On Chicago's West Side, there is a school for the city's most at-risk youth — the Moses Montefiore Academy. Most of the students at Montefiore have been kicked out of other schools for aggressive behavior, and many have been diagnosed with emotional disorders.

Last Chance High takes viewers inside Montefiore's classrooms and into the homes of students who are one mistake away from being locked up or committed to a mental hospital.

In the second episode of "Last Chance High" we are introduced to the young Montreal "Spanky" Almond who fights a daily battle with a crippling speech impediment along with his fellow students' derision, mockery and bullying at the Moses Montefiore Academy in Chicago.
