I have mixed feelings about Ms. Dyke, she's a great teacher if you are a smart person who is good at her subject. She teaches ICS and I had her in grade 10, which I enjoyed and got a good mark in, however in grade 11 she went crazy and refused to help, if ur a smart kid to whom ICS comes easily you'll still do well, however I was finding it increasingly difficult, she decided that I wasn't trying for some reason and started to act like she didn't like me, even though 90% if my time was on ICS

Her lessons are often after the assignments you do, which encourages students to explore on their own. Super supportive and acts scary but is super nice even if you hand in work late. Sometimes she acts crazy and not helpful because she wants us to think on our own and do better, but most of us are cool w it.

She is probably one of the best teachers in the tdsb. She is a great teacher and I probably learnt more from her class than any other class. She is always straight up and if you ever want university advice or life advice she is the best person to go to because she won't sugar coat anything she is straight with you. I would give her a perfect but the course is really hard and the exam is harder, I would give her a perfect for clarity but comp. sci. is way of thinking that can't be fully taught.

She is probably one of the best teachers I have had. She always is helpful unless she wants you to learn a concept on your own. Also she is respectful. The minor down side is that she is not easy. But this is actually not bad because you can learn so much from it. Awesome, and smart as hell.

I absolutely love her class and the way she teaches it. Sometimes it's irritating that she won't help, but I guess its preparing us for university so... But overall she's just amazing. Difficult course if you fall behind a bit, but still amazing.

She is a good teacher, though my rating might say otherwise, because of the nature of the course she teach, it's a lot of independent learning and if you are bad at computer science then you are screwed, but the course is really good and I recommend people try it. The assignment deadlines is strict for grade 9 but for grade 11 and 12 you usually get opportunities to redrop your programs if she hasn't started marking. Though she is very strict on ISP deadlines and if it's not there it's a zero.

She will help before and after school but if you live far away and have a job you are messed. She takes a lot of marks off if anything is late and her tests are as she puts it "a pill". Have fun and good luck!!!

She's cool, teaches well, gives a lot of homework, gives help when you need: before school, after school, teaches in a fun way, easy marker for assignments, but tough on tests and monthlies. Easy to get 90+, if you do your homework.

An average teacher at best. Gives the illusion of being very in control of her subject, but is rarely capable of giving a direct answer to a direct question.
