I recently noticed that not too far from my apartment is a school called Walt Disney Magnet School.
Other than wondering why there’s a whole school devoted to making Disney refrigerator decorations, it got me thinking about what the school might offer.

I bet kids at this school are one jump ahead of the curve, painting with all the colors of the wind. They probably all aspire to be king, because they’ve learned more than just the bare necessities and have learned to always be prepared. If only I could be part of their world.
