Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A not-so-eager-to-please effort that understands Alan Parker's original vision - of rejection, hard work and self-discovery - and depicts it with clear eyes."
‑ David DeWitt, New York Times
"Arts docu shows how hard passionate teens work in school."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"The dilemmas Fame High's four subjects face are real, and Kennedy gets plenty of drama from the prospect of failure and disappointment."
‑ Steve Erickson, Village Voice
"Fame may be fleeing, but the kids in "Fame High" will stay with you."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
