Yearbook was a documentary television series that aired on the Fox Network in 1991. It is one of the earliest examples of a reality series as it chronicled the school and home lives of various students of Glenbard West High School in Glen Ellyn, Illinois — a suburb of Chicago. The critically acclaimed series was filmed over a six-month period, five days a week by Chicago Videographer Ned Miller in the betacam video format.[1]

Among the subjects covered were Homecoming, sports competition, dating, the war in Iraq and personal tragedy.

The premise of the show was repeated in another Fox reality series American High, which was filmed in 2000 at another suburban Chicago school — Highland Park High School in Highland Park, Illinois.
