this teacher cheats at marathons and also he told students if they give negative reviews he will fail them. Not sure if he was joking but scared me. I waited until I graduated to post this. He also told me he can get negative reviews erased. I'll see if mine gets erased. that's not right that my boyfriend said he posts his own reviews.

Never have respected a teacher more in my life. He is very cultured which helps with his lectures and the subject of human geo, which is generally very boring but he is able to turn the most boring of subjects one that eve I will stay up and listen to. He is very entertaining and never fails to make me laugh. The things he tells us and the way he carries himself really motivates me and others alongside me to not only be good students, but to actually be good people. easy a too :)

Knox is my favorite teacher so far during my high school career (currently a junior). He is VERY funny, and the CHILLEST teacher you will have. My advice would be to really PAY ATTENTION to his lectures. I honestly barely studied for the AP test, but I got a 5 because I always payed attention to his lectures. Try to connect his lecture with things you know in life (sounds weird, but got me a great grade and score).

Amazing teacher. Took AP test and actually understood over 65 of the questions out of 75. Not only is he a nice person in general, he is a great teacher and wants you to understand this. The extra credit makes some people mad, but if anything it is an AP and it is a great way to make sure that your grade is stable. As long as you pay attention and do the little homework that is present in the class, you will be completely fine. Overall, loved the class <3

favorites students over others. gives students extra credit ....but unequally, not fairly people who dont have time or money to spare dont get around 500 points of extra credit. he also lies about the the extra points value. ex:he told everyone that one can of vegetables is one point, that lowered the amount of people wanting to buy them, but on the day he posted the new grades, he raised it to around 150. plus he acts like he knows the culture and actually mocks it

Had him for both World History and Human Geo AP, and I must say, he's probably ranked high on my favorite teachers ever. He's really entertaining, helps you understand, and is sort of harsh sometimes, but it's because he wants the best out of you. Don't take this class for granted. You'll wish you'll have him in the future after just 1 class.

Cool teacher. He's really willing to accomodate reasonably. He printed out a bajillion pages of notes for me because I never did for myself. Offers plenty of extra credit (real or not...) and is really clear... But not clear enough to teach sleeping students. Stay awake unless you plan on studying at home.

He's not a bad teacher for both World History and AP human geography. Both are note taking classes, so it's probably not bright to sleep. However, APHuG does get boring at times and I have fallen asleep, but he tries to joke a whole lot and keep people awake. The movies he shows are absolutely amazing and I loved them. If you study hard in this class, there is no way you can't pass this class. Don't fret if you don't do well on test because he does curve the test. Hardly any homework; very easy: just study

the thing about mr. knox is that he's a friendly teacher. he jokes alot and really connects with his kids. he can sometimes make rude remarks though, but that's just how he is. now if you are the kind of person who studys, then this is the class for you. knox rarely gives hw, but he gives out quizzes daily and tests frequently. the quizzes are based on the chapter sections in the text books, so it's an easy a if you read the text! you must also listen to him and pay attention to the videos. he's the best (:
