Viewers will meet graduates of some of the best high schools in the country... 15 years after the fact. Though their school days are in the past, the competition, the cliques, the insecurities and the longstanding grudges are as true now as they were back then. These driven and successful alumni may have families and careers of their own now, but the friendships, rivalries and love affairs prove that some things never change.
