Six years ago, Feversham Primary Academy was in dire straights. The school, an hour northeast of Manchester in the United Kingdom, was struggling to engage students and parents alike. A change was desperately needed. Today, the school has undergone a complete transformation. Feversham is now performing among the best of England's schools.
What brought about such dramatic change?
A curriculum centered on music, the BBC reports.
At a moment of crisis, the school's administration made the decision not to double down on science or math, but to emphasize music instead. The results have been amazing, as this inspirational video explains.
