I took into to computer science. You go in liking him one day and hating him the next. He only actually taught lessons for the first half of the semester, and then after we got our midterm marks he just sort of stopped. If you don't know how to code you won't get a good mark and you'll be stuck asking other people for help. If you do ask him for help, he just gives sarcastic answers and treats you rudely. He can be sometimes funny but that's the only good thing.

I hated this guy. Took Computer Science. Lessons made no sense, all of them were just him typing code while everyone tried to understand. If you try to ask a question, he gives a sarcastic response that angers you. The more people asked questions, the more sarcastic he became. Makes nerdy references to random things, which made people uncomfortable. Most assignments were you talking to others for help, instead of him. Concluding, if you know how to code, have fun. If you don't, it's gonna suck.

It's been like 10 years now, but this guy was the coolest teacher. I took several classes with him. He supported my wacky ideas and was fun to engage with. I used to draw "deathcrabs" on everything. He liked them. He drew one in my yearbook in grade 12. A memorable guy.

He is the nicest teacher and the most helpful when you are having trouble. He always shows up to school positive, and i've never seen him flip out before.

Very enthusiastic and knew what he was teaching. Always had time to help students either with extra work or with catching up.

Great until i had him a second time. Wasn't at all helpful bc he was too interested in the programs of the genius students. Nice guy, but not the most structured and consistent teacher.

Mr Young is a nice teacher but some times not helpful enough.... some of the things he says are funny but he is a little bit of a nerd (que the 10 year old arcade stories and nerdy refrences)

Easily one of the greatest teachers there. If you get to know him better then he turns out even more cool.

I think Mr. Young doesn't read our assignments, and he acts like he hasn't prepared for class. I don't think he likes what he's doing and he takes it out on us.
