Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO) and Shonan Junai Gumi
GTO focuses on the the story of ex gang member Eikichi Onizuka, who becomes a teacher at a private high school called Holy Forest Academy. His is assigned to a class full of troubled students such as: a girl who knows too much, a boy who is constantly abused by a group of girls and a bunch of other troubling cases. The problem is the whole class has stigma against teachers. Through-out the series Onizuka tries to help everyone although his tactics are sometimes extreme. BTW- Shonan Junai Gumi follows Eikichi's life when he is in his teens.
This is a must see classic. Hands down. You could probably match at least half the students in Onizuka's class with people you know in school. I can assure you that after you watch this series you are going to wish you had a teacher at least half as cool as Onizuka!
