Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Stand and Deliver pulls off the unlikely feat of making math class the stuff of underdog drama -- and pays rousing tribute to a real-life inspirational figure in the bargain.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Stand and Deliver is a 1988 movie based on the true story of an inspiring math teacher in a struggling inner-city Los Angeles high school who, through his hard work and tireless dedication, helps his students live up to their full potential and succeed at AP calculus. Gangs threaten violence, and there's a scene in which students are chased through the hallways of the school by someone trying to hit them with a chain. While the film shows what can be achieved when a tough but fair teacher brings out the best in his students -- students who are shown struggling with the difficulties of their neighborhoods, family life, and the pains of adolescence -- there are some scenes in which some of what the teacher says would be seen as inappropriate by today's standards, including a scene in which a girl with a reputation for being "easy" is slut-shamed by the teacher. While she does stand up for herself, the teacher experiences no repercussions for his remarks or even an awareness that what he said was highly inappropriate. There is also some profanity -- Spanish slang for "a--hole" and "fat girl" mixed in with English curse words.
