American High School

In this six-part series, BBC Three has unprecedented access to Orangeburg-Wilkinson, a majority African-American High School in South Carolina.

It follows a charismatic principal and his students over the course of one school year and through their eyes we witness life-changing moments.

With the odds are often stacked against them we follow the class of 2016 over this, their make-or-break year.

We experience their highs and their lows as they prepare for life after high school. We meet Ivy League hopefuls, male cheerleaders and young mothers on a tough journey into adulthood. This is school as you've never seen it before and a unique insight into how it really feels to be young and black in America today.
