09/17/14 - If I had to use one word to describe Mr. Washburn, I would have to say erratic. Some days his teaching skills are decent with a touch of comedic elements, but some days he just seems like he woke up and is high on something strange... Sometimes he is just one mean guy who bothers you for something little and somehow he is easygoing at the same time. Erratic HAS to be the best word to describe him... Show More Show Less

07/21/14 - He is the worst! He picks favorites and is creepy to the girls, and I literally did not pay attention at all in any of his classes and still got an A in his class. If you just read the textbook over once and never look at it again...you're fine. Show More Show Less

08/05/13 - I had him for AP Gov Pol and got a 5 on the exam without any outside studying. Without a doubt, if you do the assignments, PARTICIPATE IN THE CLASS DISCUSSION and not be rude, he will have no problem with you. It is not hard to get an A in the class, I ended with an A- because I screwed up a few quizzes. He is very understanding, a very engaging and interesting teacher, and has a nice sense of humor (a nice break from the drag that is all the other classes). Show More Show Less

09/02/11 - History was my highest grade until I had Mr. Washburn. When you ask him a question, he gives you a 15 minute response, but avoids giving you an actual answer. I found all of his classes pointless and a waste of my time.I'm a Show More Show Less

03/06/11 - APGP is a horrible class. The debates are boring. He picks your side for you, which makes you unenthusiastic, plus you can only speak once. That will make you unexcited and he will berate you for that.
He goes off on tan
