Continuity mistake: Both Jason and Chad, who are wearing blue shirts and white aprons, are serving burgers, when Troy tells Chad that he wants Swiss cheese on his burger. Next shot in the kitchen, when Chad hands that burger to Zeke to add the Swiss, behind him Jason has been on kitchen dish duty wearing the green tee and blue apron. He can't be in two places at once.
Continuity mistake: After Fulton gives the group their staff assignments in the kitchen, during "Work This Out" there are table order tickets hanging over the grill and fry stations. In some consecutive shots the amount goes from three to one, to three, to one, back to three, etc.
Continuity mistake: At the start, when the camera pans through the doorway of Ms. Darbus's classroom, Zeke sits on a tall stool that is about 3 feet high. Oddly enough, in the following shots, the munchkin stool he now sits on only reaches the height of about 1 foot. (Did they really think we wouldn't notice?) The wood stool also moves forward a few feet.
Continuity mistake: During "All For One" at the pool party, mid-song the six singers split up into two groups of three - two girls and a boy and two boys and a girl; Sharpay, Troy and Chad walking down to their right (viewer's left) and Ryan, Gabriella and Taylor walking down to their left (viewer's right). Next shot, still singing and walking down, the three girls are walking to their left and the three boys are walking to their right.
Continuity mistake: At the start, when the camera pans through the doorway, as Ms. Darbus speaks on the 'stage', there is nothing between Zeke and the doorway. In the next shot, a tall wood stool appears out of nowhere right beside Zeke. Also, the height and structure of the stool he is sitting on changes.
Continuity mistake: In the Lava Springs kitchen, Kelsi holds up a dish towel, when they sing, "Maybe there's a better way to fix this greasy mess," and she drops the towel. The towel repeatedly moves around from the cart's bottom shelf, to the floor and disappears repeatedly throughout the scene.
Continuity mistake: When Miss Darbus speaks before the bell rings, there are two lamps, a cushioned chair and a small table, with a skull and teacup atop it, beside her. When the bell rings they all disappear from the platform. But note that when Chad dances with Ms. Darbus, one of the 'vanished' lamp's reflection is visible on the giant clock.
Continuity mistake: The shadows of the players during the baseball game change from shot to shot; sometimes they are behind the players and others they are in front of the players. Even though shadows change positions during the course of the day, this is too rapid and out of sequence for a normal afternoon.
Continuity mistake: During the scene when Troy is teaching Sharpay on how to golf after Troy leaves Sharpay puts one golf ball on the ground. The next shot on the close up of the golf ball you see that two other balls have shown up behind the club. Then when she hits the ball it's back to one.

Continuity mistake: Before "Gotta Go My Own Way" in the kitchen scene, the bracelet on Gabriella's wrist is on her right wrist, but when she goes out to confront Sharpay, her bracelet is now on her left wrist. It stays on her left wrist until she gets to the lockers, then her bracelet is back on the right wrist and stays that way throughout the rest of the song.

Continuity mistake: Having just arrived at Lava Springs, when Sharpay is about to initialize the first flier, Ryan takes another with his left hand as he holds the sunglasses in his right hand. In the close-up, as Sharpay signs her initials Ryan hands her another flier with his right hand, but in the third shot, Ryan still holds his sunglasses in his right hand as he hands his sister a flier with his left hand again.
Continuity mistake: During 'Work It Out', when Troy taps on the pans with the spoon the blonde Wildcat cheerleader walks behind him, in front of the stove. Just as another Wildcat (played by Charles Klapow, the choreographer) dances across the screen with a broom, the entire back of the kitchen is in view and she is gone. Then when it cuts to the close-up, the blonde Wildcat is back by the stove.
Continuity mistake: In Troy's kitchen, when he's on the cell with Fulton, in the front shot Zeke puts down a half eaten apple and holds a carrot in his right hand with an empty left. In the side shot, he holds an apple in his right hand and a water bottle in his left, but next front shot it's the same as the first shot.
Continuity mistake: When Mr. Evans shows up in the helicopter, its blades are still spinning at a fast clip when he exits in the close-up. Problem is, the blades are not creating the distinct whirling shadow (nor is there any wind caused by the blades) on the surface of the red chopper, that we see in the two wideshots.
Continuity mistake: When Sharpay, Ryan and the three Sharpettes sit on their chaise lounges before "Fabulous" there are three large umbrellas behind them and a table with Sharpay's imported ice tea on it. It all disappears during the song; additionally, their large brightly colored bags and magazines move as well.
Continuity mistake: During 'Work It Out', Gabriella grabs the large gold cookie tray from the side rolling cart and turns with it (couple of shots after she clinks the glasses), but next shot she grabs that gold tray from the bottom shelf of the large prep cart. What's particularly funny about that second shot is the fact that the gold tray was never on that prep cart's bottom shelf until later on in the scene, after Troy taps on it.
Continuity mistake: During I don't dance after the dance with the bats and then Chad's group comes in they throw or do something to the bats the next shot they are gone and then you don't see the bats for some time and then after some time they come back BUT there are not enough bats for the team.
