A film produced by Milton resident and community news blogger Frank Schroth will be shown at the Milton Public Library on June 27 at 7 p.m.

The short documentary-style film is about the Tucker Elementary School and aims to highlight progress made at the school on statewide tests.

Schroth said he first considered creating the film after listening to Principal Marcia Uretsky's presentation to the School Committee about the academic achievements at Tucker.

"I was impressed with the presentation, which included some compelling metrics on the progress the students had made," he said in an e-mail. "The school had performed exceptionally well in terms of MCAS scores. The question I had was why." 

Schroth and his partner, Michael Lynch, conducted interviews with parents, teachers, and students. They let the answers determine the direction and theme of the film, which took about a year to complete and runs just under 30 minutes.  

Scroth said he hopes the film sheds light on the school and shows the community a "remarkable school that is achieving at a high level."

The showing is free and open to the public. The Milton Public Library is located at 476 Canton Ave.
