Mr. Koch is honestly one of the best teachers in the history department. He makes class interesting, engaging, and fun, is very flexible and comprehensive with homework, and was always a delight to have a conversation with after school or during CT. He tends to be extremely sarcastic, so you have to have thick skin in case he picks on you. But, if you have a question, don't hesitate to ask him! If you study well, there's no reason you won't get an A.

Great teacher; enjoy talking with him outside of class. His tests are incredibly long and quite difficult but if you take notes and stay on top of things you will be able to get A's. He's funny and clearly enjoys teaching and getting the class involved in a discussion. He does lecture quite a bit so make sure you write everything down!

Mr Koch is probably one of the best teachers at CHS. I had an emergency with my AP exam last year and he helped me through it and that just proved his dedication to me as a student and a person. He was going through some rough family stuff last year but still came to school happy to teach and invest in the students. He taught me a lot about history in an effective lecture fashion and I would recommend him!

Great teacher, a lot of fun. Super sarcastic with a witty sense of humor. Usually teaches in a way in which students can connect. 10/10 recommend. If you're taking World Civ 1, you are blessed. (well not blessed the class is hell but at least he makes it pretty fun). You really don't use the textbook except like once at the beginning of every unit. As long as you study for the tests, you should do pretty well. The questions are usually right from the homework.

I had him for world history honors, he's so-so. Not too hard, but not too easy. He's really funny and relaxed so the class isn't too uptight. However, he doesn't prepare you (atleast for me) for AP.

i had this guy the very first year he started teaching at chantilly (02 - 03) for world 1...he was pretty funny, but the thing that really annoyed me was having to do those lame presentations for the class. no one did a good job cause we didn't care, and i never got any useful information out of them. still got a decent grade out of the class so whatever. p.s. - if you want to hear a funny story, ask him about the time where he almost ''died''...he'll know what you're talking about.

his class is awesome, and he's an awesome teacher, but you won't be prepared for AP world at all. I barely did any work, but always got A's. He's really nice guy too, and will help solve any problems you have, just in general. He's also more aware than most teachers about how much pressure we're all under.
