I do not attend Forest Hill anymore, however... Mr. Dawson was one of the best teachers I ever had. I loved how chill and understanding he was, we could talk about anything together, especially our love for the Flash TV series. He is one of the best teachers I ever had, and cannot stress enough... I completely recommend him.

Mr. Dawson's science class was a class I always looked forward to. Aside from generic curriculum textbook work, he gave out some of the best hands-on building projects ever. We have also had some great class discussions with him. Great teacher and great guy. Phenomenal class if you like more hands-on projects.

Very good and helpful teacher, and yes, although he does tend to get off topic a lot with the class, I find that he is a teacher who finds a good balance between textbook work, in class projects and exams. He is very fair, and is reasonable with due dates and other such things. My favourite teacher by far at Forest Hill!

Gives us textbook work and shows us a lot of YouTube videos. I spend a lot of time at home looking up stuff that he did not explain in class. There are more interesting interactive lessons online for me to do. He has his favourites and seems nervous around me since I ask a lot of questions. He laughs a lot in class.

He was very knowledgeable, but could quickly get off topic. He showed us YouTube videos that had very little to do with what we were studying. The tests were taken from the textbook's teacher guide, and you had to go through the textbook on your own time to know what was on the test. He would just tell you when the test was, and it was your responsibility to learn everything. We would often get in-class projects, which was great, but we never ended up getting to finish them. Okay teacher overall

To anyone who still has him for grade 7 or 8, do not take him for granted because by the time you get to high school, you will realize that even though he can get off topic, favour people, or any of that stuff, he is amazing!!! He is the heart of the school and I miss him so much <3
