Hmm. How do I begin. This teacher not only did not teach us in depth of the curriculum but also very rude because he would occasionally bullied his students if they did not know the answer. He did not get mad if u slept in class but if you whispered you would get called out. Interesting. When asking questions he gave very vague answer and really did not answer your question in the first place. we had to learn 5-10 section per week so about 3-4 per day. Lesson were copied pictures of textbook.

Mr. Arko is the worst teacher I have had. He cannot solve any physics questions without the help of the solutions sheet. He makes a mistake every lesson and example. His teaching style is horrendous and will make you fall asleep. If he were to take his own class he would fail since he does not know anything but to look at the answers for help

My daughter had this teacher for grade 12 chemistry. She is now a 3rd year science major in university. She had to teach herself chemistry as this teacher was ineffective . Once in first year in university she fell behind because mr arco did not go into the necessary depth required. She needed tutoring to help bring her up to the level she neede to be. My daughter had a 95% average in high school and is very bright. All this could have been avoided if did his job.

I had Mr. Arko back to back semesters for grade 11 and 12 physics. The way the class works is if you don't do your homework every night, you will do bad. I ended up with a 75 in grade 11 with a 65 on the exam and an 80 in grade 12 with an 83 on the exam. Although the tests were difficult, it really taught me to be independent and work hard on my studies. Arko's class isnt easy and you have to work hard. Although he isn't the best teacher, he is very kind and is always there to help you in need.

coming from an honour roll student, this class was extremely difficult, very easy course to fail. his teaching style is extremely boring and voice will put you to sleep every single day. I spent more time figuring out how much longer til the class ended than doing work or listening to his "copy and pasted textbook" lesson

The kindest, smartest gentleman anyone could want as a teacher. He should be the head of the department because he knows chemistry, physics and biology as well as any teacher that has taught me - ever

He is very amazing at Chem. The thing is that he is not so good at teaching it. I think all teachers should have a friendsly bond between students. it seems to me he just does what has to be done.
