made history the most interesting class ever. i loved him so much - taught the work in a fun and engaging way. tough to get super good grades in his class though. consider yourself lucky if you have him for history

On the one hand, Mr. Petrusa is very positive, willing to help you, and encouraging. On the other hand, he does not have lessons that are planned very well, he is an extremely and ridiculously hard marker, and he seems quite condescending most of the times. Our whole IB History class ended up with 85s for midterms, accompanied with his patronizing praise. We also took 5 identical notes on only the successes of the League of Nations, which lasted for probably 2 weeks. Not a favourite.

He's a really nice guy, and he definitely knows his stuff, too. Made history kind of fun, and I learned a lot in his Gr. 10 course. Sure, he may not be the easiest marker, but he doesn't give you pointless homework. An understanding and awesome person: one of the best history teachers in the school.

PetruSHA! I love him so much, what an awesome guy. Marking was completely fair, though he doesn't like perfects and will take off 0.1 of a mark. =D He was funny and enthusiastic, great notes, fair tests, knew his stuff. Perfect combination of lax and strict.

Peter Petrusa was the best teacher I ever had. He was always helpful, always smiling, and he's one of the reasons I'm so excited to be a high school history teacher. Go Petrus! You're the man. <3

You cannot argue with him. He's always smiling (which is a good thing) He's very nice, so there's no way you'll be able to argue with him without feeling guilty. Not an easy marker

BORING! This man made me HATE history. I have never had to endure a class as boring as his class. His assignments were so pointless. He was nice though.
