Had him for political science. I should've gone to microeconomics instead, waste of time and he keeps trying to shove his political agenda down my throat despite claiming to be "fair." Btw study for the AP test on your own, no way you pass with him

Mr. Manzo's class is very amusing and fun and all. However, he barely teaches and barely prepares us for the AP test. If you have him, be prepared to study on your own. The test is a lot of material, its impossible to be prepared with just a class, especially if you have him. Very nice guy though. Generous with grading despite how difficult his tests are.

he complains about not having enough time to finish the curriculum, but it takes forever to get past one topic .... he's probably the funniest teacher i've had, but he needs to teach at a faster pace

Mr. Manzo is my favorite teacher. He's the nicest and funniest guy you'll ever meet. The only problem is he gets sidetracked and sometimes forgets to teach.

He probably had one of the MOST entertaing classes I have ever experienced in my life. While at times we moved a little slow, didnt have any tests, had to HAND WRITE our outlines, it was still a great class and i feel that I have learned so much. Plus we did GREAT on the AP!
