Due to popular demand, the Mark R Isfeld parent advisory council will once again be hosting a screening of the Sundance-selected documentary, Most Likely To Succeed.
On Wednesday, Oct. 25 at 6:30 p.m. in the multi-purpose room at Mark Isfeld Secondary School, the school’s PAC will once more take part in Most Likely to Succeed’s worldwide campaign to re-imagine education. The acclaimed film offers an inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of – if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, 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, Harvard/GoldmanSachs, and NewSchools Venture Fund.
Audience members call it the most compelling film ever done on the topic of school.
In the past year, more than 2,300 communities have booked a screening of Most Likely to Succeed.
The purpose of this event is to foster meaningful discussion among educators, administrators, parents, and students about how current obstacles can be overcome and steps towards change can be taken on a local level.
Born out of these conversations, is a community-wide commitment to moving forward; transformational initiatives are undertaken and real change is ignited.
This event is open to the public. It will be held at Mark R Isfeld Secondary school, Multi-purpose Room, 1551 Lerwick Rd. Courtenay, Oct. 25 at 6:30 p.m.
All are welcome. No Admission fee
The screening of the film will be followed by a brief presentation by principal of Isfeld, Mr. Jeff Taylor, on what Isfeld is already doing to re-engage students, and he will be available to answer questions afterwards.
