08/29/14 - I'm in a top tier college now, thanks largely in part to Mr. Crowell. He helped me with applications, scholarships, financial aid and most importantly he believed in me when most teachers didn't. He is a different type of teacher, but great! Show More Show Less

04/04/14 - Mr. Cowell was a really good teacher. It should be noted that the negative review below are during 2013. That is when Mr. Cowell was going through BPAR. BPAR is a program that turns good teachers into bad teachers. BPAR failed us, the students. Show More Show Less

02/14/14 - My favorite teacher is Mr. Crowell. He is a great teacher because he is nice and cares for his students. Mr. Crowell is one teacher that will listen to his students and help them with problems that don't just include his classroom studies. If I ever need to talk to someone about anything he's always there. Mr.Crowell will be greatly missed this school year. He has been with Berkeley High School for many years and is very deserving of this honor. Show More Show Less

10/26/13 - He never showed up for my AP US history class. We literally saw him around 7 times in the first month of school. I think he just teach a current events class. NOT an AP class. I truly hope he doesn't come back. Mrs. Coppola saved us. Show More Show Less

03/14/12 - Very nice guy. The kind of teacher that accepts that some kids want to learn and others don't. If he thinks that you just don't want to learn, zone out and get a B. If you're interested, talk to him and get an A. He's actually quite knowledgeable and very sharp. His teaching style is VERY lax, but not to the point of being unprofessional. He covers the material and makes it interesting, but don't expect him to be like your other BHS teachers. Show More Show Less

03/09/12 - Mr crowell is a nice guy but his ideas are out there and he basically just reads the textbook in class. You can learn a lot if you listen to what he says but it's not necessarily going to be on subject. If you are independent and can read and study the text on your own you'll be fine. He's easy but not a great teacher. Show More Show Less
