Charles P. Steinmetz Academic Centre (known as Steinmetz High School), is a public 4-year high school located in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood on the northside of Chicago, Illinois. It is a part of the Chicago Public Schools. It is named for the handicapped German-American mathematician and electrical engineer Charles Proteus Steinmetz. The 2000 television movie Cheaters is based on a 1995 Academic Decathlon scandal that involved the school. Parts of Cheaters were filmed (without permission) at Steinmetz.
Famous quotes containing the words centre and/or academic:
“Here in the centre stands the glass. Light
Is the lion that comes down to drink. There
And in that state, the glass is a pool.
Ruddy are his eyes and ruddy are his claws
When light comes down to wet his frothy jaws”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
“I was so grateful to be independent of the academic establishment. I thought, how awful it would be to have my future hinge on such people and such decisions.”
—Jane Jacobs (b. 1916)
