Debuting in 2004, “Ned’s Declassified” followed a trio of best friends as they attempted to navigate middle school life. Throughout the show, main character Ned would offer “tips” on how to survive every obstacle from handling bullies, to studying for tests and charming crushes. Since graduating from the eighth grade, many of the students at James K. Polk Middle School have continued their acting careers while some have decided to explore new territory.
