This solid reality series shows the inner-dynamics of a Southern California basketball team specifically put together for the 2019-2020 season to win a third state title. By following six principal players, It highlights how the students practice, study, travel, and strengthen the team bond. Through interviews with players, some of whom have moved from the other parts of the country to Southern California to specifically play for Sierra Canyon, viewers also learn a little more about their lived experienced, including how they are coping with, and making the most of, being a student at the elite prep school.

Viewers get to watch the team during key moments of the entire season. This includes some difficult moments, such as when players get injured, and when the team learns of Kobe Bryant's death. The conversations with coaches help define why players are guided the way they are, while fans like Vivica A. Fox, and sports writers like Eric Sondheimer add interesting details about how prominent the team has become over the years. Brief appearances by LeBron James and Dwayne Wade also make it fun. For those who love the sport, Top Class is a fun and interesting watch.
