What makes you think the hybrids (assuming they exist) would be smarter than regular humans?
You aren't just born smart you have to acquire knowledge from studying and learning stuff or am I missing something?

I'm not saying I agree with the OP, but you can be born with a higher capacity for gaining knowledge and a higher capacity to effectively use that
knowledge to solve problems. That capacity for gaining knowledge and solving problems is called "intelligence", which is different than knowledge
A person could be born with a higher intelligence (capacity to learn) than someone else. Those two people may be exposed to the same amount of
knowledge and the same education, but the person with the higher intelligence may be able to acquire knowledge faster, and may be able to solve
problems more quickly.
That's what I.Q. measures -- the capacity
to learn. Theoretically, a person's I.Q. does not change with age -- i.e., a child who has not yet
been exposed to knowledge will have the same theoretical I.Q. as he would after he goes through a lifetime of learning.
Another example would be -- say -- ancient Egyptians. Ancient Egyptians were for all intents and purposes just as intelligent as we are today. They
had the same capacity for learning, and they had the same intellectual capacity to solve problems. Just because we have more "knowledge" than they do
does not make us more 'Intelligent".
