After taking other teachers' bio/science classes, I realized that she's actually not that great. She just seemed like a good information donor at the time because she was more organized than some of my other teachers. But now I have seen that she's not as amazing a "teacher" as we all thought.

Mrs. Attridge is one of the meanest and rudest people I've ever met. Every single chance she can get to insult someone she will take. She also doesn't just pick on the trouble makers but also the kids who just aren't that smart and need a little extra help and encouragement. However, she is a very good teacher and her notes are done extremely well. If you don't mind being insulted and put down every day in her class than I would highly recommend her.

At first glance, Ms. Attridge may seem very strict and uncompromising. But if you get on her good side by doing all your homework and behaving in her class, you'll be just fine in her class. She has a high degree of knowledge in teaching her classes, especially biology; so you'll learn lots of new things in her class. Be wary of asking her too many questions, you may be picked on by her for the rest of the semester. Overall, if you study hard and stay out of trouble, you'll survive her class.

I love mrs.attridge she is the best teacher ever and is very smart and she is only ''mean'' to kids who act up in her class so do what she tells you and you'll learn to love her.

She's a really good teacher; puts alot of time and effort in for her students and her lessons are really detailed and really prepare you. But she's honestly a horrible human being. Incredibly rude, unprofessional at times, picks on people, calls people out in front of the entire class, makes you feel horrible about yourself, is extremely ignorant and narrow minded... I could honestly go on. If you can deal with the emotional toiling, she's great to have to prepare you for uni

Okay, honestly, she is good at teaching but she has a very bad personality. She will make you feel bad for the simplest mistakes that you make and makes fun of many students.

I love Mrs. Attridge! She is the most understanding person if you get past her scary sharade. She is extremely funny, nice, and surprisingly patient. If you ask her for help she will help you. She is also extremely fair and she prepares her students to succeed in all tests, exams, and most importantly, university. :)

I really wish I had her for IB bio, she actually takes the time to develop a lesson plan that covers the IB assessment statements and ensures that you are prepared for the final exam rather than giving you excess information and missing out on necessary topics. She's actaully really funny too xD I like how strict she is and how you have to earn her good favour :)

She may seem really really really rude, super strict, and unbelievably hard, but those are all rumors. She's actually really nice to her students if you can get on her good side and you can do that by participating in class discussions (easy). She's only strict because she wants all her students to do well so she gets mad when we don't do very well. Lastly, she's not even that hard if you keep up with homework every night (or so) and study for the tests/quizzes.

She is an ok teacher. She teaches lessons well, but she isnt helpful at all when you ask her questions. She treats you like you are stupid if you ask her anything and gets angry when you dont understand. Her tests are hard. She is grumpy. But she teaches good lessons.

not a bad TEACHER, but her attitude does leave a bad inpression. She picks a few students to hate on all the time, and she is had to talk to without her dissing you in some way.
