St. Paul’s Academy, Assumption Catholic School, and Whatcom Hills Waldorf School are partnering to invite staff, families, and the community to a special screening of Most Likely to Succeed, a documentary film created to help schools and communities effect change. The free screening will take place on Thursday, February 8th at St. Paul’s Academy (Markell Hall, 1509 E. Victor Street, Bellingham, WA) at 7 p.m.

The film, which received critical acclaim at the Sundance and Tribeca film festivals, highlights how to meet the needs of 21st century learners while also fostering a culture in education that will lead to both in college and career successes. The film inspires its audience with a sense of purpose and possibility, and brings school communities together by reimagining what our students and teachers are capable of doing.
