CW High School monster drama.

The high-concept Copeland Prep is set at the premier secondary school in the nation, which is so fiercely competitive itís turning its students into monsters ó literally ó and spreading the disturbing ramifications throughout the town.
Odd premise description...is the stress causing the kids to become monsters, or does becoming a monster give you a competitive edge in life? If this weren't the CW, I'd suspect they were going for social satire...
Could be some kind of "Steroid" or "Compound" to open up the mind, give more sports or Musical prowess... Several Horror flicks have been built around a similar premise. Even a Doctor Who episode (With Anthony Stewart Head as Head Master) explored giving something to the kids to make them smarter.
