Mr. Payette is a teacher who grows on you, not only as the class progresses, but even after graduation. Initially appearing as somewhat odd, you realize later that his teaching style is intelligently

One of my favorite teachers and classes I had, even though I had no interest in science.

Hes funny, but a waste of effort and time. Most of the class now is videos, notes, and some daily jokes. He often very vague about the deadlines for work. Plus, the work he assigns is mostly busywork.

Great teacher. I have graduated for 4 years, and he is the first person who comes to mind when I think about Mission. He is a great grandfatherly gentleman, and I do like his style.

Really funny/great guy. Overall a pretty easy class. If you actually sit down and do all the work he assigns you'll be moderately prepared for the AP exams.

So what if he doesn't lecture much? It's an AP class and this is how college profs teach. You study on your own and the teacher answers questions. You actually learn a LOT if you do all his work.

the only reason peopl like him is because he's easy! however, he gives a lot of busy work and he barely teaches. you have to study a lot for the AP bio test to make up for the lack of learning

easy to get A in class but that won't help for the AP test. apbio class is expensive and extremely wasteful. need to buy $30 worth of supplies(ie dividers) that u never get back.

Anatomy was a bit challenging and extremely time-consuming. Lots of busy work, but you DO learn if you are interested in the subject. Slackers beware. Go Mr. P!

Payette is a good teacher. While all the other teachers care so much about when assignments are due, he doesnt care, only worrying about whether or not we learn

One of my favorite teachers at Mission. Lot of work in his class, but you usually get decent grades just for completion. Funny guy. Relaxed class.

Mr. Payette is an amazing photographer. As a science teacher, he lags. i HATE his finals. The slide show that takes up HALF the testing period doesnt relax us

Easy class, he's a riot. He's very knowledgable but does not like to teach much. A lot of book work (unclear when most are due). He's very cool about late work.
