Series Info

A long-running `Diff'rent Strokes' spin-off set at a girls boarding school, with the Drummond's former housekeeper, Mrs. Garrett, now a housemother. The venues for her charges' escapades moved off-campus in later years when Mrs. Garrett opened a series of eateries in town, but her core group of young women remained largely unchanged.
