  • Bart cheats on an intelligence test, and is transferred to a special school for gifted children... but he doesn't exactly fit in there!

    9.0
    During an intelligence test at school, Bart switches papers with Martin Prince (the school genius). After the papers are graded, he is called into the school psychologist's office with his parents to be told that he has an IQ of 216. Dr Pryor asks Bart if he is ever bored in school, and Bart says that he is because he doesn't feel challenged. Dr Pryor tells Bart that he can be transferred to a school where you can do anything you want, and Bart is thrilled to be going to such a place. But when he gets there, he finds out that it isn't exactly what he thought and that he doesn't fit in (and will never fit in). He causes several accidents and realizes that he doesn't know the material that the class are studying. He finally admits to Dr Pryor that he cheated on the test.
