Tv Season Info

A savvy substitute teacher imparts life lessons to honors students at a Manhattan high school. Although they were overachievers in the classroom, this diverse group had much to learn about growing up. The instructor, Mr. Moore, was replaced by the equally hip but more manic Mr. MacGregor in the final season.

Head of the Class isn't filled with jokes worth hyperventilating over. Instead, it's filled with wit in the writing and charm from a great bunch of characters.
