How well did Poe do in school?

By the age of six, Poe was writting poems and stories better than Longfellow and the other great writers in those times. He had an IQ of aproximately 205, about the same as Albert Einstein. He was so smart that he thought of everyone as idiots and dummies. So, Mr. Grant sir, I hope that I have answered your question. OVER AND OUT!
