BEST TEACHER I EVER HAD!!! You will absolutely love him and all his quirks. Plus he knows his stuff, and his class is super relaxed and fun. I learned so much from him, I wish I could be back in that class!

The best teacher ever. Of all time. Had him for honors Chem and the foundation he gave me got me through AP chem the following year. And he's hilarious. Made my sophomore year bearable.

4-6 years when I was in high school I had Mr. McGrath twice for homeroom monitor and once for chemistry. He's an amazing person full of insight. All 4 of my siblings have also had McGrath as a teacher. He will not only give you the foundation introduction to Chemistry, but bring you into a relaxed and safe environment in his classroom, which is much needed at Shanahan, which is notoriously strict and uptight. Don't leave Shanahan without having the best teacher they have to offer!

i'm not very adept at chemistry, and because he understands it he's not very good explaining it to a chem ignoramous like me. But he is the most entertaining and fun teacher, really interresting <3

McGrath is the coolest/best teacher in the school; however, he repeats his stories constantly and most of them seem to be made up. Always tries to get the classes against eachother
