James Farrell is one of the best teachers to ever grace the halls of Walt Whitman High School. His lovable plaid shirts, his American flag elephant, and his sarcastic and funny tone were the highlights of my high school career.

Easily the best teacher I've ever had, he makes sure students understand it's their responsibility to learn in preparation for the AP. He doesn't spoon feed you but he gets his points across. While his exams are hard, he gives assistance through his fantastic extra help sessions. Very entertaining and compels your attention as a student. I could not be more satisfied with his teaching.

By far the strangest teacher I have ever had. His class is difficult but he makes it bearable. He also gives lots of helpful info. regarding life after high school. In class we talk a lot about SATs and colleges and helpful life advice. He's very funny and his class is comfortable.

Hard teacher, but it's a good thing. Lot's of work, tough tests, but you'll pass the AP and love the class at the same time.

Great teacher. Knows his stuff and makes the whole learning process enjoyable. Strict but fair. If you fail, he's one of the few teachers you'd never even think to blame.

I hated Farrell in middle school but when I had him for AP Psych I came to love him. It was his first year doing AP Psych and yeah he had to rush through to get things done, but if you stayed with him then it really wasn't bad.

I think Farrell is okay. He's funny but often crosses the line and becomes obnoxious. He has huge mood swings. Gives unfair tests.

Doesn't write any notes-writes an outline and expects you to write his notes on your own time. Wastes a lot of time too
