Do not take this class unless you plan on failing the Ap test. He spends most of class talking about his life and then crams in the lesson in the last couple minutes of class. If the Ap test was on the life of Frank Barberia I would have aced it, but sadly it's not.

Ok heres the thing. Mr. Barberia does go of on tangents but he also does his job. The subject itself is dense af and without him throwing in anecdotes, you'd drown. If you read the textbook and take notes, you'll be fine. Audio learners do great in this class. Looking back on last year, and what I'm doing this year, he helped a ton. I've never felt so prepared in my classes and thats because he makes you a writer and a thinker. This class isn't for everyone but you CAN pass the AP.

Barb is my favorite teacher at bhs and one of the nicest guys you'll meet. His class everyday is just him lecturing on the material then going off task "digressing" and talking about his personal life for 40 min. The same thing happens everyday and then he complains about being behind. Its hard to get anything done in his class but i always have a good time cuz he's hilarious. Im gonna miss his class next year. Merci

He is one of the nicest teachers in the school, and easily one of the most (unintentionally) funniest. But you will only hear him talk. If you need hands on learning to thrive (worksheets, projects) you will probably not do well. This whole class is just lecturing, and he expects you to take in every detail. He will digress too. A lot. Just be careful.

Mr. Barberia is a great man; he clearly has a vested interest in his students' success. At times, I felt that there was a gap between the curriculum and the daily agenda. He digressed quite a few times, and that took away from his teaching.

Mr. Barberia. What to say about this teacher? I'd like to begin by saying that I was an A student in his class. But he taught me nothing. I only got the grade I did because I studied and reread the entire book myself.

Mr. Barberia is great. He definitely knows more than the textbook and understands how difficult the context is for sophomore students. Many people complain how he doesn't teach them anything or get them ready for the AP test, but I think the history is just too hard for us to understand completely. European history is simply a complex subject, and therefore, many people cannot comprehend all the events of who did what. Barberia tries his best to get us ready, though, and he's an awesome teacher.
