Every year, over a million students drop out of high school. They may complete their graduate equivalency degrees, but then they discover they’re still struggling to get good jobs. For some in Indianapolis, there’s another option: a night school program that will get them their full high school diploma – if they can complete a tough curriculum that includes algebra and biology. Night School is an intimate look at a year in the lives of three students: a single father trying to make a better life for his young daughter, an older woman looking to complete the schooling she abandoned almost 40 years before, and a young woman who needs her diploma to enroll in nursing school.
