Hands Down Greatest Teacher Ever! He is so relatable and might need to be hired by Dos Equis for most interesting man in the world. His stories are enthralling. He even allows students to sleep in class, but no matter how tired we are, we don't because he is just that entertaining. The class itself is extremely hard, as AP Euro Tests are ridiculous, but Mr. Madrid will help you in any way you can and his teaching means you are almost guaranteed to get a 3 or above on the AP. Amazing Teacher

Hands down, THE BEST TEACHER AT TROY HIGH SCHOOL.
He makes it so fun and interesting, you WILL learn stuff. He was the only reason I looked forward to school for the first few weeks of the new school year. From fun if useless cocktail party information (CPI), to his legendary exploits at Troy and abroad (ask him about the time he climbed the pyramids, the 75 theses of troy, or snuck in the senior yearbook photo), class is never boring. Also, is a communist. How could anyone hate this teacher?

Mr. Madrid is still the best teacher I've ever had, even two years out of college. He made AP Euro enjoyable and easy to remember. Just make sure you study for the test and pay attention in class (how could you not -- his lectures are 10/10) and you'll do fine both in his class, and on the AP Exam :)

after getting straight-As all my life i was enrolled in AP classes when i started at Troy. one of which was "non-western civ" with mr. madrid. this class made it clear that i couldnt "coast" to an A or B anymore. i really had to try. i loved being challenged and i agree with the person who said that he/she never looked at the clock in his class. mr. madrid is the best teacher that i have ever had. he always said he was going to name his first son "xerxes", i REALLY hope he did that.
