Excited kids, to go back to school is not something seen very much anymore. Also seeing great teachers is very selective, or it was at my high school. During high school I had some teachers that were amazing and some teachers that just got through the long hour. Teachers that were amazing and always willing to go out of their way to help with a subject that I did not understand are the kinds of teachers the education system needs more of.

In the movie, Will was born with the talent to be able to do difficult math with ease. He also read up on subjects that interested him. Multiple scenes show Will’s brilliance.
