Bain was by far my favorite teacher this year. I have him for APUSH, and he's made this the only history class I've ever actually been kind of interested in. Since it's APUSH though, he has to move really fast, and the tests are hard. He gives plenty of time for assignments, and usually gives everyone 100s on these since he knows we all fail the tests. Overall, the guy knows a lot, and he's really chill, approachable, and funny. Can't wait to have him for psych!!!

Mr Bain was a great teacher and I learned a lot. Tests are ridiculously hard though, but the entirety of APUSH is that way. He's super chill and nice

He is a good man, but a little lazy. Does not update the portal and does not take time on grading things

He's a fantastic teacher (had him for both APUSH and Psychology) and a great soccer coach. His tests are easy as long as you are good at studying. Overall he's a great guy.

He's an awesome teacher. If you have him for APUSH though, you're going to have to do a lot of studying on your own. His tests are hard. But he's awesome. I love his stories; i think he tries to make class as fun as he can. He doesnt offer extra credit (for the most part). And I wouldn't have political arguments with him. Overall he's a chill guy.

Mr. Bain is awesome! He is easy to relate to and he is respectful of students. He has some good stories to tell and is a funny guy. I highly recomend psychology with him. The 11 page essay wasnt too horrible with the guidelines he gives.

Mr. Bain is probably the best teacher that I have ever had in high school. He knows what he is talking about and has a great teaching style that allows kids to get more of a sense of how history is connected and how it is fun to learn. His Psychology class is good too. He gives real life examples from his own life so that certain concepts are easier to understand. Besides being a teacher he is a great friend to any student and is a hilarious guy.

Mr Bain is an interesting teacher. If you dont read the book, you WILL fail the tests. He gives other assignments which bring your grade up to at least an 80 if you fail tests. Hes a great guy too. :)

Bain is a pretty cool guy and makes class interesting. He knows his stuff and if you listen to him you will learn at least some history. If you are in his AP class, be warned that if you don't outline every chapter (whether or not he makes you do it), you will do very badly on his tests.

His tests r BRUTAL!!! his notes are very interesting and he loves to give get group activities. I had him for AP History and Psychology. His notes you may totally understand...but the notes...is EXACTLY whats NOT going to be on his tests. His tests r definately brutal but he adds some homework here and there worth a load of points to bring up grades

he certainly makes Ap history a hard and threatening class look rediculously easy at first impression. His students knew ahead of time ths was a hard class there nothign he can do about it, so i think its a little unfair to rate by how easy his class is.

actually turned out to be a very nice guy. As long as he's not stressed, he can be quite a good teacher. Notes are useless and tests are hard but he knows a bit about history

THe material he taught he taught well, but that was a very little amount. His tests were impossible, and he wasn't that willing to help. A bunch of us came in early to study for the midterm and we asked him to clarify a few things and he just told us "If you don't know it now, you never will." He's a nice guy, but he misses school a lot and he often fishes for compliments in regards to his teaching

Mr. Bain. Nice guy, easy going,petty funny and he relates well to his students, but Man! His tests are brutal. However, it evens out when he give most of them a curve, but still pay attention in class, and study and you'll be fine. Mr. B's a nice guy, really he is.
