Memories, school.

The High School that I graduated from was designed to identify gifted individuals and give them advanced education. Sort of like "Real Genius", but limited to the Detroit area, not a boarding school, and open to literature and the arts as well. I was extremely lucky to get in there, because I was on the brink of self-immolating as a teenager. And it changed my life profoundly. I'm not going to say the name of it, but it's not exactly hard to find. Anyways, I became a determined student and a devoted advocate of the school itself and of its philosophy.

The school was based on the German Gymnasium model and was founded by two Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany.
