It is a challenging class but he is a teacher that teaches you valuable skills to further develop your wriitng.
best english teacher. bald. fun and nice and teaches you a lot
He can be a harsh grader, but he's easy to relate to and honestly one of the best teacher's I've had.
He is a fun teacher who makes class interesting, but isn't always clear with assignments. Grading is a little hard.
In 2008 Mr. Petruso asked me to stay after class and speak with him privately. When we met, he gave me a copy of a Portishead cd he had burnt and told me that he thought I'd like it. I did. Best experience I had with a teacher at HGHS.
He's a nice guy, but I hate him as a teacher. He is never clear with his assignments, and he has lost several of mine and marked them as zeroes in the past. He is also a very ridiculous grader, and does not seem to offer any help to his students nor does he seem to care about how they do.
I loved Mr. Petruso's English class he is a great teacher.
In terms of grading he's ridiculous. He doesn't really help you to improve and doesn't pay attention to any students except his favorites. I learned very little from him.
I was having the worst English experience-until I took Petruso's film study class. For once, he appreciated my writing style and listened to my point of view. I worked hard nd got a good grade for it.
Ghandi!!! I hate english, but this guy made it my favorite class. That doesn't mean I got a better grade though.
Way good teacher. Knows his stuff, very engaging, fair grades.
He acts all nice in class, but when it comes to grading, he is one of the most rediculous graders I have ever had. He is a very unfair grader and very hard.
I like his shaved head. He knows the answer to all of our questions and he is good at explaining things and making specific references to the text. His quizzes are not too hard. - "The Man"!!!!!!
I love the man, but the class is iffy. Psych-lit assignments were unclear and harshly graded for little things sometimes, but hard to hold it against him.
COOLEST MAN ALIVE. Funny, interesting, his side-kick (miller) could use some work but P-money RULES. YOU WANT PETRUSO FOR ENGLISH!
