Immigrant High

Immigrant teens face discrimination, language barriers, unfamiliar cultural traditions — all while dealing with the changes all teens struggle with. Many give up on school. Immigrant High takes us into the halls of Pan American International High School in Queens, New York, a school that aims to give its Latino students a place to belong and excel.
