ABOUT THE CBC TV SERIES (Filmed in Kamloops)


THIS IS HIGH SCHOOL is a six-part series set in an extraordinary, ordinary school -- where teachers, led by a passionate principal, go the distance to prepare their students for adult life. But when you're dealing with teenagers, nothing is ever straightforward.

This fly-on-the-wall series captures the challenges facing both educators and students alike in a 21st-century public high school [South Kamloops Secondary School]. It delves deep into an institution that has a formative influence on all of us, and captures a moment of transition. But it isn't an expos.

Each episode, viewers watch as two students struggle with fitting in, falling out, exam pressure, peer pressure, first love and last chances, and other pervasive issues facing youth today. In the end, they overcome their challenges with the help of the school's tireless staff. The students always come out having learned something--and often the teachers have, too.

If anything, THIS IS HIGH SCHOOL is a love letter to teachers, celebrating the amazing work and downright heroism that educators bring to their job every day.
