Series concept and info

BBC Three`s new factual documentary American High School takes the audience across the pond to a South Carolina high school in the United States. The show is directed and filmed by Marcus Plowright, executive produced by Joe Evans and Neil Crombie and hails from Swan Films. Comprised of six 45-minute episodes, series one premiered on October 18, 2016.

The unprecedented access granted to the film crew leads to a uniquely revealing documentary series about the senior year in high school, as experienced at Orangeburg-Wilkinson, a predominantly African-American school. The last year of high school is a significant time, and is a fork in the road for most people. This compelling show captures the key moments such as homecoming, graduation and senior prom, as well as the ever important small details along the way. From teenage mothers to Ivy League hopefuls, the creators of the films did an excellent job in creating a multidimensional portrayal of school life.

Positive reviews and future possibilities

What does it mean to be young and black in the United States? It is tough, for sure, and while figuring out the future is rarely easy for a young adult, the issues of race and class complicate it further. The show openly discusses issues like school violence, problematic family situations interfering with education, future prospects considering the cost of college, social mobility, and a seemingly endless list of other crucial questions. American High School is getting strongly positive reviews for its honest approach, the respect and sympathy with which it treats its participants, and the hope which it instills in the viewers. Stay tuned, and we will inform you when BBC makes a decision on whether another series of this documentary gem is viable.
