During the episode, Jackie mentions that there are thus far, four Star Trek films and two series. Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered in September 1987. Meanwhile, the fifth Star Trek film, The Final Frontier wouldn't arrive until June 1989.

And in that episode, Adam was holding a copy of Time Magazine with Reagan on the cover promoting the Star Wars initiative

Goldbergs creator Adam Goldber said he plans to end The Goldbergs with Adam’s graduation from high school. Yet says Goldbergs plans to stay in the 80s Adam Goldberg was born in 1976 and graduated in 1994

In last night’s episode, Die Hard came out during Christmas when in reality it actually came out in July of 1988. Even though it took place during the holidays. It came out in July of 1988. Also, Adam and Marvin were going to see Die Hard 2 but it did not come out until 1990. Adam said he was going to see “ Ishtar” and then bail. Ishtar came out in 1987.

They kind of cheated regarding when Die Hard first showed up on broadcast network television. Die Hard (in its "edited for television form") was first broadcast on the Fox Network in 1991.

Also, at the beginning of the episode, Murray and Pops were watching The All-new Dating Game which premiered in 1986 and Adam was wearing an [I]Airplane[I] t-shirt which came out in 1980 and the show crossed over The Wedding Singer which was set in 1985.

It's pretty save to assume that Schooled is going to use the same loose-floating timeline as on The Goldbergs. The pilot episode mentioned Zima, which was introduced in 1993. A song that was predominately "Today" by the Smashing Pumpkins was released in September 1993. The pilot seems to imply that what happens takes place roughly just before 1994 since it's implied that Kurt Cobain was still alive (he would commit suicide in April 1994).

Matt Ryan would not be in high school until the fall of 1999. He was born in 1985.

And the second episode revolved around the plot of the movie, "She's all that," which didn't come out until 1999, not long before the whole Y2K thing.

So, I assumed from the pilot that it takes place in the early to mid-90's. But apparently, it's just 1990-something. Like the Goldbergs, only the following decade.

Yes and as I stated. Matt Ryan was born in 1985 and would be a freshman in high school in 1999. There were imac’s in the classroom. They would come out in 1998 and Glasscott was showing a scale model of their new computer lab which had imac’s Galore. There was an early 90s model computer in glasscott’s office.
