Students of the new millennium meet a tough adversary when they go up against Mrs. Priscilla Bird, a veteran teacher practicing her craft in northern Alberta, Canada. She struggles with parents, students, and administrators during a time when self-entitlement rules.

Mrs. Bird helps and confronts students with all types of problems. There is Greg, whose loyalty to his father is getting in the way of overcoming an addiction to drugs. Mary and Frank endure daily abuse at the hands of their peers, and their lives may even be in danger.

Others at the school also are doing their best to help students navigate their way through a tough and confusing world. Mr. Lloyd, a counselor, is troubled that he cant seem to help Greg, but he somehow manages to keep other students in school who would otherwise slip through the cracks.

Take a close, comical, and realistic look at a Catholic school system and discover why dedicated people at a revered institution dont always have all the answers in Hell Hounds of High School.
