Is Albert Einstein really a genius?

I don't mean to create controversy here. I know he had contribute a lot of things/formula/theories that have benefit to we all and the world generally. But my really question is, is he really genius? I read somewhere that he was not even completing his schooling! Were all his theories created solely by him or he had some help from his team of researchers? And who were they?

I have done a graduation paper two years ago about albert einstein's life. I can tell you he has completed his studies and he began his career very low, as a secretary for a magazine. and he was in his very early 20's when he discovered the formula E=mc2 and formulated the theory of relativity. I believe that the merrit is his alone.

I understand that Albert Einstein did have trouble at school, and did not complete his education. However, a genius (a word that is over-used today) is a person whose brain and intelligence are much greater than those around him, not whose education is better. Einstein, like Stephen Hawking today, was able to visualise things within his mind that I could not even begin to understand. Also, Einstein has proven with his theories, that much that his school was trying to teach him was wrong. Later in his life, he continued to carry out his own self-education, and published books on a diverse range of subjects, including a book explaining why Jesus was an Egyptian, long before the church would admit that it had doctored many of the religious texts taken as the truth. I feel that he was a genius, though he would not have worked completely alone. People need to discuss their ideas, as others may see flaws in your ideas.
