Had him 5 years ago. Nearly flunked, and he told me that if I continued to be this way in college, I'd fail. Luckily I paid attention and got it together. His class was easily the biggest prep for college. Lots of people say he doesn't grade clearly, and a lot of professors won't either. He won't tolerate late work, attendance is mandatory for a grade, and detail is important. Doubt he's softened on that policy much. Put in the work and you'll pass and be ready for college life.

Mr.Brachetti is a very bright man who might not be the easiest teacher in the world but he really makes you look at both sides of arguments to think about more than we usually do when it comes to a argument. I feel people give him bad raps because he is kind of a hard teacher. I feel he gets frustrated at students because they are not stepping up to the challenge and people are putting up the bare minimum. sadly he has moved to Brentsville High School

Mr.Branchetti is THE WORST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD. He makes you feel so stupid, he grades work on an unfair scale, never returns work, takes forever to grade things, and plays favorites. If you are not a girl, you will not pass this class, because only girls are his favorites. He is nothing close to resembling college professors, and I would know because i am in college now; Which he told me I wasn't good enough to get into my top college, which I attend now. He is a TERRIBLE PERSON!!!

This teacher does absolutely nothing to help students get good grades. He delibarately hides papers so he doesn't have to grade them, plays favorites, and doesn't allow students to make anything up regardless of legitimate excuses. He acts like he is Jesus, always right and never allows students to get their point across.

As a person, he is really nice and a mindful person. However, he is a terrible teacher and continually plays favorites. I will give him credit for the effort he puts in to help students, but his advice is never satisfying. He expects too much out of his students, and it's almost as if he hides work from them. To succeed in his class, you must act as a kiss-up. Not to mention his grading style, it's very odd and not something easily understandable.

1.Knows a lot, but expects you to do most of the reading/learning.
2.Kind of biased looking back, focuses more on certain political themes than others.
3.Very nice person, though. If you are struggling, he will try to figure out why. I respected that.
4.If you didn't like him, you probably won't like college. This is how nearly all college teachers are.
Overall very mixed bag, but he does a lot to prepare you for college. Most high-schoolers will be caught off guard, though.

Worst teacher ever. DEFINITELY plays favorites and never changes, is completely unclear on all instruction, and never gives back any work so you have no clue why you got a D on an assignment. Also takes forever to grade things. just UNFAIR

I had Mr Branchetti for 2013-14 school year. He is a very incompetent teacher and VERY unorganized when it comes to teaching. He also has a mean-streak in him. I don't see how he passed becoming a teacher, because he has no credibility of being one.

I don't know why Mr. Branchetti got poor reviews. I think he is a very clear and helpful teacher. I'm a senior in his AP English class. He's tough, but he's fair. He also makes learning fun and gives us very mind-provoking assignments to do. He encourages variety and student interaction. He's patient and never yells and also keeps up with his podcasting. I'm currently doing great academically in his class with a B average.

I had Mr. B three years ago. To date, best teacher I've had. He makes kids go outside their comfort zone and think beyond what the average teacher requires. Definitely the most powerful teacher.

If you have the option of taking his class run away, and fast! The main issue is the AP tests, which are graded numerically instead of on the ap scale. Prepare for a 60 when you probably got a 3 (84)

mr. branchetti was my favorite teacher throughout all of my high school years. perhaps his lectures (that you guys hate) stem from the lack of effort your class puts into each assignment/essay.

Better person than a teacher. Doesnt take criticing but gives it. Doesnt specify on how he grades papers or grades in general so he leaves you out in the middle of the sea of zero's that are to come.

I think Mr. Branchetti does a great job, and he really pushes you into thinking a little. That might be too hard for some of you. (Hint: Blame yourself, not others. And study!)

Amazing teacher. Low rating because people don't like to use their brain in public education. Gets you to think outside, and pushes you. My best teacher in HS, carbone 2nd.
