Mr. Ornstein was an amazing teacher. Very understanding of my quiet nature. He never made me feel bad about it like other teachers did. Instead, he emphasized the content of my presentations rather than my eye contact or volume. I really miss being in his class. I hope to see him again some day.

He IS strict, but it motivates you to complete your work on time and stay on task. If you're an organized and responsible student who attends class on time there shouldn't be any issues. He treats everyone fairly, doesn't play favorites, and can be nice if you're a good student. Yes, he does have an attitude but it shouldn't get in the way of your learning. He's also a fair marker, just read the damn rubric. :)

i have only had him for a few weeks and i already miss my grade 11 teacher mr birrell. Ornstein picks on me and i'll admit that i'm annoying but he addresses what i did for my isu conference in front of everyone in the class. He plays favourites for sure and if i were to say, not a very good teacher

This guy sucks! If you are in grade 12 find a way to get leclair or Theordoridis as your teacher, this man does not listen to what you have to say. Also, he has favourites...one of the worst teachers hands down.

Horrible teacher. I am now entering my grad studied for biochem, if I had not retaken chem second semester with leclair I might have not gotten into University. He is the one teacher I have had in my life that I actually hate with a passion. Avoid if possible, you will be much happier and learn more

Easily the best teacher I had in high school. A really honest guy and a very fair marker. Intimidating at first, but once you get to know him, he's a really nice, educated dude. Sometimes a hard marker, but the real prize is the amount you learn.

The best teacher I've ever had. Mr. Ornstein is the reason why I am where I am today. I always looked up to him in highschool, and whenever I see him I thank him for being such an amazing educator. If you're reading this and you have class with Ornstein, cherish your time with him b/c you'll miss it

Get out while you still can...If I left it up to him I would still be in high school. Luckily I took english again second semester..did the same amount of work but pulled off an awsome mark and am doing great in university. He has favourites, and is not fair at all.

He is one of the best teachers in the school. He gave so little work, but you learn so much. You would never do anything on fridays, but play scattergories XD His classes are fun (especially with his "pointing device") and his teaching method works very well.
