Storyline

Carter Paysinger, a black student from the wrong side of town, lands hard at upscale, mostly white Beverly Hills High, and his friendship with Fenton, a Jewish kid with whom he has little in common. Years later, Paysinger becomes a coach, teacher and eventually the first African-American principal in the storied school's 80-year history. This perch gives him the opportunity to team with Fenton to turn around the school and help the community that put him on the path to success.
