Best teacher I have ever had, and best at OPHS. Had him for AP Euro my sophomore year. Actually challenges you to think and motivates you to do your best. Doesn't care about you getting the perfect grade (like most teachers at this school), cares about you gaining knowledge. He's also hilarious! He pushes you because he genuinely wants you to do well. Helped me get a 5 on the AP test. So grateful to have had him as a teacher!! Everyone should take a class with him before they graduate.

Best teacher I have ever had. Encourages students to formulate opinions by attacking them from all sides. Any student who dislikes him probably is incapable of defending an opinion they may have. Hard teacher but he is always available to help. Hilarious! Just don't be late to class, and be prepared to back up your opinions with facts.

He is not a good teacher. He tries selling himself to his students and many got tricked by his sales tricks. Don't like him that much.

As cool as Kinbargo is, it doesn't compensate for the amount of work that is assigned. He can be funny at times, but he seems to forget his students are human, and that we do things other than homework outside of school. Tests are impossible as well.

Mr. Kinberg is the ALL TIME BEST TEACHER, smart, entertaining, who will enlighten you!!
Negative reviews are for the bias reason that Kinberg's classes-unlike most the other classes in High School-require hard work. If you won't put in the work :(

Not a good teacher. He is unintelligent and thinks that he amazing. He likes to make kids uncomfortable and his tests/quizzes are impossible. If you are unfortunate enough to have him: WRITE IN YOUR JOURNAL! He talks to down to his students.

If you don't like spoilers, don't read! At first you will be scared so you study so much during the summer you thought that you will be so prepared, then you get wrecked on the first quiz by letting you draw the euro map. starts reading your paper out loud, but he still gives full credit. Then he starts lecturing and you think that he rocks. You will love him, though he gives you super hard quizzes. Later on you will find out that he is an idea-forcer and hate him. At last you think he's ok. GL

Mr. Kinberg has opened up many more gates in my ability to write good papers. The exams start out near impossible but soon you get the hang of writing them. He has a great sense of humor and the only people that are unhappy with him are the people who do not take of their mask in class and open up their inner self.

His curricular is hard. But these students that are speaking of his character negatively are merely closed minded. He teaches an English class that I never had. But his film class has completely changed my outlook on life. I have learned so much about his personal life, and I've learned so much about myself. Mr. Kinberg tells it like it is, and it's always right. He is by far the greatest person to go to for advice. He's a great teacher, and probably an amazing parent.

By far the greatest english teacher of all time, he truly cares about each individual student. You change so much in the course of his class as an individual and as a student. The English class he teaches is very hard but rewarding and not a day went by where I wasn't laughing at his great sense of humor or him playfully making fun of everyone in the class. Overall, my experience with him was great, and he is the best english teacher i've had to date.

There is not a day in his class where my stomach does not hurt from laughing so hard!!! He can turn a serious subject and make it funny. We have the most awkward conversations in that class....he is such a great, and funny teacher and I am going to miss having him as my english teacher next year!!!

Hilarious teacher, some kids laughed s hard they fell out of their seats..thus you can easily pay attention, and it's fun too. However, his quiz questions (quiz everyday) are often impossible to answer even if you read the book (often asking about symbols and "representations") An extremely fun class; easy to get a B but EXTREMELY hard to get an A

I'm one of the few that dislikes Kinberg. He was a good teacher but a lousy person. Seemed to favor the football players (maybe cause he coached them).
