Thank you for writing this! I saw an ad for the show last weekend, and, while I was skeptical of the overall premise, I assumed that it must follow the students in one high school for at least a semester, if not a full year, in order to actually deliver on its "everything changes!" promises. Sounds like the purpose is to make viewers feel better at the end of the episode, rather than to offer the kids any significant improvement. Sad, but not surprising since it's MTV.
