High School synopsis

What really happens inside the walls of an American high school? Famed documentarian Frederick Wiseman answers that question in this peek inside Philadelphia's Northeast High School, where the students constantly clash with the teachers, and the teachers wage their own battle against the administration. Delving into the everyday struggle the teachers face to discipline their unruly charges, the documentary offers a glimpse into the highs and lows at an urban public school.
