Since all of these reviews are pretty outdated I thought I'd contribute. I take APES with Mr. Rice, so I can't speak for the bio kids, but APES is probably my favorite subject. Mr. Rice is cool, chill, and very funny. His labs are always very interactive, and not very challenging. His exams are a little difficult, but he makes up for it with test corrections. Overall a great teacher and a pleasure to be around. Make sure to sit in the front of the class, otherwise you will have trouble hearing.
Never had bio before, but biology with this guy is a nightmare. He never teaches... EVER!!! He only assigns homework and expects you to learn from it. The labs you do are absolutely pointless to the class, and the test are impossible to get an A on considering theres always at least 2 question hes never talked about. All in all, worst teacher ive had EVER
It has been a few years since I had Mr. Rice, but, while he comes across as boring at first, he is actually very funny and absolutely worth getting to know better. He was definitely one of my favorite teachers from high school.
I had him for Geosystems freshman year, but now that's a defunct class. Every one else thought he was reeeeally boring, and I could see what they meant. His voice sounded monotonous and his appearance didn't really help disprove this, but I really liked how he had a lot of passion for rocks (RAWWWWKS), and he was really into interjecting Delawarean facts into the lectures. That was pretty cool. I had a lot of time then, so I mostly learned from reading the textbook though, and he just reviewed.
MR RICE IS AWESOME best teacher ever i love lab asisting for him
He actually says some pretty funny stuff if you don't fall asleep while he's talking
can be boring, but i enjoyed his class, freshman year
really friendly and funny guy, but when he teaches it can get pretty boring. Tests are sometimes kind of hard especially if you don't pay attention.
Great teacher, but so boring...also, tests are a little overkill.
mr. rice is a good teacher but the subject of geosystems in freshman year is terrible he is a good guy though.
Say what you will about Mr. Rice's teaching abilities, he is without a doubt, the coolest man alive.
Talk to him outside of class, and you will find him to be the funniest adult in Charter.
i love mr. rice. he was my freshman yr chem and geosystems teacher. he was my hmrm teacher for 2 yrs. hes awesome. really funny guy. has gotten much better over the yrs. class isnt too hard. nice to talk to. friendly. c/o 05
Pretty boring. Let's you do the HW in class most of the time but the way he has it set is tedious. If you want the same old, without a doubt take his class.
Mr. Rice is a great teacher. His classes may not be the most intresting all the time, but they're definatly better then they could be, given the subject.
Mr.Rice is by far my favorite teacher. The class can be a tad boring though because rocks are definately not my calling... =)
mr rice is awesome! he's a really good teacher and the hands on stuff is really great!!
Oceanography takes a lot of field trips and does interesting work...geosystems was slightly boring, but he makes Ocean fun cause the kids wanna b there.
He is a nice guy, but he doesn't teach much. He gives lots of boring labs and computer lessons w/o an explaination. Most tests are on things he didn't cover.
mr rice is cool! sure, the subject itself is hard...but he could make it harder...but he doesnt....hands on activites rock!!
Hes really nice, but geosystems is really boring and i have never been good in science, so i don't really do well, but otherwise he is helpful and a nice person
mr. rice is awesome, and really nice....plus, oceanography field trips...need i say more?
Everyone who disses Mr. Rice are total jerks. He loves what he teaches and does his best to make it clear to his students.
You can tell he cares and that he thinks geosystems is interesting but he tends to forget that others don't. It's a boring class but it's not unbearable.
this poor guy tries so hard to interest the ppl but what's to like about rocks? really boring, but really nice...
Mr. Rice is pretty cool if you talk to him. And I can sleep through the entire thing and get an A. Meets all criteria for a good class.
Mr. Rice is perhaps three times as cool after you're out of his class.
I have to say that the class is a bit boring. I can't see how people complain about the final, though. I got a hundred on it, and I didn't even skip Math I!
Hes a really nice guy and i like him for that, but last year i took geosystems and it was so boring and unclear
This poor guy. His students walk all over him, but he tries really hard. He's very sweet and he does care.
There are two words to describe his class: BORING and unavoidable. Everyone has to take it, sadly.
doesn't really teach and usually allows classtime for homework. Allows u to use notes on quizes, but not tests.
dull class, not much teaching, final is half stuff we didn't learn, but he's so nice i can't hate him without feeling like i'm kicking a puppy or something
lets just say that you could run around his classroom jump on his back and spontaneously combust and his facial expression wouldn't change
