SERIES INFO | DAILY SCHEDULE | PROGRAMS A-Z

180 Days follows the day-to-day stories of students, parents, teachers and staff at the Washington Metropolitan High School (also known as DC Met). At the center of 180 Days is a charismatic and outspoken young principal, Tanishia Williams Minor, who is in her second year as head of the school. Principal Minor remains optimistic that her students can succeed despite the personal and academic obstacles they face, and the scrutiny that she and the school are under from the school board, her optimism that the students can succeed seems indefatigable.
