The Hatfield Public School District to host “Most Likely to Succeed” on September 27, 2017

                 The Hatfield Public Schools is proudly partnering with the Hatfield Education Foundation and the Hatfield Special Education Parent Advisory Council in presenting the award winning film “Most Likely to Succeed”. The film will be shown at 6 pm on September 27, 2017 at the Hatfield Elementary School. All members of the Hatfield Community are encouraged to attend.

                The acclaimed film “Most Likely to Succeed” offers an inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of when they have the vision and courage to transform their school. 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, SxSWedu, Harvard/GoldmanSachs, and NewSchools Venture Fund.

                The film focuses on a school in San Diego, California that successfully empowers students to take a very active role in their learning and uses a project-based approach to education.  Audience members have called it the most compelling film ever done on the topic of school. In the past year, more than 2,300 communities have shown “Most Likely to Succeed”. 

                The purpose of this event is to foster a meaningful discussion among educators, administrators, parents, and students about the value of project-based learning and some of the steps the school and community can take to build upon the concepts presented in the film.  After the film, school administrators will facilitate a brief discussion focusing on some of the initiatives already begun in the District and soliciting both feedback and suggestions from the audience.

This event is free and open to the public. Child care is available. Please visit for more information about the film.
