Humboldt school focus of George Lucas foundation

Posted: Updated:

HUMBOLDT, Ariz. (AP) - An education foundation started by "Star Wars" filmmaker George Lucas has its camera aimed at a rural Arizona school.

The Daily Courier reported Saturday that the George Lucas Educational Foundation will film Humboldt Elementary School in Humboldt in August.

The oldest school in its district, the campus is being spotlighted for being high-performing despite its rural location and low-income student population.

School leaders say they underwent extensive interviews with representatives from Edutopia, a Lucas-owned company that oversees film productions labeled as "Schools that Work."

A crew will be at the school from Aug. 25-28 and document classroom activities and staff meetings.

Edutopia films selected schools to show effective learning methods for K-12 learning.
