The year after our move to Ohio we started our private preparatory school, for the sake of our six children. The high school curriculum in the local school was so poor that we dared not let our own brood waste the precious years between twelve and eighteen. Our school's curriculum was patterned after that of a Swiss Gymnasium or College. Switzerland strictly requires a reading and speaking knowledge of three or four languages, mathematics to calculus, four years world history, and a thorough grounding in physics, chemistry and biology. We never succeeded fully, but our own six went to college well prepared. Our five daughters have earned five M.A., one M.F.A., and two Ph.D. degrees. Our son is a successful contractor in Colorado. And all six know how to use their hands. I gave my full time to our school from 1953 to 1963.
