My So-Called High School Rank goes deep into the lives of high school students in three radically disparate communities as they navigate the pressures around college while staging a musical, until seismic events upend their dreams and expectations.


Months before the college admissions scandal made headlines in 2019, students in Sacramento, CA were busy creating a new musical that drew from their own experiences as talented but very anxious students – all focused on getting into the same top schools. 


RANKED, the musical, premiered just weeks before Federal charges were levied against Rick Singer, the mastermind behind the college bribing scandal the FBI dubbed Varsity Blues. 


As word about the musical spread, schools around the country reached out to stage it with their students. The film follows the journey of RANKED, the musical, and reveals the remarkable resilience that binds this generation across economic and racial divides.
