Special Screening of Most Likely to Succeed

Come see Most Likely to Succeed on Thursday, April 28. This critically acclaimed film examines the question, “Do current educational methods prepare students to succeed in the future?”

After disappointing interactions with his children’s schools, film producer Ted Dintersmith trekked around the country to meet with teachers, students, and leaders in education. The film captures his findings from those discussions and offers direction for change.

Seeing this film begins a community discussion of how to improve our schools. Most Likely to Succeed will be shown at 7pm, April 28, in James River Day School’s Carrington Field House.

This event is free and open to the public. A panel discussion immediately follows the film. Local educational leaders will be on hand, including representatives from Lynchburg City Schools, Lynchburg College, Randolph College, Chatham Hall, Virginia Episcopal School, and the event’s host, James River Day School. Please join us for what is sure to be an informative and exciting event here in Lynchburg!

Alumna Reece Schietinger (class of 2014) began showing a talent for film while in middle school at James River. Because of her engaging video style, Reece was asked to produce a short film about James River Day School. She chose to base her film upon the Character Pledge, which our students recite each school day morning. Reece manages to say a lot in a short, 20-second clip. Take a look!
