About the Show

For many, high school brings football games, school dances, award ceremonies and senior pranks. But for some teen students in New Orleans, their reality - drugs, murder, gangs and guns - is much grittier. Enter the corridors of Walter L. Cohen High School, where three students and one first-year teacher reveal unvarnished accounts of life in an urban high school in the murder capital of the United States. From violent parties to threats against teachers as well as the tragic murders of four students - at least one shot by a fellow student - personal video diaries and intimate interviews offer a rare glimpse into life at Cohen High.
