LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Sunday night, MTV is airing a special on a Louisville High School that is for pregnant teens and teen moms.

Back in March WAVE 3 spoke with school officials who say the school is a model program for districts around the country.

Baby High is a one-hour special that profiles four students enrolled in TAPP (Teenage Parenting Program) at the Westport school (or Westport Alternative High School) in Louisville.

At Westport Tapp, school buses come equipped with baby seats, there's onsite daycare & health clinic, parenting classes are on the curriculum. With teen pregnancy rates on the rise, and the consequences often devastating, TAPP is designed to give these teens - who otherwise would most likely dropout - a chance to stay on course and graduate despite the fact they're becoming moms at such a young age.

"Baby high" airs Sunday night at 9pm on MTV.
