Undercover High is a reality television show that first aired on A&E in 2014. The show follows the lives of seven young adults as they go undercover in a Kansas high school to get a firsthand experience of what it's like to be a teenager in today's society. The participants range in age from 21 to 26 and come from various backgrounds, including college students, military veterans, and recent graduates.

The premise of the show is to see how these young adults will blend in with the high school students and whether they'll be able to gain their trust and learn about their lives. The participants were given fake identities and backgrounds that would help them fit in with the high school students. Each participant had a specific mission to complete during their time at the school, which ranged from observing students' behavior to working with school administrators to improve student engagement.

Nate Callens was one of the participants on the show, and he was tasked with creating a safe space for LGBTQ+ students at the school. Nate was a college student at the time and openly gay. He was excited to take on this mission because he wanted to help create a supportive community for LGBTQ+ students, something he never had in high school. Throughout the show, Nate struggled to gain the trust of the high school students, and he faced backlash from those who didn't agree with his mission.

Christopher Fowler was another participant on the show, and his mission was to work on improving student attendance. Christopher was a recent college graduate and had experience working with students in low-income communities. He believed that by creating a positive environment and building relationships with students, he could help improve attendance rates. Christopher had a difficult time gaining the trust of the students, and he often clashed with the school administrators on how to address the attendance issue.

Elyse Reed was the final participant on the show, and her mission was to focus on students' mental health. Elyse had experience working in the mental health field and was passionate about breaking the stigma surrounding mental health. She worked with school counselors to create programs and resources for students struggling with mental health issues. Elyse faced challenges during her mission, including students who didn't want to talk about their mental health and a lack of resources available to students.

Throughout the show, the participants faced many challenges as they tried to navigate high school life. They were often confronted with peer pressure, bullying, and other issues facing teenagers today. The show provided a unique perspective on what it's like to be a teenager in today's society and shed light on the challenges that high school students face.

Undercover High received mixed reviews from critics, with some praising the show for its unique perspective and others criticizing it for being too scripted and staged. Despite the mixed reviews, the show was successful in bringing attention to issues facing high school students and sparking conversations about how to address these issues.
