Originally a spin-off of Diff'rent Strokes, the series featured the Drummonds' housekeeper, Edna Garrett, as the housemother of a dormitory at Eastland, a private all-girls school. The girls in her care included spoiled rich girl Blair Warner (Lisa Whelchel), gossipy Dorothy "Tootie" Ramsey (Kim Fields), overweight, impressionable Natalie Green (Mindy Cohn), and tough street kid Jo Polniaczek (Nancy McKeon). Other student characters came and went throughout the series' run.
