High School High (1996)
Moby Dick. A Tale of Two Cities. Don Quixote. These are classic works of literature that today two out of every three high school students do not even recognize. Okay, so three out of three. Of course, that''s not so bad though when you realize that none of them can identify where Canada is, either. To idealistic Richard Clark, however, everyone in school has the deep-rooted ability to be a top student and there''s no such thing as a bad kid. That''s why he''s quit his job teaching at a posh academy and moved to a tough inner city high school. It''s his strongest belief that these kids should be allowed to have the very same experiences that all people have in high school--dating, going to proms, begging for sex, etc.
