He is an amazing person! But he can not teach. I genuinely have no clue what is going on in class. It is so hard to understand anything.... APCHEM is terrible.

His class is really really really hard. It's so tough to understand what's going on sometimes because he wants YOU to teach things to yourself because he's "preparing you for college"

Mr. Mclain is one of the nicest teachers I have ever had, and he's really good at the whole chemistry thing. But expect to learn a lot of the topics at home, from the book.

Very hard to stay awake in his class.. he tends to talk pretty slow. He'll help you if you come in for it, though. Also, he tends to digress on really odd stuff

The most monotonous speaking teacher I have ever had. His tests are killers, and he doesn't seem to teach enough. He does help out if you come in during lunch
