Mr.cobbett was one of the worst teachers I've ever had. I have an anxiety disorder which was only made worse by his inappropriate attitude towards students and the way he mocked us. If your not one of his favorites then good luck passing his class .

I really appreciate Mr. Cobbett's high standards and the quality of education he delivers. Really! In American History, I felt useful and successful while working hard to get good grades, whereas in other classes, you don't have to work as much (or at a higher level) to earn good grades. It seemed like a fair, well structured challenge, and a greater quality of work was instilled in me. If you work hard, he'll like you and you won't think he's a meanie :)

COBBETT RULES. Do your work, ask him how to improve it, and be a good kid. He won't just throw out the 90s (or even the 80s), but if you legitimately work with him to improve yourself you will be golden. Sit back and enjoy the class!

He is the best teacher I have ever had. Although he is tough, it was his style of teaching that has prepared me for university. I found that the lazy and unmotivated kids were the only one's who seemed to have issues with him. I found him very smart and funny, but mostly very passionate about what h

Mr. Cobbett is a great teacher with very high standards. It is the lazy, unmotivated studnets that seem to not like him. He prepared me very well for university. His energy, enthusiasm, sarcasim and love for history made his class a blast!!!

I won't deny that he picks favourites, but this has yet to affect his marking as his favourites tend to have some of the lowest grades in his class. Great teacher.

He wasn't my favorite teacher. I know many people loved him. But for me I did not enjoy his class at all, and actually never took a history class again - maybe because of this.

Expects a lot, and picks favourites, that's for sure, but also a fun and interesting person to joke around with. Is honest, real, straight-up and reasonable w/students, which is a rare quality imo.

Mr. Cobbett was my favourite teacher last year! He's incredibly smart, and is willing to help as long as you ask for it. He's a tough marker but not too tough.. I got over 85% so he's not THAT bad

He prepared me for Uni-the marks I got in his classes are reflective of what I have here. Although he did pick on me a lot-twas all in good fun! And well, I usually started it!
