The problem with Mr. Karagianes is that he perpetuates the idea of science being an elitist subject, just as the entirety of the Mira Loma Science Department does. The pedestal that Mira Loma Science Olympiad is placed upon in his and all of the other science teachers' classrooms, alongside the incendiary remarks they make on English, History, and Religion, and outright favoritism they show to the most science-oriented students and those who make the class look easy, is quite honestly a shame.

Hard class. I studied really hard for a test and got a 60%. Can't hate on the teacher though, I learn a lot in his class. Just his tests are so tricky and that early in the morning....ugh.....

Easiness is okay because it's a HARD COURSE TO TAKE. Karagianes is an amazing teacher though. He's funny, very knowledgeable, and I look forward to his class more than I've ever looked forward to any

He's a really good teacher if you're enthusiastic about science. He also has a lot of really interesting stories, but he does get mad a lot and plays favorites

Funny, and he knows bio very well, but confusing and unclear. Felt like we were never actually being taught. One of the most overrated teachers at ML.

Mr. K knows a lot about biology-- however you wouldn't know this because he spends most of class reminiscing.
