Mr. Payne is my favorite teacher of all time! He makes class fun and exciting and I actually found myself looking forward to science (which I normally do not like at all)

I was expelled from Carondelet because of this instructor. I never received help as he focused more on his AP students. I struggled with the labs and in general I whole heartedly believe that I was on his black list. He is very good with his experiments, seems to love going to the extreme. Yet, it is hard to keep up with an instructor when they don't apply experiments to the actual calculations that are necessary to pass the test. Good luck if you have him as an instructor. God bless...

Almost didnt graduate because of this man. Harder then college request DLS and take AP at DLS if you think your good but DO NOT take this man. Funny but he is devil incarnate in grading.

He is one of my favorite teachers because he always keeps class interesting. His grading system doesnt benefit a struggling grade.

Love the labs and you learn a whole lot, but his grading system sux. Be prepared to do horribly if you like to figure things out on your own.
