I took biology and chemistry with him in 11 and 12 so I got a good taste of late nights and giant homework packages. My mark in first year UofT chemistry was higher than the one I got in high school! What's up with that? The difficult realization that you have to come to is that while he is extremely tough, he actually cares about your knowledge. I still consider him to be the best teacher at VRA. (I got my PhD in molecular biology this year so I have some appreciation for what he's done for me).

He's one of the funniest teachers around. Biology is always interesting, especially with the tangents. Yeah the tests and labs are brutal, but that's bio with Reiss.

Knows his subject well and is extremely dedicated. I can't thank him enough as an IB graduate. Anyone who has him, has enough appreciation for hard work to have made it to grade 11 or 12 IB.

Some students don't like him because they are LAZY and do not want to learn. If you don't like him and don't appreciate how lucky you are, when you grow up (if you ever do) you will appreciate him. he is brilliant!

I absolutely detest his class. He is a very smart man but it seems his passion is not teaching. He is very condescending and not helpful at all. I don't like his crude remarks and his temper is awful. Failed scientist? Maybe.

Greatest biology teacher. People who think he's hard aren't working hard enough. He was the best IB bio teacher and if you deserve it, he'd reward you. He took our class on his first field trip in 15 years b/c we deserved it.

He needs to learn how to help the people who need help, he brushes them off and focuses on the people who already know what to do!

Just teachs students whom he thinks could handle him. He does not encourage anyone else.

He KNOWS his stuff. He's very hard, but his high expectations motivate you to do well. You definitely learn something in his class, not to mention the laughter.
