Jeff Swegarden is one of the greatest teachers I have had in my high school career. He is a very nice and caring man, but his tests are impossible. His literature class will most definitely ruin your GPA. Very fun teacher to have, but in the end the tests will destroy you. I had him two years ago and it was overall a great experience, if you disregard my grade.

I loved Swe. Very engaging teacher who made it fun to learn. While AmStuds is not an easy class, Swegarden definitely made it bearable. He and Schmitz are perfectly paired. Hilarious and knowledgeable. I highly recommend taking Amstuds. It's a class that you'll miss when you leave.

Second year in a row I've had him - He's not very clear with his assignments, but he makes it fun and if you listen it is possible to have fun and do well. Sparknotes do not count.

He's so cool and nice but intimidating at the same time, which is good because he can teach you a lot. His class was very hard though. An awesome guy
