Barnett is an AMAZINGG teacher. I loved having him because he actually made a topic i loathed into something fun and interesting. READ READ READ to pass his class. Also do test corrections. May be a hassle but worth it in the long run(:

Mr. Barnett is probably the best teacher at OHS. He makes world history soo fun. The workload for the class is a bit tough, but its worth it. He is hilarious, and often makes random noises and movements. Ask him to do his impersonation of sputnik. Its so funny. Tests are hard, but he is awesome!

he doesn't really teach. prepares you well for the workload (all of it is just busy work) for other AP's. Not a difficult class, but teach. Did fine on the AP exam but not really because of him.

He gives too much work, way more than you will get in college and more than any other high school in Seminole County probably. However, his students have the highest passing rate and he prepares you for other AP and college.

He's really a good teacher when he lectures, which is sometimes rare. I got a 4 on the AP exam and a B in the class. Just do your work, you'll be fine

Overall he is a cool guy always willing to help out. His class is hard though, but its been proven that more of his kids pass the AP exam than the national average.

Mr. Barnett is an awesome guy, he was funny and entertaining, but the work is ridiculous and I think he may have lectured like twice the whole year. So he doesn't teach, which will hurt you on the actual exam.

I had Mr. Barnett my Sophomore year... I thought he was awesome. His class didn't make much sense but, he was interesting. He amused me.

Barnett is NOT a teacher. He is more like a babysitter/entertainer that hands out books and a bajillion worksheets and expects you to pass demonic tests. He is a funny guy, I'll admit, but that doesn't teach a class anything. I dreaded this class everyday until my mom made me drop the course. (thank you mom!) The lectures and actual teaching rapidly dwindled to nothing throughout the year. I don't think that "teacher" and "Barnett" should be used in the same sentence. I hated that class.

I only suggest AP world history if you are willing to work. But i do believe the class prepares you to AP classes in the future. Down side of Barnett-doesn't teach!!! But he is a funny guy

barnett is a pretty cool guy. I mean he doesn't really teach but he's entertaining. he's the weirdest teacher (as well as laziest) but that's his teaching style. he makes history interesting. his class is a bunch of work but u can just make up stuff and his tests are hard, but just remember to always ask questions! he never reads your work except for the first time. i wish he taught more and he showed us better/more educational movies

I highly recommend AP world history. It is a TON of work but will get you very prepared for AP courses your junior and senior year. Mr. Barnett will keep you laughing too. Only take this class if you are willing to work.

While Mr. Barnett's class is really hard (I'm in his AP class), he really cares about his students. Because of his class, I'm considering History for my major!
