Wagner's class was very entertaining with all of his funny impressions and jokes. However, his class was very difficult. The tests and essays were very difficult for me to adjust to. I studied at least a week in advance and ended up getting a low to mid b on them. I began to adjust and score much higher on them later on. He's a good teacher, and I ended up getting a 4 on the exam. If u study hard, do the homework assignments, and don't get on his bad side, you should be fine.

Wagner is definitely one of my favorites from every teacher I've ever had. He is absolutely brilliant and diligent. While his lecture style may bore some, paying attention makes the class fun. He is passionate about his class and prepares you well for the exam. As long as you do your homework notes (which can be extensive) and listen in class, you'll be prepared. He offers amazing after school reviews and even helps kids not in his class. Always honest and thorough in helping. Wonderful + funny

So he knows all the material inside and out. Great. But he's pretty terrible at teaching. Literally every class (now with the block schedule) is a grueling 1 hour and 30 minutes of lecturing. He was fun last year, at least a little bit, but now he's moody and gets pissy over the smallest things. To pass with an A, you definitely have to haul some *** and read everyday, and suck up to him. His tests are like right out of the book, and he grades essays, in my opinion, according to how he likes you

One of the hardest teachers at Dulaney, but at the same time, one of the most knowledgeable. You really need to know the subject matter to pull an A in his class. His essay grading is UNBELIEVABLY TOUGH and his multiple choice exams are pretty hard too. In my opinion, he overuses the textbook.

Mr. Wagner is an arrogant egoist who will tube your child's GPA under the guise of being "challenging." Beware. He believes his own hype. Our child consistently pulled disappointing grades in Wagner's class, and then made excellent grades in college. And it's not because of Wagner's teaching, which amounted to 99.9 percent lecture and a boring, overblown book. Tons of homework. Sucked the fun right out of the subject.

Mr. Wagner is probably one of the best 3 teachers at Dulaney. His class really isn't that bad if you put in a lot of effort and study for tests/essays. Hardest part is definitely the essays/DBQs but he's great in preparing you for them but is a tough grader which ends up helping you become a better writer. Great teacher. Take his class!

John Wagner. A man who cannot be summed up in a few words. He is the man everyone wishes to be in life and teaches the only class you will never think of sleeping in. His puns are a sort of... magic in a sense. His every word will captivate your very soul and bring you back in time to every drop of sweat, tears, and blood in history. When you sit through one class of Mr. Wagner, you will forget everything else in life. The only things in the room with you will be you, your desk, and Mr. Wagner.

He's a really good teacher, but he's extremely arrogant. He acts like his class needs to be your number one priority and that all your other classes come second to his. Still, he's 10x better the teacher Skelton will ever be, so I'm glad I got him.

Wagner is the greatest teacher ever. He's extremely knowledgeable, funny, makes the class interesting, and really helpful. He makes sure everyone is prepared for the AP exam. He actually makes me want to show up to class every day. The class is not to tough if you do your homework and study. Wagner is the best.

Mr. Wagner is some sort of deity. Demigod? He gets so excited about what he's teaching, which really draws you into the lesson. The essays are probably the hardest part, but it's great practice.
