Re: Books about magic school

Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell
(young adult - more for older teens)
Well, it's not about magic school, but it's about a girl in college who writes fan fiction based on her favorite book series that is based on a magic school.

The Magicians: A Novel, and The Magician King by Lev Grossman
(adult fiction - definitely not for kids)
Like everyone else, precocious high school senior Quentin Coldwater assumes that magic isn't real, until he finds himself admitted to a very secretive and exclusive college of magic in upstate New York. There he indulges in joys of college-friendship, love, sex, and booze- and receives a rigorous education in modern sorcery.

A Great and Terrible Beauty (The Gemma Doyle Trilogy) by Libba Bray
(young adult)
It’s 1895, and after the suicide of her mother, 16-year-old Gemma Doyle is shipped off from the life she knows in India to Spence, a proper boarding school in England. What will her entanglement with Spence’s most powerful girls—and their foray into the spiritual world—lead to?
-- More spiritual magic happening than being taught magic

Gallagher Girls (series) by Ally Carter
(young adult)
Ok, again not magic, but it's a boarding school for spies. Similar action, sneaking around, friendship issues.

is totally awesome!
