Some good school life anime?

I want to watch more school life anime, so can you recommend some? I try to stay away from Yaoi and Yuri...actually most romances if possible, which can be hard for this type of anime, but anyways, suggestions please?

    Some school life animes that stay away from romance of any sort...hmmm I think I can think of some:

    Bungaku Shoujo (literacy girl)

    Hayate no Gotoku! (Hayate the Combat Butler!): Though it's genre is romantic comedy, it's more focused on comedy and I highly recommend it.

    Minami-ke: this is also another really good school life before the show starts it even warns the audience to not expect much, because it's an anime featuring 3 sisters that live together and their everyday lives. It's underrated, but really good...try it out.

    Nichijou: It's airing right now and it's type of comedy is side splitting and random...though it didn't seem that good when I first read the synopsis, the first episode really made me laugh and it's now become really hyped up in Japan...the pictures are everywhere on Pixiv: site for sharing artwork in japan that features mostly anime.

    You can probably say the comedy is somewhat similar to Lucky Star, Azumanga daioh, and Yotsuba&!...

    Ookami-san to shichinin no nakamatachi: another can basically be summarized as a club that was formed to help others as a loan that has to eventually be repayed...and each character represents a character from a fairy tale so it's quite interesting.

    wow....i could basically go on with more I will

    Sora no manimani: another anime that's not very known, but I thought it was quite unique and interesting to create an astronomy club where they try to come up with some funny moments to talk about.


    Saki: an interesting anime about playing's funny how they try to make the competitions so intense while playing and even though I didn't know how to play mahjong, it was still fun to watch.

    Seitokai Yakuindomo: this anime is rated to be more mature, so if you don't like crude comedy that is often sexual, then I would stay away from this...then again I found this to be unique and funny. this anime is generally about their school's student it's very much school related.

    Seitokai no Ichizon: another anime about student council, but instead it has less sexual implications and more on parodies of other animes, and there's a repeated joke of the main character wanting to acquire a if you like harems you would probably like this anime.

    Kyou no go no ni (today in class 5-2): a comedy about the daily lives of elementary school kids...things can be random at times, but then again it's because they are kids, so it's perfectly relevent. This anime had been labeled to have romance, but then again when I watched it...there wasn't much going on....because they are kids that usually worry about which ball they had would bounce the highest XD

    and finally I'm done...hope that helped...and yah I understand you want to stay away from romance and yaoi and yuri, because I do too...which is why I have so much to recommend.
