I had "Mr. G" way back in 2003 @ Center High.
EASILY the best and most engaging teacher I've ever had.
I am actually the guy behind writing his theme song, "Lovin the Physics".
I am humbled to know he still shows it to his new students.

The best teacher I've ever had; his positive personality makes class so enjoyable. He made physics, something most kids despise, one of the best classes there could be.

Mr. Goldthorpe create his own workbook and it is just so much more practical than the textbook. I used to hate physics so badly until I ran into him. He knows what he is doing and he loves what he is doing. Although exams created by him can be a hard but they are super reasonable. Anyway, he is not only a great teacher but also a role model, a man who I can look up to. I feel beyond lucky to have Mr.G as my teacher. He's AWESOEM.

Mr. Goldthorpe is, without a doubt, the best teacher I have had. He sparks my own and the whole class' interest with his humorous, physics related stories. So passionate about what he does and really supplies you with the resources to succeed. His compassion and urgency to help us learn is compelling and inspiring. If you are lucky enough to get Mr. G as your teacher, do not take it for granted. He is an intelligent, hilarious, amazing guy. Thanks Mr. G! (Lovin' the Physics!)

Mr. Goldthorpe is the reason I love physics so much. He taught me Science 10-1 AP and quelled my fears of high school. He is deeply knowledgeable, dedicated to his work, and always happy to help. One of the best and hardest-working teachers I've had.

By far the best teacher i've ever had! Never have i seen someone so passionate about teaching others and making sure everyone understands. He does so much for his students and spends so much of his own time perfecting his lessons and making them funnier and more interesting but most importantly he makes his lessons super easy to understand no matter how hard the material is ! wish i could have had him throughout highschool and JR High. It was an honour to be his student!
