I feel its because something that everyone initially can relate to. So it draws to a wide audience at the beginning and then varies from there. And as what was said, it isn't most but I must admit that a larger quantity of recent anime's have school life involved. It's all about supply and demand. What the consumer wants to see.
Kind of like back w/ Ranma 1/2, Rurouni Kenshin or Inu Yasha a lot of anime's had involvement in the feudal era. Whatever people want to see is what they try and give.

cuz most animes characters are teens and the anime is mostly marketed for teens... and school is a large part of a teens life... real and anime alike...... its kinda weird to have anime about teens who arent in school now isnt it.... so most animes with teens involve school in some way.... mainly as a way for the teen characters to interact and drive the story along.... i mean how could you have a story with mostly teens without providing a place like school for the characters to interact.....

edit: thinking about it some more.... most animes arent "school anime", especially teen anime, they simply use school as a plot device cuz they ARE teens and teens go to school so yea u get the point.....

probably because most of those who watch anime or read manga are school students.

i guess cause high school is the most memorable part of most of the people that is why its most connected on most of the people,like first love, kiss first hair in the armpit, and soon, that is why they use high school most of the time, in my observation I'd say...

It's simple really. It's all about simplicity. By making a school manga/anime the formula is already there for you, so you dont have to do any real thinking. You have a boy not popular but not hated (for the most part.) and give him a slightly abusive childhood friend. Then add in a school idol who is either really stuck up or seems to be the perfect girl (no exceptions!!!!!) Next you're going to want to give him a junior girl. This girl is either going to be a lolita, really aggressive (at trying to obtain the main character.), or has big boobs. Then the last necessary girl is the transfer student, her beauty compares to the school idol. Some other notable female types are the sporty girl and the smart girl. Now you're going to either have him go for the childhood friend or the new transfer. Add in some panties-shots and a few boob touches and you have a brilliant anime. Other than that, school anime provide you with a scenery you can relate to for the most part. Easily adds in rivalry and romance, no matter what you anime is about. It's basically a easy tool to start any form of entertainment.

*Also note that the idol and the transfer student will usually have medium to large boobs*

BTW this is a joke for the most part.

hmmm... I think its because teens watch more animes... so they made an anime with a school genre so that teens can relate to the situation and maybe to increase its popularity coz teens love that genres... ^_^
