Taglines: Rules aren’t for everyone
A new student named Rafe Khatchadorian (Griffin Gluck), who is very passionate of his artistic talent, can not wait to start his first day at Hills Village Middle School, but it is not as glamorous as he believes when Principal Dwight (Andy Daly) and most teachers who are in charge of him, are cruel and worse than the bullies. So after Rafe and his friends have finally had enough of them, they come up with an idea to start a massive “insurrection” to go up against their atrocious principal to humiliate him.
