Wonderful teacher if you can follow him! He works hard and expects the same of his students. It's hard not to pass unless you just don't show or jus don't work. He gives extra credit for coming and doing well on the final. I actually considered studying chemistry thanks to the Ishak! Decided to teach though.

I currently have Mr. Ishakis in his final year of teaching before retirement and I must say this has been a whirlwind. He is an utter and complete storm. He is either content or upset never happy.

I am currently in his chemistry course. His class has done wonders for me and I'm not even done with high school. I honestly feel bad for the future students. He is retiring this year sadly. =(

He was an okay teacher. When he explained something, he went really deep so you could understand. However, he would explain a concept 2 weeks after we turned in the homework on it.

I loved Mr. Ishakis's class! He was challenging, thorough, held high expectations for his students, and was funny. I graduated in 1993 and still consider him to be one the best teachers ever!

Ishak was one of the best teachers at Renaissance. Even if you don't understand Chemistry while in high school, you will still learn a lot from his class. You will appreciate him once you take college Chemistry. :-) 2003 Grad

My 9th grade IPS teacher and 11th grade Chemistry teacher. I achieved B's and A's in his classes. He taught well and prepared you for college level courses. Good sense of humor.

Mr. Ishakis challenged me the most in high school and continued to be a motivating factor in my college and graduate school success. 10 years later, I still thank him.

Excellent teacher! Taught me dimensional analysis, greek alphabet, chemistry and more. Able to convey complex ideas in simple terms. Do you know what a mole of Ishakis's is? I do!

He's a Hard Teacher, but a cool friend. After going to college, I can see that his hard lectures paid off.
