A Network Connecting School Leaders From Around The Globe
Parents need to know that Eighth Grade is a coming-of-age dramedy directed by internet star Bo Burnham. It centers on Kayla (Elsie Fisher), a 13-year-old girl who's trying to get through her last week of middle school. Dealing with many of the familiar challenges faced by tweens and teens, Kayla is trying to balance school, make friends, find her voice, record the perfect YouTube video, and manage the overwhelming nerves and self-consciousness that go along with being 13. This looks best for middle schoolers; expect some swearing, discussion of romance and sexuality, and heavy but relatable themes.
