Galaxy High School

What was it about

Camp Candy

Aimee Brightower and Doyle Cleverlobe, two teenagers from Earth, have been chosen to attend the intergalactic high school Galaxy High School. On earth Doyle's the popular jock while Aimee is the unpopular nerd, but at Galaxy High the roles are reversed.

That opposites attract, is a common element in films and TV series - especially in romantic comedies or teen comedies. Galaxy High follows a proven concept in that respect. Doyle is successful on the social aspect, but terrible in an academic sense. Popular among the boys for his sport performances and popular among the girls for his looks and charm. Aimee on other hand is the nerd, who prefers studying over making social connections, making her loved nor cool. It’s no surprise both don’t hang out much together on Earth. But on Galaxy High as the only two humans, they must spend more time together than they initially may have wanted.

It’s hard to like Doyle in the beginning, because he’s not particularly nice. In the first episode we see Aimee and Doyle travel to Galaxy High. Arriving at Galaxy High Doyle thinks he’ll be just as popular as on Earth and sees Aimee as a nuisance, which he makes clear to her during the trip to Galaxy High. Still full of himself Doyle asks Aimee if she wants to go out with him, to which she joyfully answers ‘yes’ - not knowing that Doyle is playing a joke on her: Doyle namely wants to hook her up with a froglike looking alien. According to Doyle going out with Aimee is something he would never do, which he also lets Aimee know in uncensored words.

However, the tide is turning fast for both. With the introduction of Aimee and Doyle to the girls at school during gym class we learn that girls are the minority at Galaxy High. Given the scarcity of girls at Galaxy High makes Aimee special while Doyle turns out to be just one of the many boys.

At the introduction class from head dean McBrain Aimee gets a full scholarship and a new car for her hard work on earth and good grades. Doyle on the other hand has to take a job at the local pizza parlor to pay his tuition fees and will not have a car gets a skateboard to travel around. An additional problem for Doyle is that he stuck's at Galaxy High with no way to go bacck to Earth, so passing his grades is his only option to leave Galaxy High. The roles are now reversed. Aimee is popular and Doyle is the loser.

Although Aimee and Doyle of the earth come from the 80's, Galaxy High itself is a lot more futuristic. You move around the school via an airlock that transports you to your destination. The lockers are walking and talking robots with personality. Aimee's vault for example is a nice safe, while Doyle's is an elderly senior who is not is eager to service Doyle in any way. Flying cars make the futuristic scenario completely .

The aliens and science fiction elements gives the series an extra dimension. In essence it is still about students who differ from each other in terms of personality, but it’s the same trials and errors that every student undergoes. But at Galaxy High it’s just a little crazier because at Galaxy High you have the alien factor as well.


The series taking place at a school, which always has been a popular background for various children’s shows. The nice thing about these series are the stereotypical school where everyone knows a particular character or can relate to one. The popular kids, athletes, nerds, beauty queens, the gossipers, etc. In High Galaxy we see all those stereotypes pass by with the twist that all students and teachers, except Aimee and Doyle, are aliens.

Season 1


Doyle was a high school star.

Everybody thought he'd go real far.

But he didn't get a thing from the classes he took.

You know he just wasn't interested in his books.

Aimee was the smartest girl at school,

not very popular, not very cool.

Two kids will be chosen from Earth,

to go to school at Galaxy High.

Traveling millions of miles through space,

to go to school in a far out place.

Aimee is the sweetheart.

Doyle's got a lot to learn.

Here at Galaxy High.

Galaxy High, Galaxy High, Galaxy High, Galaxy High!


The series was created by Chris Columbus , probably best known as the director of the first two Harry Potter films. Galaxy High dates back to 1986 which can clearly be heard in the eighties inspired synthesizers and drum sound in the background music. Don Felder of the Eagles is responsible for the music.
