03/20/14 - AP Lit sucks. I used to get As on my essays and now I barely pass. He does not even write comments and you have to go wait in line during breaks to have him give you feedback. The only skill he has is using good vocabulary. It's all a facade. Show More Show Less

03/13/14 - Other 9th classes get to do fun projects and we are stuck reading and answering study questions. And we are almost done with vocabulary when the other classes are only half way through. Boring class and boring teacher who does not care about students Show More Show Less

03/13/14 - How it is possible to have earned As in every English class at WHS and be nearly failing in AP? He is aloof, condescending, and thrives on ruining students' chances of attending amazing colleges. Do not take AP until the teacher is replaced. Show More Show Less

08/26/13 - What can I say? Well done, Ordonez, well done. Hands-down the best high school course I've ever taken. I joined the class and was initially extremely intimidated by his intellect, not even the course, just Ordonez himself. Thus, I was determined to drop the class and transfer into a mediocre English IV course where I was guaranteed an easy A. Little did I suspect that he would actually put the effort into convincing me to stay in his class. Lesson learned: he really does care. AP LIT 2013. Show More Show Less
