I heard that in Asia, children get better education. Does school determine how smart someone is? is smartness genetic? or is the enviroment you grew up in? the household?

It's a combination of both.
I my opinion "intelligence" is how efficiently you can process, store and retain information.
"knowledge" is the information you have retained.
So a person with an above average level of intelligence could study for only 1 hour and get an A on an exam.
A person with an average lever of intelligence might have to study for 2 hours to get that same A.
They have the same knowledge but the person with the higher intelligence obtained it more efficiently. Also the average person might have to brush up on it more frequently to retain that knowledge.
Intelligence is inate, how much knowledge is available to you in rhe classroom and what you are expected to know would vary depending on the school.0
