America to me focuses on a year at Chicagoland's Oak Park and River Forest High School (OPRFHS), widely considered to be a safe, well-integrated, academically strong school. Students, teachers, and families of OPRFHS navigate multiple identities and find the need to code switch in order to fit in and achieve recognition at the school.
