Initially thing werent going too good in the beginning of the semester. But, as time progressed Mr. Orff became better. He allowed test corrections and made the lives of the students in AP world easier. However, throughout the entire process he was a hassle. He just needs to understand that if he made teaching more fun and got students involved then many kids wouldn't be failing.

He is the worst teacher i have ever had. I have never made below a B+ in a class before and I made a C with him...barely. Most of the kids around me all have failing grades. One kid got an A. Mr. Orff doesn't even try to help you. He just gives you this 'don't mess with me,kid' look. No matter how hard you try, he views you as a nuncance. Oh and don't EVER expect to get ANYTHING back on time. We got our first essays from september back the week following Thanksgiving break. Good look on the exam

Beyond awful. This is supposed to be an honors class, yet its my hardest one. His idea of teaching is writing 4 words on the board and rambling on and on...GET SCHEDULE CHANGE IMMEDIATELY, THE OTHER HONORS TEACHERS ARE MUCH BETTER

Orff daddy isn't as bad as he's made out to be. He sets aside time for you to talk to him and knows a lot. His reading quizzes and essays are the devil though.

Orff is the least compassionate teacher I’ve ever had. Orff cared more about history than his students and his anger toward them was horrid. From picking targets to his constant use of intimidation, this man was a cold bully to his kids. His class is almost all notes with a few boring videos. I actually got an A and never clashed with him too.

Gives lots of work. It's almost like an AP class. Do the reading, and take good notes. You will really have to work for an A

Orff obviously needs to go back to school himself. Harassing students and assigning cumbersome packets, by the way, he doesn't even read what you write on them, is very unprofessional. Being a college student now, I can look back and say that he may be "cool" to some students, but he does not prepare you for college in any way.

Even though theyre time consuming, his packets really bring up your grade and plus... he lets u eat the lemon drops he has on his desk. Pretty cool teacher but doesnt let u eat/drink in the classroom.
