Biotech high school in Virginia

Sounds like the N.I.C.E. from That Hideous Strength may be opening up in Loudoun County, Va., but in the form of a specialized high school. Story here.

The W.Post adds that students at this school will come for classes every other day, attending their home high schools for English, history and other courses, as well as for extracurricular activities and sports.

And, since it will become obvious back at their "home high schools" that these nerds are the ones who will be designing everyone else's grandchildren, they may finally be able to get dates.
