Rotten School is a children's book series by R. L. Stine concerning the adventures of children at a boarding school. Each book is written from the perspective of Bernie Bridges, a fourth-grader who lives in his dormitory at Rotten School with his pals Feenman, Crench, Belzer, Beast, Chipmunk, Nosebleed, Billy The Brain and others. Their rivals are Sherman Oaks, a rich spoiled brat, and his buddies Wes Updood and Joe Sweety, from the Nyce House dormitory. Bernie has a crush on a girl by the name of April–May June. Bernie tries to earn money by many means, by selling stuff, stealing from his friends and making bets. Unlike R. L. Stine's other works, Rotten School does not contain themes of horror.

Rotten School is different from much of R. L. Stine's other famous series in that it is not a horror series, but rather a light-hearted comedy.
Rotten School movie
At the March 2010 Reading Festival, a boy asked Stine, "Will you be making more Rotten School books?" to which Stine replied saying, "No, but I'm planning on making a Rotten School movie."
