Mr. Berrigan is the best teacher you can encounter in your high school career. He is passionate about what he does, and cares as long as you show that your interested and care too. He sometimes does complain we have no time in class, but goes on and on with side stories. Overall, he is tremendous and you would be lucky to have him. ps- he lets you bring in notes for the performance task (the rocket project)

Prepares you for university (engineering/physics). Amazing teacher and lecturer who knows what he's talking about. Anyone who thinks otherwise probably isn't going into either of those fields. Available at anytime to answer question. 13/10 would recommend, 15/10 with rice.

Mr Berrigan is the best teacher that you could ever hope for, people from university are passing physics easily because they had his class. He talks really fast and some time you will need to study by your self to understand the concept. All the lab's final due date is the end of semester.(KAPPA) He is the best physics teacher, if not the best teacher of OT.

I didn't like him last year. If someone isn't paying attention he stops the whole class for too long, so there are at least 5 lectures a day of why we should concentrate (annoying). He also teaches to the top student, so whenever the first person has the answer he moves on to the next question and no one else is done. I have him next semester and I hope it won't be too bad :/

Really smart man. No teacher at OT loves astronomy more than Mr. Berrigan. Gr. 12 Physics involve many things that cannot be easily understood and he puts in a good effort explaining it. Tests are hard and need to be written fast, which is a good thing because it prepares you for university. He gives a lot of marks for showing work, even if you get a wrong answer.

Mr. Berrigan is the closest thing I've ever seen to a real-life mad scientist. I've never seen someone get more excited about physics in my life. The mad scientist hairdo just adds to the persona. Even if his many idiosyncrasies begin to wear thin, you can rest assured he will always know what he's talking about.

Berrigan really displays a love for what he teaches. More importantly he's one of the few teachers who are also sensible, adult human beings. Fair marker and U good prep. Take Berrigan physics today.
