Celebrities, journalists, filmmakers, musicians, politicians, scientists, actors and artists will face their biggest challenge ever: to break through to high school dropouts. These kids are no fools and won't go along easily. Executive produced by Jamie Oliver and 50 Cent, "Dream School" asks, "What does it take to break through to teenagers and get them to graduate?" Pregnant, neglected or bullied; the students all have one thing in common: each had a life experience that caused them to take an unexpected left turn. Dream School's celebrity teachers will have one mission: to excite these young minds, reignite their passions, and get them to graduate from a real, accredited high school. From Soledad O'Brien to Suze Orman, Oliver Stone, Swizz Beatz, Jeff Corwin, David Arquette, Jesse Jackson and more - the faculty is famous and successful, and each is an expert in their field. But how will they perform as teachers to some of America's toughest high school dropouts? Will they succeed and change the course of these kids' lives? Or will they get schooled by a group of students who are unimpressed and unwilling to follow even basic school rules?
Dr. Mae Jemison and Soledad O'Brien return to finish up their courses, while the last celeb teachers bring their talents and enthusiasm to the school. Can Dream School succeed where traditional education did not?
