2Netflix has upped their teen movie game in 2019, and the results have been delightful to say the least — come on, you know you've watched The Perfect Date at least a dozen times by now, too. There's no doubt that the streaming service is reawakening our love for teen movies, and thankfully, this August Netflix has its share of unforgettable titles about high school, friendships, and first love tucked away in the service's vast streaming library. In fact, there are so many funny, heartbreaking, and downright classic movies about teens available to stream, you could spend the next few months channeling your 16-year-old self and swooning over Oliver James all over again.
From new favorites to '80s classics, these are the best teen movies streaming on Netflix right now. (And be sure to check out all the high school TV shows as well!)
