Because of his unruly behavior, John Stanton is taken out of high school and sent to an institution for headshrinking. As a result of the incident, the school has adopted a new rule book. Maddox, who attends the same school, thinks it’s the teachers and their rules that are insane and he obsesses on clearing Stanton’s name. Maddox needs a little help from his friends and he enlists Clip, Amanda and a somewhat reluctant Chris to team up with him and leave school behind. First Maddox wants to sabotage the faculty and erases grades from the computers and hatches a plot to steal the teachers’ lesson plans, copy them, and distribute them to the students. But not everyone is on the same page.
