Most Likely to Succeed
The Webster Groves School District will present “Most Likely to Succeed,” an award-winning documentary on the worldwide campaign to re-imagine education at 7 p.m. Oct. 25 in the Hixson auditorium. The film offers an inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of—if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools. The event is free and open to the public. The evening will include dialogue about learning in schools today.
The film has been an official selection of two dozen of the world’s top film festivals, including Sundance, Tribeca, and AFI DOCS. It’s been featured at leading conferences on education, including ASU/GSV, SxSWedu, Harvard/GoldmanSachs and NewSchools Venture Fund. Audience members call it the most compelling film ever done on the topic of school.
