Storyline

Principal Steven Harper spends his days putting out fires, defending his faculty and just trying to keep it together.

I'm sad when I recognize the low attention to this great TV show. I think everything has some defects but as a mass, it is a wonderful series. I think that when the show lost Harry Senate it loses a powerful role that no one can fill in. that is the the most important loss in this show. I was so attracted to this great show that is recently ended in an Arabic open channel ( mbc 4 ).It is interesting to watch a real live drama about everyday life of Winslow High School. I was surprised about these losses in the great cast every episode that the producer thinks it is important for the plot to be successful!!! I hope you will give this show its true place in the history of American TV shows. Thank you.
