SUMMIT, NJ - "Most Likely To Succeed," a documentary that explores compelling new approaches which aim to revolutionize teaching as we know it, will screen at MONDO December 4, beginning at 8 p.m.

The documentary follows students in a school created to prepare graduates for the innovation era. There, over the course of a school year, Ninth Graders take on ambitious, project-based challenges that promote critical skills rather than rote memorization.

This evolutionary method also indirectly brings to life new approaches that revolutionize school as most have come to know it, thereby providing students a fighting chance in a dynamic, extremely competitive economy.

Following the film, Summit Superintendent of Schools June Chang will participate in a discussion, with audience members having the opportunity to review the issues raised by the film with Chang, who will also share his plans for the District in light of technology's effect on a shifting worldwide economy.

An official 2015 Sundance Film Festival Selection, "Most Likely To Succeed" Director Craig Whitely examines alternative ways of schooling, and has constructed an engaging look at how big picture issues can be intimately explored through human confessionals. His subjects offer contemplative and honest assessments of their role in a system that might need a complete overhaul to survive.

Tickets are priced at $12 in advance, $14 at the door, and are available at smarttix.com and as well as MONDO. Seating is limited. For further information visit summitfilmsociety.com, call 973-885-1983, or via e-mail at summitfilm@gmail.com.
