions related to themselves. Some of the questions are vague or extremely private in which the guests had never revealed to the public.
The episodes may also feature either of the following segments, usually within, in between, or following the above permanent segments:
- Second Period – a segment which usually comes after the permanent segments and varies between guests. In most cases, the guests made suggestions on the activities for this segment. It varies from counselling sessions, art class and physical education class.
- Let's Play – a short segment when the guests would challenge the cast members on a game, which the former are confident in winning, usually by unorthodox means such as on-the-spot rules. The guests usually end it in a challenge where they need to defeat every cast members consecutively.
- Three No's (No Concept, No Basis, No Script) – a segment which revolves around an ad-libbed skit where the cast members and guests were not given any dialogue or definite story line. They can only rely on the overall theme of the particular week's skit and their own comedic timing.
- Music Class (Songstagram) – a segment where the guests had created a list of songs with a specific theme of their preference. The segment focused on the cast members' effort in guessing all of them in the correct order. Hints, such as date of release, characteristics, or "Jonghyun's game" as it was introduced in ep. 29 by the late Jonghyun (Shinee), wherein the beginning syllable/note of a verse is given with its rhythm) are used to help the members.
- Lee Sang-min Time – formally introduced in ep. 56 and formerly called Choose Your Type, it is a short segment wherein the guests (usually the females) are briefed by Lee Sang-min to choose any of the cast members (plus any accompanying male guest) as their ideal partner. The specifications are that all members are "equal" in terms of legal, socioeconomic, & civil statuses; and that the choice is based only on their physical appearances and personalities.
- Dancestagram – formally introduced in ep. 57 by Chanmi (AOA), but in an episode with Psy it became a segment where PD play the beginning syllable/note of a song and they have to guess the title, lyrics and dance move.
- 99 Seconds Teamwork Competition – a segment which often used when a large group of people were guests on the program, such as idol groups. The segment varies each episode in terms of missions, but the members team and the guests must complete them within 99 seconds. If a team managed to complete them, the other team is given a chance to produce a better time record.
- Classical Culture Class - a segment is all about pop culture references to forgotten decades.
- Imagination Time - a segment which starts with a warm up, like drawing something from shapes, and guessing lip-synced words. The highlight of "Imagination Time" (Hangul: 상상력 시간) is Guess the Drama Line, the members and guests have to guess what is the next line of the scene from a drama shown to them.
A notable aspect of the show is the usage of the banmal (Hangul: 반말; "informal language") manner of speech used by everyone regardless of their age or seniority, thus disregarding the Korean language's strict seniority rules with spoken language and the sunbae–hoobae hierarchy in the Korean entertainment industry. The informal speech and casual setting also encourages the guests and cast to interact with each other as schoolmates often do, leading them to be comfortable enough to tease one another.
These episodes do not follow the Brother School format.

|Mental Victory Battle||14 - 16||It was a Talk/Game Show. It seemed to have emerged under the judgment that stable format was needed by calling two entertainers candidates who need mental victory and to play a logical confrontation and to select a winner. Because of this, it was impossible to escape the criticism that the old freshness disappeared and became a cliché. In one of the segments, they would begin with the "esteem up and down", PD show picture and guest should thumbs up or down then they explain their reason. After listening, host press the button for the person who has a better psych.|
