Premiered: August 2nd, 2000
An Emmy award winning documentary series for Fox and PBS, that tracks the experiences of 14 seniors at Illinois' Highland Park High School throughout the 1999-2000 school year. Participants also chronicled their home lives through video diaries.
"The all-time best teen reality show -- and for my money, one of the best doc series of all time -- was the little-seen American High, which distinguished itself by not just having camera crews follow the subjects: The subjects themselves filmed the bulk of the footage. It only ran one season, which might be why its reputation is so pristine."
