11/11/14 - Mr. Toy is probably the hardest teacher I will ever have the only upside is he basically shoves history down your throat. You have no choice but to learn, and not in a good way. Show More Show Less
10/23/14 - When people say Kailim is a good teacher, what they really are trying to say is that he forces you to memorize or die. Rather than giving his students a love of history, he makes them hate it. He will ruin your GPA under the pretense of a "College Level" class. Show More Show Less
09/12/14 - Mr. Toy is a good teacher. People say a lot about how he is mean and doesn't give the grades they deserve, but some of them just need to deal. I admit he is quite nit-picky about many things but he makes sure that you understand the material. Mr. Toy is good about teaching and making sure that his students are in touch with the world. Yes, he is a bit persistent when it comes to opinions but otherwise he is a great teacher to have. (and I didn't get an A so I'm not just saying this) Show More Show Less
08/16/14 - Insecure and childish. Will hate you if you disagree with him and will pick on you for the rest of the year. So many unhappy students here that regret being in this program. They punish you for being smart. Teachers don't work with parents. Show More Show Less
04/05/13 - I found his class quite difficult. He does drill the ap subjects into his students, yet he does not allow the students to express their own ideas. What Mr.Toy thinks is right, is right. Outside of class he is a very kind and welcoming teacher, yet he is strict and bias during class. Show More Show Less
He's a great teacher, but his expectations are extremely high.
He expects you to read and memorize the chapter (~ 30 pages) in 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
His pops (I mean... "Reading Essays") and tests are harshly graded.
However, he prepares his students for the AP very well (almost a guaranteed 5).
Other than his strict history teacher-"ness", he is an enjoyable and a funny man who absolutely ADORES Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. :D Show More Show Less
03/14/12 - Mr Toy's class is quite difficult and you will do terribly if you don't do the reading. I find that some of his pops and test questions are ridiculously inconspicuous ideas in the book. He expects you to memorize the book and do all the extra credit, and then maybe you'll get the A. You do learn a lot from his class if you can stay awake, and hes a really nice guy outside of the classroom. If only he could be so nice in his grade-book. Show More Show Less
01/17/12 - Mr. Toy is one of those teachers that people love to hate. His class is hard, you have to do hours of reading and studying to prepare for his tests, and the margin of error between getting an A and a B in his class is intimidatingly small. That all being said, this was the only class that even remotely resembled a college learning environment. Love him or hate him, he knows what he's doing and will teach you a lot if you're willing to learn. Show More Show Less
01/16/12 - Mr. Toy was, without a doubt, one of the best teachers in the magnet when I attended NHHS, and if he is still there, I can only assume that this is still the case. I am unsurprised by the relatively low rating he has received; his classes wer certainly the most difficult I took, his strict nature is undeniable. Understandably, his popularity suffers for this. However, he without a doubt taught me more than any other teacher, and both of my 5s in history APs back this up. Show More Show Less
01/09/12 - mr. toy is a nice guy outside the classroom but inside its all business, i feel he is a great teacher but his grading is so difficult that your ap socre reflects a grade HIGHER then what you really got, but never give stupid answers in his class Show More Show Less
12/17/11 - I'm sorry, but Mr. Toy is a very bad teacher. Not to say that he isn't very knowledgeable on the subject, but he is very intimidating and rude to students, his tests and grading policies are ridiculous, and any opinion that doesn't agree with his is wrong. His class is almost impossible, and will bring down your GPA, although you will get a good score on the AP. I am very good at history, and received a D in this class. Many people did worse.
