China Anne McClain Grows Up Fast as an 11-Year-Old High Schooler in Disney's A.N.T. Farm

Sierra McCormick, China Anne McClain, Jake Short

High school is hard enough for teenagers — now picture enrolling before you've hit puberty.

In new Disney Channel series A.N.T. Farm, 11-year-old Chyna Parks, played by China Anne McClain, attends high school as part of its Advanced Natural Talents program for gifted students. Chyna, along with best friends Olive (Sierra McCormick) and Fletcher (Jake Short), struggles to fit in with the older teens who aren't too fond of the grade-skipping kids. And Chyna doesn't exactly rub the upper-classmen the right way at first.

"Chyna really doesn't care what the high schoolers say or what they think about her," McClain, who is 12, says. "She says, 'Move out of my way I'm going to make my big entrance.'" Chyna demonstrated that outlook in the show's preview episode last month where she invites herself to a high school party. After her classmates do their best to cause trouble for her, Chyna shines — and also saves the day.
