The unique teachers at the Diffendoofer School teach students how to think and laugh, tie knots and saddle a leopard. After the headmaster finds out the students have to take a standardized test, he worries their studies haven’t prepared them. He shouldn’t have worried, the students receive the highest scores. 

“Don’t fret!” she said, / You’ve learned the things you need / To pass that test and many more / I’m certain you’ll succeed. / We’ve taught you that the earth is round, / That red and white make pink, / And something else that matters more / We’ve taught you how to think.”
