Mr. Ames is a very clear and nice teacher to have, if you know the basics of the class he's teaching. Otherwise, he will make James cry. I recommend Mr. Ames to any student who would like to have a good understanding of the Sciences and the English language.

He's definitely not the type of person that everyone works well with, although he is certainly knowledgeable about the subjects he teaches. Considering I do work well with him, I really enjoy all of his classes, and while he is certainly not a teacher everyone will love, I most definitely do.

Mr. Ames is super awesome, even though he is really strict. I love him at times and I hate him at times. He is super smart and he knows the answer to any question.

He plays mind games with his students. Students are not aloud to question him on mistakes that he makes. His students are fearful of questioning if something is marked wrong or he is wrong. Refuses to answer a parent when questioned about a mistake

He was overall a good teacher but he was very strict about homework and sometimes on tests were things we did not learn, sometimes not even about the subject we were learning/class. It could be a bonus question on languages if he was teaching Science.

Mr Ames, He is scary and fierce and takes advantage of his terrifying reputation. His classes seem random and fruitless and he is strict in a seemingly sporadic fashion. However, he teaches to those who listen. I was foolish enough to be deaf to this whilst under his jurisdiction, for it wasn't until I graduated that i realized how much i learned. Turns out it was a lot. Thanks.

prepares you for university, very strict yet will make time to help you outside of class, after school, lunch etc. As long as you put effort into his class and dont goof off you should be fine.

FOLLOW THIS ADVICE: Don't fall asleep in his class. Don't text. Don't whine. Don't look down at your paper when he adresses you. Don't be late. Keep all of your CueCards, and STUDY for his final exam!

Mr Ames is brilliant and LFAS is lucky to have him. He forces you to work a lot with quality in mind, unlike other teachers. He runs a hard curriculum, but its by far the most interesting.

It's been 12 years since I was in Mr Ames class. Even as a near 30 year old I shutter at the thought of him. If you are top of the class you will do fine. If not.... there will be no intrest or help.

Mr.Ames is a great teacher. in grade eight he enjoys to intimidate his students, but it pays off because in grade 12 you respect him. Great history teacher and really prepares you for History with the huge essay you write
