He is the goat of teaching. Truly made the class fun despite my crippling depression he himself created with the hellish workload. Just kidding!

Slept in class from time to time and got a 5 on the AP exam. Procrastinated with every assignment Lillis gave out and didn't start until 2 A.M. the day it was due. Still did fine and managed to pick up enough from his lectures to do well on the AP exam

Hard grader but prepares you best for the exam. For AP there is a substantial workload and it can get stressful, especially for procrastinators... Makes good use of humor in class and is very helpful as long as you ask and stay after. Very glad he is the teacher for AP world otherwise a lot less kids would score well on the exam.

AP World history with Mr. Lillis is very hard. His tests are hard and so are his quizzes based on the textbook readings. But he prepares you very well for the exam. I didn't do too well in his class but I still got a 5 on the exam.

The best teacher I had in high school. I am currently in college, and he prepared me so much for college classes. If you want an idea of how College classes will be, take his honors class.

One of the best teachers I've ever had. He is very tough in grading, but it prepares you very well, especially if you are taking the AP. On top of this, he is funny, and will clarify if you have Q's.
