Alex, 14 year-old, faces with enthusiasm the first year of high school with his childhood friends, Nicole, sensitive and secretly in love with him, and Christian, sports lover. The group is quickly joined by Sam, fond of study, and Emma, beautiful but with a little secret. All of them are united by hopes and good intentions for their first year of high school. But soon the troubles begin. The headmaster Ferrari wants his high school is the first in the excellence ranking of the schools, and this means that the students must focus on subjects, and forget any artistic activities such as music, acting, dancing. However, a teacher, the prof, Belli, thinks the opposite and encourages the students to looking for their own way. Along with him, the group of friends will understand the importance of dreams and discover the “mysterious secret room”. ALEX & CO. airs on Disney Channel.
