Extremely good teacher! I currently am an AP Physics teacher because of how much I enjoyed his class. Yes, he's difficult, but it will pay off when/if you take physics in college and are able to do well while the rest of your classmates are lost. Teaches at the highest level. I have no regrets taking his class.

One of the worst teachers I've ever had. I dreaded his class everyday and struggled very much with the way he presented the material. Very smart guy, but he does not know how to teach kids. Was never clear on directions, and never taught us anything that was on our tests. More than half of our class would fail his tests because he never taught us useful information. He spent the majority of our classes talking about himself, not physics. He's a cool guy, but hated him as a teacher.

Literally hated him. Worst teacher I've EVER had, and I took his Honors Physics class in 11th grade. It's really telling when the entire class cheers and high fives when they find out there's a sub. My friends and I constantly joked/complained about him and would tell our other friends to "run if they ever got him". He didn't explain much or was super confusing when he did, made us try to learn a lot on our own, and took up soooo much class time for arbitrary nonsense.

One of the worst teachers I've ever had. Would give you a graded lab, would not help you at all, then would teach you what you needed to know after you already failed. Heard he used to be good, but had a whole personality change this last year. Maybe you'll have better luck.

Well. Mr. Davis sure is a different kind of teacher. If you're looking for an easy class, don't take one of his. He does seem pretty knowledgable in what he teaches, but he's a real pain in the butt sometimes. I never thought I'd write an essay or do a 20 some page lab in a science course, but guess what, we did. Aside from the classroom, he's a pretty nice guy. YOU HAVE TO MEET HIS CHILDREN. THEY ARE ADORABLE <3 His wife is also very nice:) Overall, he's a good guy.

B Davis was one of my favorite teachers!!! I enjoyed every min. of his class! He is really smart and knows what he is talking about! His class isn't the easiest, but it is a ton of fun! I would recommend him to anyone!

my child struggled with this teacher. he was not clear in his explainations of assignments and workload. I would like to know the average score of his final exam. Several students I spoke with did not score a C or above. This reflects directly on a teacher and his/her ability to educate the child.

Mr. Davis is so cool. He is so smart and knows everything about physics and science. B Davis's class is average in the difficulty level. He is so funny and eats everybodys food everyday. He is a school favorite and he loves all students. HIs class is definitely a high point of the day. He loves bikes and always relates the particular physics lesson to his bikes. He speaks spanish fluently and sometimes feels the need to teach en espanol. Just married some paraguayan woman.
