Common Sense Media: Best Back-to-School Movies

19 of 27

'Stand and Deliver' (1988)

Ages: 13+

Synopsis: Intensely watchable movie based on a true story.

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this film deals with mature themes and language. Gangs that threaten violence, and a chain-wielding teacher pursues three kids through the school. There's a lot of macho bravado in and out of the classroom. Parents undermine their kids' academic dreams, and a teacher refuses to believe her underprivileged students are capable of excellence. —Common Sense Media (Photo: Warner Bros.)
