"Blackboard Wars" centers on a high school tarnished by failing academic performance and stigmatized by a culture of violence. Granted unprecedented access, cameras go behind the scenes to follow education maverick Steve Barr and no-nonsense principal Dr. Marvin Thompson as they embark together on an unpredictable mission to reinvent and revive the struggling school. 

Throughout the series, viewers will witness the daily challenges the staff face as their students struggle with a range of emotionally demanding obstacles including homelessness, violence, drug use and teenage pregnancy. Tensions mount as teachers struggle to earn the trust of the students amidst intense scrutiny from the community. The staff must pull together as they strive to establish the new vision for the high school and provide a better future for their students.    

The series is produced by Discovery Studios, executive produced by Eddie Barbini and Jeff Kuntz.
