I love his class. He works hard with students who don't understand the curriculum. He is a teacher who definitely has made an impact in my life and my high school experience. Would definitely recommend.

By far one of the best teachers to ever teach at Independence High School. Pay attention during lectures, participate in class and attend study sessions and it's an easy A. He somehow gets you to learn all of the content with the absolute minimal amount of work (like no hw). Greatest thing about him is that he cares about you, he knows when to joke and knows when he shouldn't step across a line. Forgiving and is in a good mood a majority of the school year, really glad I got him twice.

Grades are based mainly on test scores and a few assignments. Tests are EASY, because he has study sessions a few days before, so just ATTEND those and study what he gives you. The rest of the class is mainly of him lecturing, which is pretty interesting if you choose to listen. A lot of students tend to sleep in class, but his stories are interesting. It's one of those classes that are easy but that you also shouldnt take advantage of and just try to listen to his advice/stories here and there.

Too much story telling. He needs to give more Notes so that his student would actually have something to study before a test.

he's not that bad. talks a lot and we don't learn much of the text in the classroom. you have to do a lot of studying on your own to prepare for the test. However, the class gives me a good laugh.

It seems as if he has difficulty creating a challenging curriculum, and his methods of teaching are poor. Grades are sometimes based on favoritism. He's okay.

His class is EXTREMELY dull and you will learn NOTHING in this class that will help you on your AP test. He means well sometimes but confuses you more.

Mr. Kirk is unique in that he's as cool as a moose and yet highly intelligent and a dynamic teacher.
