Alumni here. Some current students might not see it in the short run, but Richard is an invaluable educator. He has a deep enthusiasm and love for Biology, formidably teaches the material and his passion led me to medical school. I heavily regret not appreciating and properly paying attention to him and his wise words.
"This is life, this is us, appreciate it." - Richard Turner

He is a knowledgeable science teacher but the way he teaches things is not good. He just expects us to read an assigned textbook page and then we discuss what we had read. That is not an effective way for us to really know the topic by heart.

He probably used to be a great teacher but now he just seems tired of teaching and can't put up with the slightest bit of disruption in class. Makes too big of a deal over nonimportant things, and his teaching style really just doesn't work for me.

He is a good teacher but because 3 people or so talk out in our class he neglects and treats all of us like delinquents, he also makes haiku really confusing and marks hard, just not good for grade 9 level science maybe IB1 or IB2 but not grade 9 - he wants us to act like we are at a university lecture lol

Mr Turner was one of my favourite teachers this year. He helped me a lot and always showed me my strengths and weaknesses and of course helped me improve. I cant wait to have him as my biology teacher. He is my favourite teacher! Hes been at the school for a long time and even though his tests are hard they help us prepare for the future and he provides so much knowledge to us. THANK YOU MR T

Great teacher, awesome dude. Funny. Marks extremely hard, but you just have to get used to his style, then a little hard work can get you 6/7's easy.
