I really enjoy these kind of films lately. I watched one in class and it reminded me of my high school days (only a couple years ago). I also remember watching the FOX/PBS show "American High" and found that interesting as well.

So, does anyone know of any documentaries where filmmakers follow high school kids through a few months or entire year of school? Or anything similar to this? Thanks.

I'm not sure if your excluding audio-only presentations, but This American Life on Public Radio had a cool episode on proms. They follow some kids around in one segment.

Listen to it here (RealAudio required):

Thanks, but I was looking for something much more recent.
