Chapter Mission

The commitment of the professional membership has been the key to the success of the Association for Learning Environments. We must now build on this tradition by increasing our membership to include sectors now under-represented within the organization. Increasing membership from the communities we serve to include minorities and urban school personnel.

Join us for a fun and inspirational evening with friends and colleagues at a charming venue and experience a film that is turning our old views of school upside down. This movie has been shown at festivals across the globe including the very prestigious Sundance and Tribeca festivals. It has also been shown at the regional A4LE conference in Salt Lake City this year and the CEI conference at Snowmass last year. It is a fascinating exploration of how kids learn and how our schools may need to change to provide what kids need in our changing world environment. It is a close look at what happens at High Tech High, a school putting project based learning into full practice.

To date, “Most Likely to Succeed” has screened for thousands of audiences around the world, igniting conversations and empowering change along the way.
