180 Days

To educators, Washington Metropolitan High School (DC Met) is an alternative school with a devoted staff. To district leaders, it is a failure. To many of the school’s students, it is home — a safe haven from sometimes unsparingly difficult lives. Whatever one’s vantage, 180 Days: A Year Inside an American High School provides an intimate portrait of this fledgling school’s day-to-day stories, condensing a full school year — 180 days — into 2 two-hour episodes.
