this actualy looks rather interesting. I mean based on art work alone I think its really rather amazing. I mean, if a idea like Clone High could exist and be a relative hit, I could actualy see potential in this if they were able to evolve it. Unfortunately itll probaly never see the light of day. Apparently it was cancaeled due to the recent surge of Batman related media and this got lost in the shuffle.  Heres the description and Concept Art.   
 

   "We all go through incredible changes as teenagers: growth spurts, bad skin, a sudden insatiable need to uphold justice and avenge your murdered parents…. Well, that is if you're Bruce Wayne.

As if being a freshman at Gotham High wasn't tough enough, Bruce's insomnia and technological fascinations are taking their toll. Instead of spending his time studying, he has begun to obsess over an emerging personality trait: Batman. But under the watchful eye of his guardian and steward, Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce is forced to put his intelligence to good use: graduating high school. But given his classmates, can Bruce survive Gotham High?    "

yeah, apparently this was gonna be a thing, but DC canceled production due to the icnrease in Batman stuff voer the past years. It got lost in the shuffle, and I think its a damn shame, i love exploring new ideas.

My first thought when I saw the concept art.
 
The art looks fine, but the story and setting is just off-putting.

I like the concept art, but ...no thanks. They keep wanting to use younger versions. Remember "The Batman" featured a 20-something Bruce. What's next? Batman Babies?

I think it would have been fun, I would have had our kids watch it to introduce them to the comics when they are older!

In many ways, it'd be a trainwreck. But at the same time, its just so appealing and has great promise for sheer entertainment. 
 
The more I think about it, the more I warm to the idea.

I think it would be in the match reality the Tiny Titans universe. I wonder if the band will play Adam West music during a fight.

If it didn't try to take itself seriously and was just something made for fun and more of a parody of Batman I could have enjoyed it but if they tried to make it some kind of deep teen drama bullshit.

Id imagine joker being the class clown that goes too far sometimes and has a constant rivalry with Bruce, which could lead Joker to try and sabotoge him on a constant basis. Clyface would be the Art student, Scarecrow the goth kid, harley t ... he ditsy blonde cheerleader, Posion Ivy the School slut, Penguin the spoiled rich kid, Mr. Freeze a "Cold" isolated dude that keeps to himself, Two Face the student council kid that has his own agenda, Catwoman who trys to get with bruce to either use him or something like that, Barbera Gordon is friends with Bruce, but might have a crush on him at the same time, Killer Croc the Bully, Bane the bully, but could be struggling with sterioid addiction (which could teach the kids why drugs are bad, mmkay?) Riddler the know it all, And Bruce Wayne the transfer student whos trying to deal with either his parents death, his place in the world, or just trying to deal with the madness of all thats going on around him at the school. Or all of the above. this could then at the end of the series help him to realize taking up the mantle of the Batman.    Of course, theres still ways for it to be tounge and cheek.

Looks more like concepts for an Adobe Flash animation series, along the lines of Gotham Girls or something like that.

The art is good but story is something I would expect from deviantart  fan-fiction. Seriously there are lots of high school versions of comics/mangas in deviantart.
