On Thursday, May 5, Reaching Higher NH will join with local partners to host a screening of the award-winning film, “Most Likely to Succeed”. Intended to promote discussion on the future of education here in New Hampshire, the screening will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Sanborn Regional High School, 17 Danville Road, Kingston, NH.
The free community event will feature childcare, pizza, and fun activities for children while adults enjoy the film screening. An ice cream social hosted by the local Kingston business What’s the Scoop? will be enjoyed by everyone following the screening.
Featured at fifteen national film festivals, including the Sundance Film Festival, “Most Likely to Succeed” explores the history of education and the growing opportunities to reinvent our schools to meet the needs of today’s innovative world. Education Week declared the film “among the best edu-documentaries ever produced.” The film has sparked inspired, forward-looking conversations and action in communities across the country.
District Superintendent Dr. Brian Blake remarked, “The Sanborn Regional School District is proud to be a co-sponsor of this important event. Sanborn is on the leading edge of many educational changes in New Hampshire in terms of our competency based education model, the PACE pilot, and dual enrollment opportunities for students. This film highlights the educational reforms happening in the country and how we must change to meet the needs of our students in the 21st century”.
This event is co-sponsored by Reaching Higher NH, Support SAU 17, Sanborn Regional Education Association, Sanborn Regional School District, Students with a Voice, the Business and Industry Association of New Hampshire, and NEA-NH.
