TLC AND DISCOVERY FIT & HEALTH GO INSIDE THE CLASSROOM TO REVEAL LIFE AS A TEEN MOM IN NEW SERIES "HIGH SCHOOL MOMS"

-- High School Moms Premieres on TLC August 12 at 10 PM ET/PT--

-- Encore Airing of High School Moms on Discovery Fit & Health August 16 at 10 PM ET/PT--

(New York, NY) - Every high school has its share of drama, from driving lessons and finals to self-esteem issues and boy troubles. At Florence Crittenton High School the students face all of this, but their troubles go beyond finding a date to prom or deciding what outfit to wear...every one of them is a teen mom or mom-to-be. Go behind-classroom-doors with TLC and Discovery Fit & Health and witness what happens when these teenagers try to balance schoolwork, sonograms, diapers and dreams of a bright future. HIGH SCHOOL MOMS premieres on TLC Sunday, August 12 at 8 PM MST/10 PM ET and catch an encore airing on Discovery Fit & Health Thursday, August 16 at 8 PM MST/ 10 PM ET.

School is in session in this six-part series that goes inside the halls of a Denver high school catering to teen families. With only 40-percent of teen moms graduating from high school nationally, HIGH SCHOOL MOMS provides a rare glimpse into the daily struggles of a group of teens who are determined to make a better life for themselves and their families by getting their high school diploma. Staffed with a devoted faculty, nursing facilities and on-site daycare center, Florence Crittenton High School offers these teen moms every opportunity to continue their education while tackling the responsibilities of caring for a baby or preparing for motherhood. Even with this strong support system in place, every day challenges arise forcing some of these teen parents to question if their high school diploma is even worth it. With bills to pay, some absent fathers and wailing infants, passing an algebra class can feel like the least of their problems, forcing these teen moms and moms-to-be to find the strength within themselves to continue their education while balancing it all. From struggling with the decision to drop out because the daycare bills are past due to getting ready for the school's first prom, HIGH SCHOOL MOMS gives an unfiltered look at what it's like to be a teen mother in high school.

HIGH SCHOOL MOMS is produced for TLC and Discovery Fit & Health by Rize USA.
