The kids of Degrassi street have now grown to be teenagers attending Degrassi Jr. High where they face the facts and problems that are typical for people their age.Written by

Earl Grey Senior Public School was used in the third season as Borden High School where the grade 9 students went to take their science classes. In real life many of the actors attended classes there and creator Linda Schuyler had taught there. The cafeteria was used in the episode Degrassi High: Season's Greetings (1988). See more »
Characters are shown speaking at the corner of Degrassi St. and Pape Ave (as indicated by the street sign). These streets run parallel and are about 10 blocks away from each other. See more »

What the world needs now is more shows like Degrassi
It's so neat to read the reviews from the United States, because I thought that it never went beyond the 49th parallel!
Part of Degrassi's strength was that it was so low budget. The non-slickness of it was very refreshing. They played the same Gowan song at every party... I believe the song was called "High Fashion Model". Anyway, It was nice to see realistic characters living in realistic homes with realistic parents.
Two fave episodes: The condom dispenser episode, and the episode in which Snake, Wheels and Joey attempt to gain entry to a strip joint.
Degrassi really was very valuable for talking about Issues Facing Teens.
Long live Degrassi in our hearts and in reruns on CBC!
