Most Likely To Succeed Screening Debrief

We were honored to host a screening of Most Likely to Succeed on the same evening that we debuted our newly-renovated space. The evening started with student-led tours of our new space followed by a screening of the documentary. The film examines the past, present, and future of education and the role inquiry & project-based learning has in revolutionizing the way we teach and learn. It was the perfect way to showcase and utilize our new screening room. 

Students introduced the movie and led a Q&A with guests after the screening. These student ambassadors talked about how they found success at GCE and pointed out the many similarities between GCE and High Tech High, the school featured in the documentary. Check out how some of our student ambassadors were impacted by Most Likely To Succeed.

Epic Burger is a local burger shop with the vision of educating the world about the importance of local and sustainable food. Epic Burger has opened 8 restaurants in and around Chicago and claims that some of the secrets to a successful business are consistency in processes, treating your staff with respect, and thinking big.
