The actual love of my life! Greatest teacher ever and made my junior and senior year the greatest!! Super helpful and understanding and definitely the funniest guy I've ever met! If you don't get home during high school I'd just drop out because he definitely made my high school experience worthwhile

(AP US History) Without a doubt my favorite history (if not every class) teacher I've ever had - I love his sayings, teaching method, and logical explanations. He's also hilarious; and the fact that his tests are easy as long as you pay attention is a huge plus. Overall, would recommend.

Listen, if you are just taking an AP to take an AP, it will be a loooooong year. But if you show that you genuinely care about the course and him for that matter, it will be one of the best years ever. He is very understanding and very funny, but don't try to be a wise guy with him, he will HATE that. Overall a good teacher and an AMAZING teacher if you play your cards right.

Mr. Schwen was my teacher a few years ago in high school and I'm seriously compelled to write a review for him because he still is better than any professor I've ever had, and I go to a top tier college. People like him are rare gems for an academic institution, especially because he makes it seem so effortless the way he teaches. Super organized, cares about his students and doesn't teach useless stuff. SCHWEN FOR PREZ

I had him for AP micro and AP Gov and he expects a lot from you, (especially in AP Gov) you must do the readings to do well on the tests! The first quarter is definitely the hardest in micro but the textbook is very helpful! He is very lenient.

Schwen is a fantastic teacher. Micro may be a bit harder with him, but his charisma, humor and intelligence will have laughing class after class. Never a dull lesson with him, he can be just as curious about learning as his best students, always eager to know more about whatever he is teaching. One of the greatest teachers I've ever had, I can safely say.
