Tori Vega has a seemingly talented older sister, named Trina, that attends Hollywood Arts High School. After singing her heart out as her sister's replacement one performance night, Tori is invited to attend the prestigious school. Surrounded by students with painting, musical, acting and singing abilities, Tori feels nervous about her place in the new school. She meets Andre, a musician, along with other friends, Beck, Cat, and Robbie. Tori also meets Jade, who immediately despises her, along with Robbie's unusual puppet pal, Rex. Tori meets her mentoring teacher, named Mr. Sikowitz, and finds that even the school's faculty is peculiar. Sipping on juice straight out of a coconut, and walking around barefoot, Mr. Sikowitz helps Tori and her friends realize their artistic dreams without compromising themselves.
