I had him for human diseases and it was my favorite class. he's hilarious and has the best stories and I looked forward to class everyday. STUDY for his tests because they can be really difficult, and make sure to participate in class. probably one of my favorite teachers at this school.

Mr Citron is a very good teacher and Human Patho is really interesting, but his tests are insane. Everything else is great, but his tests are not.

Amazing for Human Patho. Exams are challenging, homework is pretty easy, rarely do we hand it in, only discuss it. Mr Citron is really nice, teaches well and will help you improve your grade.

He is really funny and his jokes are the best but he is so bad at teaching. His slides are disorganized and he often forgets to teach us stuff. He tells us to read pages of pages of textbook for homework but doesn't teach anything on the textbook for class. His tests are difficult and are filled with confusing questions and spelling mistakes.

What a character! He is a teacher who you will certainly not forget.
You will have a good laugh every class with him.
He gave a bunch of work first semester but then pretty much stopped.
If you pay attention in class, you will do well on the tests.
He also took us on a canoeing trip on the Delaware River which was amazing.

Mr. Citron is easily the best teacher I ever had. I took APES. This is a man who truly passionate knows the material, and beyond. He also lives what he teaches : he is vegetarian, he bikes to school, recycles. He is also HILARIOUS, the class was a 45 minute comedy. I had him 2nd term senior year, and hes is the reason I stayed in school until 9th pd. He struggles with chronic disorganization, and his tests can be hard but if you like the topic, you will love class. He is my inspiration.

This will be my 3rd and last term with Mr Citron. He can be inconsistent in his teaching, but generally is a very good teacher. However, there is way too much homework in AP environmental science and he tends to misplace student assignments. However he knows his stuff and more. Not a great class if you're counting on getting a high grade. Funny guy though.

Funny teacher but gives WAY too much work at random intervals. Don't take AP Environmental as a junior. It has the potential to fu#k up your average. He takes his powerpoints and tests from random online sources so studying and taking notes are a waste of time. Sometimes you'll do well and sometimes you won't. Great class for a senior to just trololol.
