Baby Bears escape their hectic lives by attending school.
The episode begins as the Baby bears escaping a monster truck as it turns a corner. The man driving angrily tells them to get lost and that nobody wants them, and Grizz rebuffs saying his car stinks as it drives away. Grizz tells his brothers that was the last time they tried to find a family at a monster truck rally. Panda asks why nobody likes them and Grizz tells him it was part of being an adult.
A school bus stops in front of them, and as kids leave the bears are curious. Grizz asks a boy, Ronnie on where they were going and he tells them it was school. The bell rings, and he asks if they were coming, to their surprise. He invites them inside and the bears are surprised when they arrive in the classroom. The teacher comes up to the bears and asks if they were the three new foreign exchange students, and Grizz says yes. She excitedly tells them to introduce themselves to the class, and they do (with the exception of Ice Bear). The teacher tells them to take a seat and they sit next to Ronnie. Grizz asks Ronnie what they do during school and Ronnie explains that the teacher asks them a question and they answer them. The teacher begins class by asking what the capital of Idaho is and Grizz raises his hand, getting the question right and earning a gold star. Excited, the bears all go on to answer questions for the rest of the hour and get many gold stars in the process.
In the cafeteria, the bears are getting lunch when they notice their classmates are avoiding them. Grizz questions why, and another kid tells them the bears have become teacher's pets and now no one likes them. Panda asks Grizz what they needed to do and he decides they now had to do the opposite of being too good now. In class, Grizz answers a question with a raspberry, to the teacher's surprise and the clas begins to laugh. Panda starts throwing paper airplanes everywhere and Ice bear throws crayons and various pictures onto the ceiling, using glue to make them stick. The teacher tries to calm down the class to no avail, and Grizz gets the class's attention by blowing a spitball that bounces off a planet replica, which then lands onto a fishbowl that shatters it. The teacher quickly picks up the fish and puts in in a mug. Angry, the teacher takes his hand and tells him he was going to the principal's office, leaving the class. Panda thinks that Grizz might be getting a reward for doing so well, but Ronnie explains it was a bad thing to go. He explains that kids are locked in there for hours, the principal making them write on the chalkboard repeatedly and he watches until they become chalk themselves. Panda says they had to try and rescue him. Ronnie tells him they want to help, and they all think the bears are cool now.
The teacher returns from the office and the class begins the plan, which leads Ronnie, Panda, and Ice Bear into the school air ducts. Ronnie leads them through the ducts with a map and they crawl right above the principal's office. Panda drops down tied to a paper chain, seeing Grizz. Grizz, excited to see them warns the principal stepped out for a few minutes. He stacks a few materials to reach Panda's hand, but the principal comes in, hearing the noise of the chalk drop and he begins to chase them. Grizz is pulled up in time just as the principal's hand goes through the duct opening. Ronnie tells them to go without him, and the bears thank him for the help before they go. The bears run crawl fast through the ducts as the principal chases them, punching up as they go until they escape into the hallway. The bears see the exit and they run as the principal makes it in the hallway. The door is locked and the bears find themselves stuck, but then the bell rings. The kids all rush out the door, pushing it open and letting the bears escape. Grizz thanks his brothers for helping him escape and they realize how hard a kid's life can be and school probably wasn't the place for them, deciding to move on. The episode ends with the bears walking down the sidewalk, brainstorming ideas on where they should go next.
