Mr. Stonehill has not prepared us for the AP exam at all!! All he does is give out useless papers and assign group work that does nothing in preparing us for the exam. His exams are off-topic and he doesn't even make his own powerpoints (which are useless anyway)!!

Stonehill is the best. He only has one freshman class and some people are like, he doesnt teach and hes annoying. Theres once he subbed for my friends class, who has Mr. Omalley. Her reflection was that Stonehill had taught her more than what Omalley did this whole year

i don't know why Stonehill gets such a bad rap. I've learned SO much from him this year in AP World, way more than I did freshman year. He really, truly cares about his students. He goes over every test, question by question, just to ensure we understand it all. He even throws the occasional joke in there. I say, don't listen to the naysayers, and keep doing what you do best!

He's eh. I mean he has an obvious spark in teaching his presentations, but when it comes down to reviewing all the information he kind of slacks. Nonetheless he teaches with enthusiasm.

I had him as my teacher for freshman year and I'm going to have him next year for sophomore year. Make sure you pay attention to what he says in class because his tests tend to include information he never put on worksheets (he gives a lot of worksheets btw) or powerpoints, but something he'll mention or say in class. His tests are easy once you understand the structure. It's always always has multiple choice, a map, matching, and a timeline. He's not the best teacher, but he's okay. Good luck.

Mr. Stonehill talks a lot...I mean A LOT!!! Also, he hands out a lot of worksheets, more than he actually teaches. I am passing his class with a grade above an 85%, but that's because I like social studies. If it I didn't I'm sure I would be failing his class. He's also kind of weird. I wouldn't feel comfortable in a room alone with him. Overall, as a teacher I would rate him 2 and a half out of 5.

He cant teach, he does so many stupid simulations instead of attempting to prep us for the AP World exam. He's not a good teacher, and he spits when he talks, and he gives so much extra credit. Good luck

Had him two years back. Gives too many packets that are useless. Never teaches. You just waste time from day 1. His packets are not effective at all and the textbook is confusing. Although he is a nice guy, he is the Worst teacher I've had in my life!!

He doesn't teach. No. Let me rephrase that. He has no idea how to. If you get him, I suggest that you buy all the ap review books that you can because he teaches you how to write the AP essays two days before the test without any prep on anything. His advice for our essays on the test was-- You guys are good at BSing. He gives so many homework packets and doesn't collect them ever. He shows movies or has a columbus day trial or "a Pretend World war II" because he doesn't know how to teach.

He doesn't really teach he just gives a lot of worksheets/ packets in class. His tests are usually pretty easy, but they are always based 98% on the textbook. Just read it and you should be fine. He gives a lot of extra credit, but he forgets a lot of things (like emailing hw or something)

He's okay. A lot of learning is done at home in the textbook, which is very boring. He does teach a seperate topic in class, and his tests can be a bit much. Overall, he is nice. I like how we watch documentys a lot in class!
