(Newser) – The Los Angeles school district temporarily banned production companies from filming on its properties after an investigative report from NBC Los Angeles on Thursday revealed that a pornographic movie had been shot at one of its high schools a few years ago. Revenge of the Petites was filmed at Alexander Hamilton High School on two Saturdays in October 2011 and included public nudity during a car wash scene filmed in the school's parking lot. Three 18-year-old students even attended the porno's red-carpet premiere since it was shot at their school, according to a 2012 article about the film in British GQ. "They looked as if they were having the time of their lives," the article notes.

While a pornographic film being shot at a public high school apparently flew under the radar at the time, the school district is facing a new wave of outrage following Thursday's report. One school official tells NBC they were "misled" and never would have allowed Revenge of the Petites to film there had they known what it was. "We immediately notified the production company that it was banned from ever using district facilities again," says a district spokesperson. "We also demanded that the company remove any and all images depicting the school or its students from the film." The Los Angeles school district suspended all commercial filming at its properties Thursday pending further review but lifted that ban Friday, the Los Angeles Times reports. Commercial filming generated $10 million for the district over the past five years. (At least one porn site thinks pornography and education is a good mix.)
