Syrian School

Syrian School is a unique five-part series which covers a year in the life of four schools in Damascus, a high pressure crossroads in the Middle East.

Lion Television was given unprecedented access to these schools, their staff and students – the first time this has ever been happened. The series reveals some remarkable characters, challenging the usual clich├ęs of Arab life, and charts the highs and lows of  the school year.
