All he does is read the packet all day. Extremely hard to learn that way. Bad teacher with a horrible attitude.

Some of these reviews are ridiculous. Mr. Willats is one of the most knowledgable and enthusiastic teachers at PHS. He really cares about the subject matter and about his his students. APES was one of the best classes I took at PHS, and I passed the AP test after studying for it.

this guy is by far the worse teacher I have ever had. He is extremely lazy, and is super forgetful. He has lost so many papers and scantrons belonging to not only me, but numerous other students. He is always late and angry. Never hire! Fire!

Doesn't update grades...I'm not even sure he even grades everthing. He is a cool enough guy and he knows his stuff, but isn't grading part of the teaching "gig"?

Does not explain certain things in class because he "gets confused when talking about them" (e.g. the coriolis effect). Did not prepare us for the AP test, spotty coverage or material at best.

Quite a knowledgable teacher with a clear and fair way of teaching. His tests are difficult and homework assignments are very time consuming but the way he teaches really makes you learn a lot.

It's a lot of work, and we take lots of notes, but he makes really funny jokes, and is an extremely wise, knowledgeable and helpful person who really cares about teaching. Study a lot for the tests!

For apes: The class is pretty chill, not usually much homework but it's long when it's assigned. Also, community service requirement is a hassle. Tests are ridiculously hard even with studying.

I liked APES but didn't learn that much. Turns out I wasn't well prepared for the AP exam.

Willats is cool, but after the first couple weeks APES got so boring, I can barely stay awake. He's a cool guy though.

Ditto on the jig. I liked Mr. Willats a lot, but he doesn't explain things very well. But the class was fun, for sure.
