I didn't do too well in his class when I had him because I didn't do my best. But looking back at it, you can never dislike his teaching skills. His tests are word for word what you learn, and his notebook handouts and powerpoints are all carefully crafted by him. Extremely intelligent. Has very high standards for his students and works just hard as they do. Can be fun. And as mentioned before, he does have a soft spot - you'll see what I'm talking about if you take his class. Which you should.

He's pretty funny and cool for the most part. However, he does have a loud voice that gets into your head and he WILL blow up on you if you cheat. His tests are difficult and people tend to get mediocre grades on them. One thing wrong on your notebook and you don't get a stamp. He does have a soft side and it shows a lot of times; he's basically like a father and he likes when people participate. He's a really good teacher, the class is just a little hard. He also shows lots of videos and music.

Mr.Oberacker is an awesome and very strict teacher. He teaches his students to be responsible for themselves and his class is meant to be challenging. He makes is own lessons, tests, quizzes, everything. He is also very funny and a jokester :D. Mr. Oberacker is one of my favorite teachers and his class is very helpful and fun!

Mr. O is a great teacher. He is really passionate about history and he also really wants to help the students. He is probably the best teacher I've had at Los.

Mr. Oberacker is portrayed as a very "tough" and "unfair" teacher at times by his fellow students but personally, Mr. O was very easy-going at times and very helpful for he offered us tutoring and various tutoring techniques that would guide us into captivating the information in an easier format. I miss Mr. Oberacker :( I loved his class, although I did only have him for World History Honors, and I heard AP Euro is a complete, different story.. but still :) one of the best teachers on campus.

Lecture and notes are organized, lot of work, and great teacher overall. I honestly thought Hawley prepared everyone better for the AP test but I had Oberacker back in 2007 so he might have changed

The type of teacher that kids these days are deprived from! He knows what he's doing and has an air of professionalism. In the end, you'll realize that he cares. Mad respect for Mr. O.

He's an amazing teacher! If anything, he cares TOO much. If you're in his class, you might think that AP Euro is the most important thing in your future. Mr.O teaches us that it's only the first step.
