Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

This series, produced by chef Jamie Oliver, 50 Cent, and music producer Chuck D, shows how mentorship and creativity can help reignite teenagers' interest in learning and working toward a better future. It also reveals some of the many obstacles educators face trying to meet the individual needs of challenging students.

Although Dream School offers very limited discussions about specific lesson plans or the causes and effects of student behavior, teachers may be inspired by some of the ways the mentors attempt to engage their students. But, given this school's unique approach to helping students find their passion, teens may also take interest in what they see here.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
