This is simply the worst teacher and the worst "director of student life". He is unaware of how to do is job. I have taken my child out of this school simply because of his inability to do his job.

im not a favourite because i was caught eating in class... other than that he is a good teacher, although the tests are hard to get a good mark on. Also we were always the only class to write an essay at the end of our tests, that didn't help the overall score ;(

Very hard marker, but gives virtually no homework at all. Sometimes a bit annoying, especially all the essays

not bad... you need to figure him out sometimes... he's not good to have when the marks really matter... just because he's the bball coach... THAT means nothing... NOTHING in the classroom...
