Bokura ga Ita, Koukou Debut and Lovely Complex are both really good high school romance manga.
They both have a little something that makes them different from most shoujo, I think. I reccomend them highly..

Living Game is not set in school, but is still really great. same with REC. I love the character designs in these manga and the stories are original.
Dear Mine is also one of my favourite romance manga, but again, it's not set in school, and you might not like the younger boy idea.

I recently read Atashi wa Bambi and loved it, so give that a try if you haven't already!! It's set in high school.
Heaven!! is great, but it does have some "fantasy" themes, but you might give it a try anyways...

If you have read the super popular ones I guess you have tried out HanaKimi then, another similar one to it is Power or Girl Got Game which is a rather hilarious romance
Also try out Imadoki and Pretty Face
I have heard extremely good reviews about Perfect Girl Evolution and Hot Gimmick as well, you may want to try them

Pretty Face and PGE are really comedy not romance though.

Hmm... some ones I've read and liked:
Akuma de Sourou

The thing is, I've got a list of all the manga I've read, and I know a ton of them are the romance types... I just don't remember which name goes with which story

You might want to check out almost anything done by Adachi. Most of the mangas have to do with sports and love triangles in some way or another. Touch and H2 are two worth checking out.

Saishuheiki Kanojo - If you couldn't get enough of the anime, read the manga!
Ai-Ren! - One of the unpopular but really good written manga, make sure to get this.
Please Save My Earth - GOOOOOOOD!
Emma - Another one of the awesome romance anime.
Koi Kaze - Same as Saishuheiki Kanojo! It's a great written manga!

If you like romance with a bit of drama you may like Tsuiteru Kanojo. It's short, 2 volumes, so it may leave you wanting more. There are some very dramatic/touching scenes in this manga and it leaves you with some interesting thoughts on love. It's set in a highschool setting and it's not too well known, but there is a bit of a fantasy element, in the form of a spirit possesing someone's body. Regardless, this is a very good romance manga that you should definetly take a look at.

Pastel is very good, Yuu is just so hot.
Just some old fart passing by in the wind.

Yuu Watase makes perhaps the most cheesy and annoying shoujo manga.

I could only finish one of her manga (Imadoki) and none of the anime adaptions.
Her characters are soo irrational, the girls annoying, and the romances forced...
And believe me I tried to like a couple of them (was running low on anime/manga )

And... yeah well that's my opinion
