Xaver Heer and Jean-Jacques Bertschi founded Talenta in 1998 - a "high risk project", contrary to mainstream ideologies. Within 3 years, they had received 5'000 phone calls from tormented kids and their suffering parents. Finally,they started with 9 pupils and 2 part-time teachers, and ended up with a well balanced private school with around 50 kids and 6 teachers at a time.

As neither Zurich University, ETH Zurich nor the Zurich Institute of Education were willing to undertake a deep, external evaluation and analysis of its effects in the well known school, Jean-Jacques Bertschi organized himself some "internal R&D", collected facts, worked out tests, wrote down the struggles with the Zurich authorities, informed the media and answered to the frequent feedbacks of kids, parents, experts and the public.

Today, it is clear: Yes we can! But it requires modesty, open eyes, a lot of stamina ..and love for the young and sometimes wild talents. In spite of "political correctness", the group of highly gifted kids, so crucial for our world of tomorrow, is still discriminated by state schemes of education. Yes, they need more attention! But this is only due to their potential. Their talent yearns for a challenge - equal to their potential!
Tip: Worthwhile reading for all who are interested in adequate provision for gifted kids, especially between 5 and 12 years of age.
